Grade 8

Land and power

Module 1

The historian and concepts

The historian and concepts

The concepts land and power are closely related to one another. A person is allocated to the ruling class or the working class on the basis of his or her productive ability. The product then includes capital (money), land, buildings, mines, machinery, etc.

The conflict between the two classes therefore is based on the contrasting relationships that they experience in relation to the product. The ruling class, which can also be called the capitalist class or the middle class or the bourgeoisie (French Revolution), possesses the means of production, while the working class or proletariat or Bolsheviks (Russian Revolution) sell their labour by working in the fields, in the factories or in the mines belonging to the ruling class.

  • In order to grasp this conflict, the historian, in other words all the learners in the History class, must ask complicated questions about all conflict situations, such as:

1. What belongs to whom?

2. Who does what work?

3. Who works for whom?

Activity 1: group work (getting to know one another) [lo1.1]

  • Divide into discussion groups.

Assignment 1:

Discuss the division of work in a normal family as your group knows it. Ensure that each member of the group gets an opportunity to have a say.

Assignment 2:

Discuss the degree of cooperation between the ruling class (parents/guardians) and the working class (children) to ensure the smooth functioning of the household.

Assignment 3:

Now complete the following:

(a) My own place in our home is my_______

I am proud of it because __________

(b) My parents/guardians are employees/employers of______________

(c) I am not a burden to my family, because I take responsibility for_________

Activity 2: group assessment exercise [lo 1.1]

Assignment 4:

Each learner is now given a turn to read his/her answers to Assignment 3 and each member of the group indicates what mark he/she wants to allocate to it. If necessary, a member of the group can motivate why a lower or a better mark is necessary.

The group must agree on the mark. The following simple scale is used to determine if the learner is an ADVANTAGE to his/her family.

1 = The learner at least lives with his/her family.

2 = The learner is sometimes, or has been of use to his/her family.

3 = The learner is of real use to his/her family.

4 = The learner’s contribution to his/her family is an outstanding performance.

At the end of this module, you must hand in a project on The French Revolution. You will receive the necessary information step for step. Today you only have to

( a ) inform the people at home that you are looking for information on the topic and

( b ) look up/find out the definition of revolution. Complete:

Revolution:___________________________________

Source:_______________________________________

EXAMPLE of the recording of information that is obtained from a specific source.

revolution , uprising, radical change.

Source:

a) information on the author(s) (first the surname, then the names/initials)

Questions & Answers

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

algebra 2 Inequalities:If equation 2 = 0 it is an open set?
Kim Reply
or infinite solutions?
Kim
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

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
Azam
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
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?
