English first additional language

Grade 6

Module 36

To use a dictionary to develop vocabulary

Activity 1:

To give other learners a chance to speak [lo 1.5.1]

To sustain a conversation [lo 2.1.2]

To create a graph [lo 5.4.2]

We are going to focus on YOU again in this activity! We want to see just how well you cope with being by yourself? Some people love being on their own, having time to think and do exactly what they like. Other people find the thought of being alone rather scary and like to have people or family around them most of the time. What do you do on dull and rainy days when your friends are all away and you cannot bear the company of your brother or sister a moment longer? Try this quiz to see how you shape up…by yourself. Be completely honest and do not discuss your answers with your friends just yet - there will be time for that later. Underline your answer with a ruler.

1. When I’m by myself I generally:

  1. mope;
  2. turn on the TV;

c. grab the chance to write my first best-selling novel.

2. If it’s raining, I always:

  1. complain bitterly to whoever will listen that there’s nothing to do;
  2. kill time until the rain stops;
  3. rush outside in my Wellington boots to try out my new design for a puddle yacht.

3. When I grow up, I intend to be:

  1. prime minister;
  2. the first astronaut on Mars;
  3. an inventor.

4. I think brothers and sisters are:

  1. essential;
  2. quite useful;

c. all right in small doses/a nuisance.

5. My idea of a really good time is:

  1. a big party with numerous games and a magician;
  2. watching Star Wars on video for the fourteenth time;
  3. building a secret den at the end of the garden.

6. To me, a good book is:

  1. a handy doorstop;
  2. a way of passing the time;
  3. a place of magic and adventure.

7. My main complaint about my parents is they will not let me have my own:

  1. telephone;
  2. hi-fi system;
  3. private castle.

8. If I were marooned on a desert island, I would probably:

  1. go mad with boredom;
  2. plan an immediate rescue attempt;

c. build a cabin and learn to catch fish.

Now we are going to take your answers and plot them on a graph to see how you would do on your own. Colour in the following graph according to the answers you underlined.

My answers to the questions:

Can I be alone?
Question 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

Now take a careful look at your answers! Are they mostly a’s, b’s or c’s?

Number of a’s: __________

Number of b’s: __________

Number of c’s: __________

Look at the following explanations to see how you did.

If you scored mostly a’s

Without other people you completely fall apart. One day you may really find yourself on a desert island with only a parrot for company – so find out how to have fun by yourself now, before it is too late!

If you scored mostly b’s

You cope quite well with being alone – but you do not really make the most of it. Try taking a break from the TV and try some activities from books for a rainy day – you will soon see what you have been missing!

If you scored mostly c’s

You are obviously a natural ‘by yourselfer’ and will go on to achieve great things. Books are your friends and your imagination your inspiration!

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?
is it a question of log
I rally confuse this number And equations too I need exactly help
But this is not salma it's Faiza live in lousvile Ky I garbage this so I am going collage with JCTC that the of the collage thank you my friends

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

types of nano material
abeetha Reply
I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
many many of nanotubes
what is the k.e before it land
what is the function of carbon nanotubes?
I'm interested in nanotube
what is nanomaterials​ and their applications of sensors.

what is nano technology

what is system testing?
preparation of nanomaterial
Victor Reply
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?
