Mathematics in the world around us

Memorandum

Critical and developmental outcomes:

The learners must be able to:

1. identify and solve problems and make decisions using critical and creative thinking;

2. work effectively with others as members of a team, group, organisation and community;

3. organise and manage themselves and their activities responsibly and effectively;

4. collect, analyse, organise and critically evaluate information;

5. communicate effectively using visual, symbolic and/or language skills in various modes;

6. use science and technology effectively and critically, showing responsibility towards the environment and the health of others;

6. demonstrate an understanding of the world as a set of related systems by recognising that problem-solving contexts do not exist in isolation;

7. reflect on and explore a variety of strategies to learn more effectively;

8. participate as responsible citizens in the life of local, national, and global communities;

9. be culturally and aesthetically sensitive across a range of social contexts;

10. explore education and career opportunities; and

develop entrepreneurial opportunities.

  • Integration of Themes:
  • Social justice: The story of the secret signs shows how history can be important. What are the advantages of knowing things about the past?

Learners can divide into groups, visit the library and do more research on the origin of our number system, the Roman numerals, etc.

Learners can do projects on Mathematics found in nature, in the classroom and in the home. They learn to work together in a team, listen to one another and to share ideas.

Discuss whether so called “bargains” are always bargains. What is your attitude towards “sales” in shops? Is it always necessary to give / receive birthday presents? Why do you give presents? When would not giving presents be acceptable?

  • With the inclusion of the story of the secret sign at this stage, learners are able to understand the significance of the “0” as “place holder” (indegrated with Literacy).
  • The patterns with addition and subtraction of 6, 7, 8 and 9 are emphasised.
  • Telling the time in minutes become easy as learners count the minutes in 5’s.
  • Codes are used to find the answer to a puzzle.
  • As preparation for the Christmas celebrations, the month of December is used for activities involving the calendar.
  • Module 8 concludes with a game where crackers with number sentences are matched to lights on the Christmas tree.

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 1.1: We know this when the learner counts to at least 100 everyday objects reliably;

Assessment Standard 1.2: We know this when the learner counts forwards and backwards in:

1.2.1 ones from any number between 0 and 200;

1.2.2 tens from any multiple of 10 between 0 and 200;

1.2.3 fives from any multiple of 5 between 0 and 200;

1.2.4 twos from any multiple of 2 between 0 and 200;

Assessment Standard 1.3: We know this when the learner knows and reads number symbols from 1 to at least 200 and writes number names from 1 to at least 100;

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

Learning Outcome 4: The learner will be able to use appropriate measuring units, instruments and formulae in a variety of contexts.

Assessment Standard 4.2: We know this when the learner names in order the days of the week and the months of the year.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

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.
