A Learning Programme for Grade R

Module 2






The activities of this programme have been designed in accordance with the requirements of outcomes based education. It therefore provides the learners with opportunities to develop their full potential in becoming active, responsible, fulfilled citizens of a democratic, non-racial and equal society. Grade R provides the bridge between the learner’s preschool experiences and the formal school system. Grade R educators use learning outcomes and the accompanying assessment standards to meet the specific needs of their learners. They accordingly plan learning opportunities and activities by which these outcomes can be attained.

The activities in this programme comprise

  • general activities that are aimed at stimulation of the basic components of development, the prerequisites for thinking and learning;
  • specific activities that can be applied in the various learning areas (Literacy, Mathematics and Life Skills).

The programme is divided into five modules . The tempo at which learners will complete the first four modules may be determined by the educator. The fifth module is an enrichment module that can be used at the discretion of the educator, but is not suitable for all learners. Each module incorporates all areas of development and reveals an increasing level of difficulty (i.e. it ranges from easy to difficult).

The learning area is indicated in the frame in the upper left-hand corner of each worksheet, while the prerequisite for thinking and learning is indicated in the frame on the right. Specific questions for bridging and assessment are provided at the bottom of the worksheet.


The assessment standards related to the learning content of each module, together with the relevant learning outcomes, are indicated in the module framework of each module, as well as at the beginning of each learning unit. Hereby the educator, as well as the learner and his/her parents, can know what the standards are according to which the continuous assessment of the learner takes place. Each activity and assignment in a learning unit can be assessed. The average mark for the activity that is relevant to each learning outcome is then indicated on the assessment grid, which will indicate the learner’s capability profile at the end of each learning unit.

Assessment takes place according to a 4-point scale :

  1. does not complies with the requirements;
  2. complies impart with the requirements;
  3. complies with the requirements;
  4. exceeds the requirements.

An assessment frame that indicates the learning area as well as the learning outcome is included at the top of each worksheet (see the example that follows). This means that the activity must be evaluated according to the relevant learning outcome. The educator must assess the learner’s response and mark it according to the 4-point scale.


Mathematics: LO 1

An assessment rubric for each of the three learning areas, namely Literacy, Mathematics and Life Skills, is included at the end of each module. The educator considers the results from the preceding assessment frames and indicates an average for the learner’s achievement over the longer period on the assessment rubric.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

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.
