Let a third person read here and explain fully:

There is one extra way of doing this. Place one learner at the front of the room. S(he) has a list of titles. One member from each team goes up to her/him and is given a title. This member then returns to the group and either acts out or draws the title for the group. There may be no speaking by the member whose turn it is.

If the group successfully guesses the title, then the next member goes up to fetch the next title.

Obviously the answer must not be shouted out because the other team will hear!

The team that correctly identifies all the titles first is the winner.

Enjoy the activity, but make sure that you learn about communication at the same time!

  • Look at the following checklist to guide you:
Clarity of gestures
Correct break-down of the words
Correct animation
Cleverness of clues
Success rate

Activity 4:

To be able to read text for purpose, audience, context

[lo 3.1.1]

The educator will select the readers for this activity.

  • As you are reading to the class, you need to read clearly.

The passage will be read TWICE:

  • Your first reading just gives the class the idea of what the passage is about (the theme); something about the characters; where and when the story takes place, and something about the style of the writer.
  • The SECOND reading will help the class to pick up details or missed facts.

TIP : It is sometimes useful in a comprehension activity to read just the first sentence of all the paragraphs and to look at the source of the writing as these give important clues.

If you want to skim-read, then pick out the main nouns and verbs ONLY as you read.

Somehow your brain makes the connections.

It is amazing how much you can learn in such a short time.


Excitement was in the air! It was that time of year again…school concert time!

The hall was alive with the voices of energised children discussing what they would be doing in the concert. Groups were forming, and those already established were frantically practising.

This year’s concert was different from others before…this year a local business was sponsoring the best group and the prize was: A musical trip to Botswana, Namibia and Scotland!

The Pally Band [PB] was a group made up of six friends: Chrystal, on percussions; Dawid, on keyboard (he could also make music with bottles); Vusi, who played the saxophone and violin; Nizaam, the lead singer (and harmonica player); Charlie (a girl), the guitarist, and lastly, Jaco, who played the marimbas and did gumboot-dancing as well.

This versatile group could play anything from bluesy jazz music to rock; from traditional African music to classic Bach and Vivaldi. The six of them practised diligently every afternoon, and every weekend. Charlie’s dad, Uncle Henry, let them use his garage - he was very supportive of his daughter’s band and of her friends.

To repay him, they wanted to win the competition.

With the exception of Dawid, all the band members had their own instruments, which they permanently set up in the garage. The headmistress kindly loaned her son’s keyboard to Dawid for the duration of the practice sessions.

Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
is it a question of log

or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

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
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

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.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
