Grade 9

Hidden treasures

Module 11

To collect, record and present information

Activity 1:

To collect, record and present information

[lo 2.6, 5.3]

Now we would like to see how creative you can be when you convey information. You will be exploring communication through visual literacy.

You will make a collage in which the individual talents of the whole group are displayed.

Use any interesting materials: photographs, magazine or newspaper clippings, bright pieces of paper or material, tinfoil, sweet wrappings, your own drawings, matches, glitter, sand, beans, lentils, dried flowers or twigs/leaves – absolutely anything that you have at your disposal!

  • First you must establish the various talents in your group that you are going to represent in your picture (collage). Remember that at least one talent of each learner in the group must be represented.
  • Here is one idea of how you could organise your group:
  • Learner 1: draws something
  • Learner 2: writes a poem on the specific theme
  • Learner 3: adds relevant photographs or pictures from magazines, etc. creatively
  • Learner 4: adds a relevant quotation or two
  • Learner 5: adds an interesting frame to the whole collage
  • Learner 6: adds finishing touches, e.g. buttons, bottle tops, quills, etc.
  • Now proudly present your ideas to your class:
  • introduce the team
  • explain your idea
  • explain what the different sections represent
  • explain who was responsible for what
  • check the criteria in the block below to ensure that you cover all the aspects on which you will be assessed
  • First do your rough work.

Discovering your talents: think about following a dream you have always had; think of what you’re passionate about; think about what you enjoy doing; think about what you have done well at, in the past . . .

Write down any particular emotions you feel concerning your plans:

Write down any particular thoughts you have on your course of action:

Write down any extra ideas you may have:

Which talent/s are you going to write about:

Write down specific words you might use:

Diary Checklist Yes No
Do I have a date?
Have I used the pronouns ‘I’,’me’,’my’?
Have I checked my spelling?
Have I checked my punctuation?
Have I used informal register?
Have I used my best handwriting?

So, are you ready to plot the next X’s ?

  • (HINT: Captain’s Collage Creek; Presentation Peak )

Activity 2:

To write for personal reflection

[lo 4.3]

  • You are extremely excited about all the hidden treasures you can discover in yourself.
  • Write a diary entry on what you are going to do to discover and develop these talents. Discovering and developing your talents at a young age will enrich your life and give it more meaning. Your talents could make you famous or help to improve others’ lives. Write sincerely and not just for a mark or because your educator says you must.
  • Remember that you are confiding in your best friend, so use informal language but not slang .
  • Include the date and perhaps you can give your diary a name!

You are ready to make your next X on your treasure island map. (HINT: Writing Rapids )

Assessment

LO 2

tion and enjoyment, and respond critically to the aesthetic, cultural and emotional values in texts.

We know this when the learner:

3.1 reads a text (fiction or non-fiction):

3.2 understands some elements of poetry and of the terms used to describe this language;

3.3 reads and responds to social texts;

3.4 reads for information.

LO 4

Writing

The learner will be able to write different kinds of factual and imaginative texts for a wide range of purposes.

We know this when the learner:

4.2 writes for social purposes;

4.4 writes creatively;

LO 5

Thinking and Reasoning

The learner will be able to use language to think and reason, as well as to access, process and use information for learning.

We know this when the learner:

5.1 uses language and literacy across the curriculum;

5.2 uses language for thinking:

5.2.5 draws ;

5.3 collects and records information in different ways.

Memorandum

ACTIVITY 1

  • Although a group project, the oral assessment is done individually. It is important to emphasise that everyone must do his/her part and that the load is equally divided. It is important that learners learn to work effectively within a group.

X’s: Captain’s Collage Creek; Presentation Peak

ACTIVITY 2

  • Encourage the learners to write sincerely: it could just be the stepping stone they need to start developing those hidden talents.

Discuss famous diaries and their value. One that always works well is ‘The Diary of Anne Frank’.

Discuss the psychological benefit of having an emotional outlet by keeping a diary.

X: Writing Rapids.

kinnecy Reply
can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
ninjadapaul
20/(×-6^2)
Salomon
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
ninjadapaul
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
ninjadapaul
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
Salomon
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
Salomon
I got X =-6
Salomon
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
ninjadapaul
oops. ignore that.
ninjadapaul
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
ninjadapaul
hmm
Abhi
is it a question of log
Abhi
🤔.
Abhi
I rally confuse this number And equations too I need exactly help

algebra 2 Inequalities:If equation 2 = 0 it is an open set?
Kim Reply
or infinite solutions?
Kim
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
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
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
Damian
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
Azam
Hello
Uday
I'm interested in Nanotube
Uday
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
Prasenjit
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
Ali Reply
the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
