Activity: another type of data [lo 3.8, lo 5.9, lo 1.8]


16.1 Did you know?

We can collect data or find information by plotting given co-ordinates on a grid.

Look carefully at the example.

The dot (l) is at (4,7).

The 4 indicates the horizontal number and the 7 indicates the vertical number.

16.2 Plot the following on the island.

16.3 Write down the co-ordinates for the route that a group of learners followed during a recent fun-run.












  • Write your own secret message. Give the co-ordinates to a friend to decipher your message.











  • Let your friend write your message here:




17. Did you know?

17.1 Sometimes co-ordinates are combined with compass directions to find a certain place

You find the airport at 3W; 3N. (W = West; N = North)

17.2 Where will you find the following places?

a) Zoo ___________________________________________________________

b) Library ________________________________________________________

c) Shopping centre _________________________________________________

d) Park __________________________________________________________

e) Bus stop _______________________________________________________

f) Public swimming pool ____________________________________________

g) Station _________________________________________________________

h) Golf course _____________________________________________________

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 performs mental calculations involving squares of natural numbers to at least 10 ² and cubes of natural numbers to at least 5 ³ .

Learning Outcome 3: The learner will be able to describe and represent characteristics and relationships between two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional objects in a variety of orientations and positions.

Assessment Standard 3.8: We know this when the learner locates positions on co-ordinate systems (ordered grids) and maps.

Learning Outcome 5: The learner will be able to collect, summarise, display and critically analyse data in order to draw conclusions and make predictions, and to interpret and determine chance variation.

Assessment Standard 5.9: We know this when the learner critically reads and interprets data presented in a variety of ways to draw conclusions and make predictions sensitive.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
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.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
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.

Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
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.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
