Module 9


Assignment 1:


[lo 1.10]

PLANNING: Before we make the game, we have to do some thorough PLANNING.

a. Which materials am I going to use to make the board game?

b. Which actions will I be executing (e.g. cutting, pasting, etc.)?

c. Which tools will I use to make the game?

d. Here are some guidelines for the basic steps that have to be taken. Determine how much time you will need for each step if you have two hours available.

Steps Time
1. Cut out cardboard of 30 cm by 30 cm.
2. Cover cardboard with gift wrap.
3. Draw design to scale on white paper.
4. Colour / decorate board with pencils / pens / Koki pens.
5. Cut out square of ± 25 cm by 25 cm.
6. Paste square onto cardboard.
7. Add name of game on the outside.
8. Compile pamphlet containing rules.
9. Cover toothpaste box with gift wrap that is glued onto it.
10. Place rules and accessories in toothpaste box.
2 h

e Before you make your final game, it is important for you to test it to make sure that it works. Draw a PROTOTYPE (example) roughly in your class workbook and play the game with a friend. This is the time to make the necessary changes. Write the change(s) here:

Assignment 2:

Now make the board of your board game

[lo 1.9]

The following factors must be taken into account:

  • Do you work thoroughly and according to a plan without being too hasty?
  • Do you affix the various parts carefully so that they will not come apart later?
  • Do you measure accurately according to the requirements?
  • Do you work in a logical order ?
  • Do you erase the pencil lines once you have drawn the final lines with a pen or Koki?
  • Do you colour in evenly ?
  • Do you use the available materials sparingly ?
  • Are the cardboard surfaces on which you have to paste paper smooth and flat ?
  • Do I see to it that my work area is tidy ?
  • Is my work area well organised so that I can work as effectively as possible?

Assignment 3:

Draw to scale

[lo 1.12]

Now you have to learn how to enlarge the plan of your game to scale .


  • Return to your final design under number 3.
  • With a pencil and ruler divide this square into 25 small squares of 1 cm by 1 cm.
  • Carefully draw a large square of 25 cm by 25 cm on the large sheet of white paper. Draw the frame with a permanent marking pen so that it is dark.
  • With your pencil and ruler divide this square into 25 small squares of 5 cm by 5 cm.
  • You are now ready to transfer your design onto the big white page in pencil. Draw the content of each little square in your small design in the corresponding squares on the large white sheet. It will, of course, be larger than on the initial sheet.

  • Which electronic device is capable of enlarging your design? What is the advantage of using such a machine?
  • If you are satisfied with your design you may draw the most important lines with a permanent marker so that they are dark.
  • Now you may complete the colouring in or decorating of your product.

Assignment 4:

[lo 1.8]

Three important requirements for the pamphlet containing the rules , are that the content must be neat, legible and without any spelling mistakes . With the teacher’s permission you may type the pamphlet at home on a computer, and print it, or otherwise write it out neatly in print.

how do they get the third part x = (32)5/4

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
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?

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

I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
many many of nanotubes

I'm interested in nanotube

Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...
Himanshu Reply
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
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?
