This module represents best use of rehearsal time on special days caused by unusual events in the community or school that create a particular distraction for the singers. Also addressed is the importance of using rehearsal time to the greatest advantage; not wasting valuable time in the rehearsal.

Special day rehearsals

There are certain days of the year that need special consideration. These are days of schoolwide activities that have the students' emotions aroused. For instance, homecoming, football games, most ball game days (particularly important tournament games), school elections, the day of or immediately preceding the Junior-Senior Prom, and other such days. The amount of attention that the director needs to give these kinds of days depends entirely on the participation and interest of the choir members. It is unfair to expect the usual concentration, for example, from a senior girl who is a nominee for Homecoming Queen on the day that the results are to be announced. Nothing will remove that event from her mind that day. The same can be applied to other choir members who are deeply involved in other school activities. This is also true of church and community choirs. As events in the community occur these affect the singers and often detract from their attention. Recognize this and adapt the rehearsal accordingly. Do not be afraid to comment on it at the beginning of the rehearsal, demonstrating your understanding and using that as a means of directing their attention to the music. The director must be flexible enough to accept this and be less demanding in terms of extended concentration. Keep the rehearsal moving faster than usual, sing more pieces, and do very little part rehearsing. Sing through entire works as much as possible. This does not mean that one should not rehearse diligently. The students should always know that choral rehearsals will continue through all other student activities. One cannot eliminate rehearsals for every school event that involves choir members. However, a director can be considerate of this involvement and shape a rehearsal accordingly. This rehearsal will not likely be the same kind of rehearsal that one would expect of the same students two days before a choral clinic or concert.

Use of rehearsal time

Utilize all available rehearsal time. Start rehearsals on time. Use the break as an opportunity to take care of announcements. Have a student take the attendance so the director can be rehearsing. If three minutes are wasted while the director takes attendance of a choir of sixty, he has wasted three minutes of all sixty persons, or 180 minutes (three hours) of time. Take a hard look at rehearsal time and use every minute that is available as economically as possible. It has been this author's observation that directors whose groups do not meet every day often make better use of rehearsal time than directors who are able to have their ensemble once a day. The former are more aware of the value of their rehearsal time. There is usually not as much rehearsal time as one would want; do not waste any of it.

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

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

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?
