Activity 1 (individual / group work)


  • After the reading assignment learners must answer the following questions individually:
  • What subculture do you belong to? Provide reasons for your answer.
  • What type of music does your subculture listen to? Name examples.
  • Does your subculture wear any specific clothing, jewellery, or hairstyles? Name a few examples.
  • Which brand names are associated with your subculture? Name them.
  • The learners must exchange the following information in groups in order to complete the table. If they all belong to the same subculture, they must do research on other subcultures, so as to bring about variety in the table.
Subculture Music Dance(s) Visual Art Clothing

After the completion of the table the learners receive a homework assignment: an essay of 200 to 250 words (pictures and / or illustrations are not compulsory, but recommended) on the following topic:


Activity 2 (individual)


Requirements: A4-paper/ pencil/colourpencils or colour-ink/ [optional: old T-shirt (preferably white)]/ material paint or –ink/ brushes

Follow the learning module


  • The organisation of the classroom is of vital importance to the successful presentation of visual art. In contrast to other art forms like Drama, Dance and Music, Visual Art always works with materials for drawing, painting or sculpting.
  • Since waste materials are often used to cut down on costs, it would be wise to start holding collection days early in the academic year. Learners and staff could be asked, for instance, to bring waste materials to school every Monday – empty toilet rolls the one week, bottle caps the next, plastic containers, tins / cans, etc. These materials can be placed in different containers in the classroom, or stored elsewhere until needed.


Natural colouring agents from vegetables and plants
Clay from clayey soil
Seeds, leaves, bark, wood, shells, etc.
Driftwood, waste wood - good for carving
Paper: Used computer paper or A4 waste paper [with one clean side]
Beads, buttons, thread
Make your own paper from waste: use for designing papier mâché objects, heads for puppets, artistic paper, etc.
The old plans of architects and engineers [with one clean surface] - ask around - most of these plans go to waste suppliers.
Phone around for any free waste paper and cut-offs from paper suppliers, printing houses, packaging companies and newspaper publishers - use old phone directories - look in the Yellow Pages, or ask learners whether their parents might have contacts, or work for any of these companies or factories.
Collect coloured waste paper and cardboard packaging, corrugated cardboard, old magazines, posters, packages, boxes, cardboard tubes - ideal for making collages and dolls / puppets.
Any waste paper or cardboard containers and packets can be used for three-dimensional projects, etc.
Any coloured or patterned materials and string, wire, metals.
Old machinery [ideal for drawing or to make sculptures with].
Ask members of your school community whether they have access to any serviceable donations and sources of waste products.

Remember that assessment must also cultivate values and attitudes in learners. When the learner knows that aspects like caring for art materials are also assessed, it will gradually instil a respect for these materials, as well as for the usefulness and recycling of waste materials.

Over-arching activity

To integrate the content of the four learning areas you can now present a performance where the rap of Learning Unit 1 is combined with the movement of Learning Unit 3, the characters of Learning Unit 2 and the T-shirt or clothing of Learning Unit 4.

Encourage the learners to be original in an effort to combine the four disciplines meaningfully in ONE presentation of five minutes.

Questions & Answers

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?

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

Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...

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
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?
