Educator section

Memorandum

In Grade 3 learners continue to expand their vocabulary by listening and reading a variety of texts such as poem, stories, riddles and doing word puzzles.

These modules consolidate and revise the vocabulary and phonics introduced in Grade 2. More opportunities are given for written work producing longer texts of more varied kinds. Learners should not be afraid to make mistakes as the building of confidence and fluency should take priority above perfect written work.

Time scheduled for the modules

All learners should work through all eight modules as the phonics and spelling requirements are spread over these modules. The educator should however allow learners to complete them at their own pace namely ± two modules per term.

Zigi, the baby zebra grows up and becomes King Leo’s best friend. Together they teach the monkeys and the crocodiles a lesson. Phonics are extended with the learning of the sounds “ tch ”, “ ai ”, “ ay ”, “ e ” at the end of a word changes the sounds of the vowels. More sounds: “ ar ”, “ or , “ oa ”, “ oe ”, “ ie ”, “ er ”, “ ur ”, “ oy ” and “ oi ”.

Learners answer questions about a graph. They read a factual passage on “Animal Camouflage” and discuss what they have learnt.

Integration of themes

  • Social Justice

Patterns of behaviour are important and social skills should be developed and practised.

  • Human rights

By observing the behaviour of all the animals in the stories, learners become aware of the rights of the people around them.

  • A healthy environment

As the creatures of the forest need to live in harmony with one another, so must people learn correct behavioural patterns.

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?

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.

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