Activity 3:

Creative oral project

[lo 5.3.1]

This team presentation is built around the individual talks by the members of your group.

It will be assessed by your classmates.

Each group in your class must prepare an oral project on ONE centre of interest: Animals .

The topic is: all creatures great and small

Appoint “office holders” who will be responsible for certain duties.

These appointments will rotate for different group projects.

The leader is responsible for. . .

  • maintaining discipline in the group.
  • ensuring that everyone takes part in the discussions.
  • making sure that only English is spoken during the discussion.

The scribe is responsible for . . .

  • taking notes to record what has been said by whom.

The administrator is responsible for . . .

  • listing the members of the group.
  • writing the main topic down neatly.
  • writing each individual topic next to members’ names.
  • delivering this information to the educator who will file and use it for assessment.

The spokesperson must . . .

  • present the group and announce the topic.
  • introduce each member in turn.
  • act as host / master of ceremonies / chairperson.

How does a class theme work?

  • Each group of five members chooses an animal topic.
  • Divide the topic into sections or facets of the same topic.
  • Each member now prepares one section or facet.
  • The prepared speeches must be presented as a team effort.
  • Consider the time limit you have been given.

Choose and organize a topic:

Here are a few “animal” ideas which might inspire you.

Use them as they are or apply the pattern to an idea of your own.

Animals that work for man Creatures that live in the ocean
1. Police dogs 1. Dolphin
2. Guide dogs 2. Octopus
3. Horses 3. Sea Horse

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

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?
