Grade 4

Map work

Module 7

Large scale maps

1. The World

From this picture we can deduct that the earth is round. A round map of the earth is called a globe.

Have you ever tried to cut open and flatten a deflated ball? That is why most world maps portray the earth as “flat”.

2. Africa (my continent)

  • The continent on which you live, is called ……………………………………….
  • Africa is the second largest continent on earth. Africa consists of 49 countries. A country is a large piece of earth within fixed borders. The borders separate one country from the other.

Activity 1

To read a map of the world [lo 1.5]

Study the map of the world on the previous page and answer the questions.

1. How many continents are there? …………………………………………

2. Which continent is the largest? ……………………………………………

3. Which continent is the smallest?……….……………………………………

4. Which ocean is found between Africa and South America?…………………

Which ocean is found between South America and Australia?

Activity 2

Map work: africa [lo 1.5]

Colour in all the countries on the African continent beginning with an “N” in brown.

1. Colour your country (South Africa) red.

2. Write down the names of the countries that border on South Africa.

A country that borders on another country is called a neighbouring country .

3. South Africa (My land)

  • South Africa lies at the southern tip of the African continent. Like other countries a government that also makes the laws of the country rules South Africa.
  • Look carefully at the map of South Africa.

Within the borders of a country there are other borders that divide the country into provinces.

  • How many provinces are there in South Africa? ..............................
  • Borders are determined by people and can therefore be changed. Until 1994 there were only four provinces.

Activity 3

To answer questions on map work [lo 1.5]

Look carefully at the map key of South Africa and answer the following questions:

1. Which big mountain range do we find in Kwazulu-Natal?

2. Name three minerals that are mined in the Northern Cape.

3. Which province is the farthest north?

4. Which river on the northern border of the Northern Cape flows into the Atlantic Ocean?

5. In which ocean will you be swimming when holidaying in Durban?

6. Which province is the smallest?

7. In which province are you when you are on a holiday in Port Elizabeth?

  1. True / False? The coal mined in Mpumalanga can be exported to other countries by boat

Activity 4

To use information from sources to answer questions about people and places [lo 1.5]

Your educator will hang a wall map of the world in the classroom. Listen to the world news every day and read newspapers. Bring geography articles to class and let your educator indicate with a pin on the wall map on which continent the events occurred. Discuss them and give your own opinion.



Learning outcome 1: geographical enquiry

The learner will be able to use enquiry skills to investigate geographical and

environmental concepts and processes.

Assessment standard

We know this when the learner:

1.5 identifies important political boundaries and key human and physical features on large-scale maps [works with sources].

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.
Ramkumar Reply
what is nano technology
Sravani Reply
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?
