## Memorandum

It will probably only be learners in the first group who will progress as far as this module. Do not discourage learners who want to do this module. Even if they can only do a few of the activities they must be given the opportunity to do so. This must be handled carefully so that learners are not discouraged or feel inferior towards other learners. Neither must they develop negative attitudes towards Mathematics.

• Number concept to 2 000
• Operations: Consolidation and reinforcement of all the operations in previous modules.

A considerable amount of advanced and enrichment work is included and the educator must be familiar with each activity before the learners are expected to complete them.

In Module 8 number concept is extended to 2 000 . All operations are revised and consolidated. Several enrichment and challenging activities are included in this module and should only be given to learners who can manage them and who enjoy challenges. This selection process must be handled carefully and the other learners must not be discouraged or feel inferior towards other learners or the subject Mathematics.

A thorough discussion and explanation of the map on p. 3 as well as the table of distances on p. 4 should help learners complete these worksheets.

Number concept is extended to 2 000.

This is consolidation of the operations as in the previous modules. It offers an opportunity to identify problem areas.

These are to determine to what extent the learners’ logical thought processes have developed and to test and consolidate the basic work.

Telling the time on digital clocks/watches should only be done with learners who have mastered the telling of time on ordinary (analogue) clocks/watches. They need much practice in telling the time on ordinary clocks/watches and the corresponding time on digital clocks/watches before completing the worksheets.

Give the learners the opportunity to do these problems without help so that their progress can be determined.

Show examples and discuss ethnic patterns with the learners. Encourage them to bring examples to school and to share these with the class.

Use this for assessment purposes.

This is enrichment work and the educator should study this work first and then decide which of these worksheets should be used for which learners.

All learners who have progressed to Module 8 should be able to complete these worksheets with ease.

Do this activity practically in the classroom and let several learners explain what they see in front of them when walking behind someone. Let three learners stand next to one another and let the other learners stand in front of them. They must walk around the three standing in a line and observe them from behind so that they can discover that the order from left to right has changed.

Not much explanation is needed here as this activity is similar to the one where they used the table of distances.

## Activity: mass and height [lo 1.8, lo 1.9, lo 2.5]

Here is Bonny and Tommy’s tower of sand. The mass of each cup of sand is 200 g and the height of each is 6 cm .

• Complete:
• How many cups of sand did they use to build the tower? _____________
• What is the total mass of the tower? _________ g = ____________ kg
• How many cups of sand were needed to build a tower with a mass of 3 kg?

_____________________________________________________________________

• What is the total height of the tower? __________ cm = ____________ m
• How many cups of sand were needed to build a tower with a height of 1,02 m?

_____________________________________________________________________

• Which do you think has the greater mass, a cup of dry sand or a cup of wet sand? Give your reason.
• Complete the starfish:

• Draw at least two starfish and decorate them with ethnic patterns. Remember that all five arms of a starfish are identical.
• Complete:
• Bonny picked up 93 shells and wants to put the same amount into four buckets. How many will she put into each bucket and how many will be left over?

## Assessment

Learning Outcome 1: The learner will be able to recognise, describe and represent numbers and their relationships, and to count, estimate, calculate and check with competence and confidence in solving problems.

Assessment Standard 1.8: We know this when the learner can perform calculations, using appropriate symbols, to solve problems;

Assessment Standard 1.9: We know this when the learner performs mental calculations;

Learning Outcome 2: The learner will be able to recognise, describe and represent patterns and relationships, as well as to solve problems using algebraic language and skills.

Assessment Standard 2.5: We know this when the learner identifies, describes and copies geometric patterns in natural and cultural artefacts of different cultures and times.

how can chip be made from sand
is this allso about nanoscale material
Almas
are nano particles real
yeah
Joseph
Hello, if I study Physics teacher in bachelor, can I study Nanotechnology in master?
no can't
Lohitha
where is the latest information on a no technology how can I find it
William
currently
William
where we get a research paper on Nano chemistry....?
nanopartical of organic/inorganic / physical chemistry , pdf / thesis / review
Ali
what are the products of Nano chemistry?
There are lots of products of nano chemistry... Like nano coatings.....carbon fiber.. And lots of others..
learn
Even nanotechnology is pretty much all about chemistry... Its the chemistry on quantum or atomic level

no nanotechnology is also a part of physics and maths it requires angle formulas and some pressure regarding concepts

what is variations in raman spectra for nanomaterials
ya I also want to know the raman spectra
Bhagvanji
I only see partial conversation and what's the question here!
what about nanotechnology for water purification
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
Professor
I think
Professor
Nasa has use it in the 60's, copper as water purification in the moon travel.

what is the stm
is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
Damian
How we are making nano material?
what is a peer
What is meant by 'nano scale'?
What is STMs full form?

what is simplest way to understand the applications of nano robots used to detect the cancer affected cell of human body.? How this robot is carried to required site of body cell.? what will be the carrier material and how can be detected that correct delivery of drug is done Rafiq
Rafiq
if virus is killing to make ARTIFICIAL DNA OF GRAPHENE FOR KILLED THE VIRUS .THIS IS OUR ASSUMPTION
Anam
analytical skills graphene is prepared to kill any type viruses .
Anam
Any one who tell me about Preparation and application of Nanomaterial for drug Delivery
Hafiz
what is Nano technology ?
write examples of Nano molecule?
Bob
The nanotechnology is as new science, to scale nanometric
brayan
nanotechnology is the study, desing, synthesis, manipulation and application of materials and functional systems through control of matter at nanoscale
