Books, for the mind

Module 3

A book display

Activity 1

To discuss and compare different opinions [lo 2.1.7]

To respond with and show respect to others [lo 2.2.5, 2.2.8]

What you need to do

  • As a group, decide on a theme. You could, for example, choose an author like Beatrix Potter and display a number of her books or you could choose a cartoon character like Garfield and display a variety of comic strips and annuals about him. You could even choose a topic like gardening and display books to encourage gardening as a hobby .
  • Collect your books/magazines/comics and plan your display.
  • Supply information cards so that the viewer can be guided to note special details of your display. Your teacher will supply the paper for the information cards.

The quiz

  • Set up the questions that your viewer will be able to answer from the information supplied on your display.

Activity 2

To treat others with respect in group work [lo 2.2.8]

To speak clearly and at a good pace [lo 2.3.3]

Speaking

FEED YOUR MIND AND SHARE YOUR SNACK WITH YOUR FRIENDS

What you will need

  • Your favourite book or story or character from a story
  • A two-minute presentation - no costumes at this stage (you will be timed, so practise this at home!)

What you will do

  • Bravely present your two minute “snack” to your group
  • Be creative and original – WOW your audience!
  • Sell your product!

What the group will do

  • Look and listen
  • Adjudicate - make a grid, like the example below, for each presenter.

1 = boring 2 = so-so 3 = good 4 = Oscar performance!

NAME:
  • Creativity and originality
1 2 3 4
  • WOW
1 2 3 4
  • Audibility
1 2 3 4
  • Audience contact
1 2 3 4

After every actor has had a chance to perform, vote for the Oscar Award Winner from your group. Cast your votes NOW. These actors then perform for the whole class to round off the “show”.

NEXT UP - You’ll have to do some homework.

Now don’t panic. All actors get to go home and study their script for the next day. Your teacher will supply the script (an Aesop’s Fable) and all you have to do is read it thoroughly. Be sure you know the storyline and characters. Imagine how you would stage the story. Practise some moves.For tomorrow you will have to discuss the scene with your group and pool your ideas. Yes, you are going to make the Fable come alive!

Tips

  • Make use of a storyteller (narrator).
  • Give every group member a part.
  • There is a two-minute time limit.
  • Energy and enthusiasm are vitally important.

Activity 3

Questions & Answers

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

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

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?

this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
Prasenjit
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?
