8.2 Evidence

The purpose of the evidence you present is to show you can use different ways to learn. This means your example could be an assignment, project report, video recording, etc. that includes activities where you have taken responsibility for when and how you learned, perhaps as part of a distance-learning course (independent learning), and work you have learned using a different approach, perhaps by attending a tutorial, seminar, taking part in an e-conference, workshop, training session with a

Learning outcomes

After studying this unit you should be able to:

  • demonstrate an understanding of how shared histories of places and spaces could be an important resource to any caring relationship;

  • identify ways in which the environment can become a resource for caring;

  • appreciate the importance of personal control over changes of place in relation to how people cope and adjust.

The Graeco-Roman city of Paestum
What can archaeological remains tell us about early cities and the people who lived in them? This album examines the important remains of one city, Poseidonia in Italy, founded towards the end of the 7th century BCE by colonists from the Greek city of Sybaris. Although only twenty-five per cent of the site has been excavated to date, much of its history and culture can be traced through its buildings, inscriptions, and decoration. After it became a colony of Rome in 273 BCE, it became known a

1.2.2 Content

School mathematics curricula often focus on lists of content objectives in areas like number, arithmetic, statistics, measurement, geometry, trigonometry, and algebra. A typical list of content objectives might contain over one hundred objectives to be introduced or revisited and learned each year. These can be seen as hierarchical in nature but many textbooks do not attempt to organise the objectives in ways that enable the bigger underpinning ideas to become apparent to the pupils. In addit

1.1 A shared understanding

All representations (including graphical ones) rely on shared understandings of symbols and styles to convey meaning. Like maps, graphical representations stress some features and ignore others. As you work through this Unit, bear in mind that graphs are selective representations of information. When you come across different graphs ask yourself what is being stressed and what is being ignored.

In the newspapers, you are likely to find graphs used to present all sorts of information: ho

Introduction

Learning how to learn is a process in which we all engage throughout our lives, although often we do not realise that we are, in fact, learning how to learn. Most of the time we concentrate on what we are learning rather than how we are learning it. In this unit, we aim to make the process of learning much more explicit by inviting you to apply the various ideas and activities to your own current or recent study as a way of increasing your awareness of your own learning.

1.2 BSE

In December 1984, it was noticed that a cow on a Sussex farm was displaying head tremors and loss of coordination. The animal died in February 1985. The vet regarded this case as sufficiently serious for a post-mortem examination to be necessary. In September 1985, a government pathologist confirmed that the cause of its death was a type of disease known as a spongiform encephalopathy. Spongiform encephalopathies (i.e. 'spongy brain diseases') are so called because, on post-mortem exam

4.2 Using images to good effect

The following are the main types of image.

  • Pictures. These include photographs, drawings and cartoons.

  • Diagrams. These include maps and other representations of relationships between objects, such as family trees and Venn diagrams. Some writers classify maps as charts. We have chosen not to do this.

  • Graphs and charts. These are visual representations of numbers. Thus, they include pie charts, h

Summary of Section 7

  1. Packaging of DNA serves to protect against damage, to compact the DNA helix into a suitable size within the cell, and to act as both a platform for and an intrinsic part of the structural and regulatory machinery involved in DNA metabolism.

  2. DNA compaction in prokaryotes achieved through a combination of supercoiling and interactions with proteins that aid DNA bending.

  3. Compaction of the eubacterial chromosome is facilitated

4 Performance skills

Performance skills are those aspects that set dancing apart from mechanical movement. Often, our attention is drawn to the dancer who is using a range of performance skills effectively, because they stand out from the rest.

Performance skills are aspects such as:

  • focus;

  • projection;

  • musicality;

  • timing;

  • emphasis;

  • expression.

All of these aspects are connected
