LO 1.3.4

Read the excerpt about the position of the planets. After a second reading, allow the children to draw the sun in the centre. Read the position of each planet in relation to the sun and each other. Write the names on the board so that the children can write them in on the diagram

The planets

Pluto is the coldest planet and furthest from the sun. Earth is the third planet from the sun. It has air and water and can support life. The hottest planet is Mercury. Venus lies between Mercury and Earth. We can see it from Earth just after sunset. It is usually the first and brightest star that we can see. It is also called the Evening Star. Neptune lies just before Pluto. It has two moons. If you travelled towards the sun from Earth, you would pass one planet before coming to the largest planet, Jupiter. Mars has a red colour. It comes after Earth. Saturn has five rings around it. It is found between Jupiter and Uranus. Saturn is nearly as big as Jupiter. Uranus comes after Saturn but before Neptune. It seems to be spinning on its side. It is mostly made of liquid and gases like Jupiter and Saturn.

LO 1.1 LO 1.2
  • Read the following nursery rhyme. Nursery rhymes are usually very old and have been passed down by mothers to their children. Sometimes they are meant as a lullaby to put babies to sleep. Sometimes they are short poems, which play around with words. Then they do not always make sense. The important part is the rhyming.

The man in the moon

The man in the moon came tumbling down

To ask the way to Norwich

He went by the south and burnt his mouth

By eating cold plum porridge.

(Pronounce Norwich so as to rhyme with porridge)

  • Write out a nursery rhyme, which you enjoy. You can also try to make up your own. Illustrate your rhyme and read it to the class. Remember to read it with expression!

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.

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

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?
