Module 4

Creative abilities

FLEX YOUR CREATIVITY MUSCLE!

This section deals with the development of your creative abilities.

Many people think only about drawing, painting or writing when they hear that someone is a creative person. Creativity spans a much wider field than the finer arts.

Creativity means the ability to create something new and original or to use existing things in a new and different way.

The "what if..." exercises are examples of thinking differently about things.

  • Bear the following words and phrases in mind when you aim to improve your creative abilities:
  • look at things in different ways
  • unusual
  • original
  • this makes me think about... (association)
  • do not judge too quickly
  • look at form and function
  • use your sense of humour

To shake out dust and cobwebs!

In 8 seconds (without discussing it beforehand):

a) Divide a square into 4 parts

b) Divide an 8 into 2

  • Did everybody do a) and b) in the same way? Yes / No
  • How many different ways are there to do a) ?
  • Can the instruction for b) be interpreted in more than one way?
  • Would you do a) and b) differently is you should get another chance? Yes / No

Did old habits play a role in the answers given by the class? I bet many of you were a bit thrown by the simple exercises.

Brainteasers

  • Do not settle for the obvious.
  • Lateral thinking is a must.

Can you answer this?

1. What starts with T, ends with T and is full of T?

2. From a word with 5 letters, take away 2 letters and get 1.

3. What bird can lift the heaviest weight?

4. What is it that someone else has to take before you can get it?

5. How many times may 20 be subtracted from 100?

6. How many marbles can you put into an empty bag?

7. What kind of jacket is always burning?

Assessment

Learning outcomes(LOs)

LO 3

PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT

The learner will be able to use acquired life skills to achieve and extend personal potential to respond effectively to challenges in his or her world.

Assessment standards(ASs)

We know this when the learner:

3.3 responds appropriately to emotions in challenging situations;

3.4 explains what has been learned from a challenging personal ineraction by critically reflecting on own behaviour;

3.6 critically evaluates own application of problem-solving skills in a challenging situation.

what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
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.

what is the application of nanotechnology?
Stotaw
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
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.
