Learning outcomes(LOs)
LO 2
Patterns Functions and AlgebraThe learner will be able to recognise, describe and represent patterns and relationships, as well as to solve problems, using algebraic language and skills.
We know this when the learner :
2.1 investigates and extends numerical and geometrical patterns to find relationships and rules, including patterns that:2.1.1 are presented in physical or diagrammatic form;2.1.2 are not limited to series with constant difference or ratio;2.1.3 occur in natural and cultural contexts; 2.1.4 are created by the learner him/herself;2.1.5 are presented in tables;2.1.6 are presented algebraically;
2.2 describes, explains and justifies observed relationships or rules in own words or in algebra;
2.3 represents and uses relationships between variables to determine input an output values in a variety of ways by making use of:2.3.1 verbal descriptions;2.3.2 flow diagrams;2.3.3 tables;2.3.4 formulas and equations;
2.4 builds mathematical models that represent, describe and provide solutions to problem situations, thereby revealing responsibility towards the environment and the health of other people (including problems in the contexts of human rights, social, economic, cultural and environmental issues);
2.7 is able to determine, analyse and interpret the equivalence of different descriptions of the same relationship or rule which can be represented:2.7.1 verbally;2.7.2 by means of flow diagrams;2.7.3 in tables;2.7.4 by means of equations or expressions to thereby select the most practical representation of a given situation;
2.8 is able to use conventions of algebraic notation and the variable, reconcilable and distributive laws to:2.8.1 classify terms like even and odd and to account for the classification;2.8.2 assemble equal terms;2.8.3 multiply or divide an algebraic expression with one, two, or three terms by a monomial;
2.8.4 simplify algebraic expressions in bracketed notation using one or two sets of brackets and two types of operation;2.8.5 compare different versions of algebraic expressions having one or two operations, select those that are equivalent and motivate the selected examples;2.8.6 rewrite algebraic expressions, formulas or equations in context in simpler or more usable form;
2.9 is able to interpret and use the following algebraic ideas in context: term, expression, coefficient, exponent (or index), basis, constant, variable, equation, formula (or rule).

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
s.
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.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
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.

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.
