Grade 9

Fun at the fair

Module 3

Asking and answering

Activity 1:

Asking and answering

[lo 4.2.4]

Are you able to ask for information politely?

Are you polite and friendly when making enquiries?

1. Write down two questions that Marcus might have asked the Fair Committee when he decided to display his goods.

2. Give the answers of the Chairman of the Committee . . .

  • agreeing to let Marcus go ahead.
  • refusing to let Marcus go ahead.

Agreeing:

Disagreeing:

3. Imagine you are bartering some items in exchange for others.

In play-form, write down suitable, relevant questions and answers.

4. Marcus started making enquiries in his town about selling his product.

What are some of the enquiries he might have made?

5. Marcus needed some important information before he set up his stalls. Write down three questions he was likely to ask his uncle.

Now that you have heard some of the questions that your fellow classmates have asked, do you notice what tense and what tone of voice are used.

Activity 2:

Writing and performing short plays

[lo 2.4.7]

Work out some short plays and present them orally, where you are . . .

1. asking simple questions + receiving replies from another person,e.g. an office situation / a playground situation / a home situation.

2. making enquiries + receiving a satisfactory / unsatisfactory reply

3. asking permission to attend a party and receiving permission under certain conditions/ receiving a refusal.

4. asking directions and receiving a clear / an unclear answer. You will realise that you can ask any question you like but that there is a polite way of doing this. This skill can be used wherever you are – especially when you are on holiday or if you are lost. Practise it daily until it becomes habit.

Activity 3:

Giving instructions

[lo 1.3.2]

Now play a few short games:

1 Give instructions on how to use a simple household / kitchen item, without actually producing it to see whether the class can guess what it is.

2 Let the class roughly draw a few squares about 4 centimetres square.

The learner in front will have a picture in the square to describe to the class, without repeating himself AND without using his hands. If the class manages to draw it accurately, then the instructions have been clear.

Activity 4:

Writing a narrative essay

Select a character from History and write an imaginative narrative essay about him and an important moment in his life (you can, of course, also choose a young girl). You do not need to write about his whole life history – just about a moment in time or the experiences of a few days or a few weeks.

You will need to do a bit of research to find out details of the period in which s/he lived so that your facts are convincing e.g. a boy living during the Apartheid years who wanted to study but could find no institution that would accept him; a boy living on Robben Island in the leper colony that used to be there; a young girl travelling with her parents on the Groot Trek . . . or choose a character from European or American History . . .

College algebra is really hard?
Shirleen Reply
Absolutely, for me. My problems with math started in First grade...involving a nun Sister Anastasia, bad vision, talking & getting expelled from Catholic school. When it comes to math I just can't focus and all I can hear is our family silverware banging and clanging on the pink Formica table.

The given of f(x=x-2. then what is the value of this f(3) 5f(x+1)
virgelyn Reply
hmm well what is the answer
Abhi
If f(x) = x-2 then, f(3) when 5f(x+1) 5((3-2)+1) 5(1+1) 5(2) 10

Sheref
can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
ninjadapaul
20/(×-6^2)
Salomon
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
ninjadapaul
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
ninjadapaul
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
Salomon
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
Salomon
I got X =-6
Salomon
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
ninjadapaul
oops. ignore that.
ninjadapaul
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
ninjadapaul
hmm
Abhi
is it a question of log

why surface tension is zero at critical temperature
Shanjida
I think if critical temperature denote high temperature then a liquid stats boils that time the water stats to evaporate so some moles of h2o to up and due to high temp the bonding break they have low density so it can be a reason
