Module 3

Expanding your vocabulary of common spoken words

Activity 1:

To expand vocabulary of common spoken words

[lo 6.4.4]


Do you know how to fix a puncture? If you do, you should not have any difficulty with this exercise. If you have never had to fix a puncture before, this exercise will help you learn what you should do. It will also help you learn the correct vocabulary to use when talking about bicycles and punctures. The pictures are there to help you, so study them carefully. Fill the missing words in on the lines provided.

First check the valve . Wet your finger and put it on the________ . If you see a_______ , the valve is leaking. You may need to buy a new tube .

Take the ________ off the bike. Let the tyre down. Do this by taking

the valve out or pushing down the centre pin .

Pinch the tyre away from the _________ . Do this all the way round the wheel.

Put a tyre lever between the rim and the tyre. Put another __________

a bit further round. Lever the tyre off the rim. Use levers to free a

third of the tyre. The rest can be done by hand.

Take the inner tube out. Look for the __________ .

If you cannot see one, put the tube in some _______. Bubbles will come

out from the hole. Put your finger over the hole. Mark it with some


Roughen the place around the hole with_________ .

Spread rubber cement around the hole. Wait until the cement is

tacky. Cut a________ of the right size.

Take the backing paper off the patch . Put the patch over the hole

and _______ hard.

Cover the patch with______ to dry the uncovered cement.

_____ that there is nothing sharp inside the tyre.

Pump a little air into the______.

Push the tube into the tyre.

Pull the valve through the hole in the wheel rim .

Push the tyre _____ the wheel rim. Start at the valve. Do this on

both sides. The second side will be much more difficult. Try not to

use levers because they might ______ the inner tube.

Fix the valve in place with the valve nut.

Put the ______ back on the bike.


LO 6
LANGUAGE STRUCTURE AND USE The learner will know and be able to use the sounds, words and grammar of the language to create and interpret texts.
We know this when the learner:
6.4 develops own vocabulary.
6.4.2 recognises words which sound the same but are spelled differently;
6.4.3 recognises words which are often confused;
6.4.4 understands between 4 000 and 5 500 common spoken words in context by the end of grade 6.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
What is lattice structure?
s. Reply
of graphene you mean?
or in general
in general
Graphene has a hexagonal structure

I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
many many of nanotubes
what is the k.e before it land
what is the function of carbon nanotubes?
I'm interested in nanotube
what is nanomaterials​ and their applications of sensors.
Ramkumar Reply
what is nano technology
Sravani Reply
what is system testing?
preparation of nanomaterial
Victor Reply
Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...
Himanshu Reply
good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
