**Sub-Theme: Safety**

**WEEK 2**

**First aid II**

**Performance objectives**

Students should be able to:

- Discuss the ABC of first aid and its application

**Content**

**ABC of first aid**

The priorities of first aid are

**A AIRWAY **

**B BREATHING **

**C CIRCULATION (and bleeding) **

Only then look at burns and broken bones.

**A- Airway**

The airway of an unconscious person may be narrowed or blocked, making breathing difficult and noisy or impossible. This happens when the tongue drops back and blocks the throat. Lifting the chin and tilting the head back lifts the tongue away from the entrance to the air passage. Place two fingers under the point of the person’s chin and lift the jaw, while placing your other hand on the forehead and tilting the head well back. If you think the neck may be injured, tilt the head very carefully, just enough to open the airway.

**B Breathing**

Check for breathing by placing your head near the person’s nose and mouth. Feel for breath on your cheek or moisture on the back of your hand.

**FIRST THINGS FIRST**

In an emergency any number of things may need your attention at the same time. If you try to do everything at once you may easily get distracted from the essential matters. On arriving at the scene…

**Assess the situation**

- Take in quickly what has happened.
- Look for dangers to yourself and to the casualty
- Make the area safe

**Assess casualties**

- An unconscious person always takes priority and needs immediate help to make sure he or she can breathe

Only then should you begin to assess any injuries

If a person has just stopped breathing use mouth to mouth ventilation. Make sure the airway is open and head tilted back. Pinch the nostrils together, take a deep breath and blow into the mouth, firmly sealing your lips around the mouth so air is not lost. You should see the chest rise.

Remove your lips and let the chest fall. Continue this, giving about ten breaths every minute until help arrives or breathing begins.

**C Circulation**

Check for circulation (to see if the heart is still beating) by feeling for the Adam’s apple (lump on the windpipe) with two fingers. Slide the fingers to the side of the windpipe and feel for the pulse. If the heart has stopped beating, use chest compression to try to restart the heart. Place your hand flat just above the point where the ribs meet the breastbone. Bring the other hand on top of it and lock your fingers together. With your arms straight, press down firmly on the breastbone, pushing it down by 4–5 cm. Release the pressure and repeat the compressions at a rate of about 80 per minute. If the person is also not breathing, alternate 15 compressions with two breaths until help arrives.

Stop bleeding by applying firm pressure to the wound for about 15 minutes. Never use a tourniquet.

**The Recovery Position**

This is the best position for an unconscious person or someone having a fit. It allows them to breathe easily and prevents them from choking. After checking the ABC, bend the nearest arm to you, putting the hand by the head. Then bring the far arm across the chest and hold both hands in one of yours. With your other hand pull the furthest leg up at the knee and roll the person towards you to lie in this position.

** ****WEEK 6**

**Materials and their common use II**

**Performance objectives**

Students should be able to:

- State the common uses of ceramics and glass.
- State the uses of plastics.

**Content**

**Uses of ceramics**

Due to the fact that ceramics can withstand very high temperature, they are used in making furnace. A furnace is a structure or apparatus in which a lot of heat is generated. While the water in kettle boils at 100^{}c, iron melts at 1536^{}c. Ceramics can withstand even higher temperature.

Ceramics can carry heavy loads and as a result of this property, we use brick and cement block to build houses. The wall of any building carries the roof of the building, the top floor, people and decoration.

Most electric poles are made from concrete which is a type of ceramic. The insulator between the lines is also ceramic. Other ceramic are the wind screen of vehicles, ordinary looking glass, television screens and ashtrays.

A modern toilet is built entirely with ceramics. The walls are made from concrete blocks which are ceramics. The walls are made from concrete blocks, which are ceramics, while the tiles, sinks, bath and toilet bowls are all made of ceramics.

**Uses of glass**

It is clear that modern life would not be possible without glass!

Glass is used in the making of the following products:

- Packaging (jars for food, bottles for drinks, flacon for cosmetics and pharmaceuticals)
- Tableware (drinking glasses, plate, cups, bowls)
- Housing and buildings (windows, facades, conservatory, insulation, reinforcement structures)
- Interior design and furniture (mirrors, partitions, balustrades, tables, shelves, lighting)
- Appliances and Electronics (oven doors, cook top, TV, computer screens, smart-phones)
- Automotive and transport (windscreens, backlights, light weight but reinforced structural components of cars, aircrafts, ships, etc.)
- Medical technology, biotechnology, life science engineering, optical glass
- Radiation protection from X-Rays (radiology) and gamma-rays (nuclear)
- Fiber optic cables (phones, TV, computer: to carry information

**Rubber**

Rubber is an elastic material that can be stretched but can return to its original state.

**Types of Rubber**

**Natural Rubber:**** **Natural rubber is obtained from the sap of rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis). When the rubber tree is tapped, the milky-white liquid obtained is called the rubber latex. Natural rubber can be improved upon by adding other chemical at high temperature. This process is called vulcanization.

**Synthetic Rubber:**** **This class of rubber is known as elastomers. They are produced from petroleum products. Synthetic rubber cannot be vulcanized.

**Uses of Rubber**

- Rubber can be used as shock dampers (absorbers) and as engine mounting.
- Rubber is used for making tubes and tyres.
- It is used for producing bathroom slippers.
- Rubber is used for water proofing.
- Rubber is used as electrical insulator.
- Products such as vee-belts, hoses, shoe heels and soles, tyres, footballs are all made from rubber.

**Plastics**

Plastics are produced from petroleum products known as monomers. When a great number of monomers are combined through chemical reactions, polymers are formed. It is this polymers that are referred to as plastics. The process of combining monomers is known as polymerization. The major component of plastic is resin. Resin is a material which softens and flows and can be moulded.

**Types of Plastics**

** Thermosetting**: This is the type of plastic produced from thermosetting resin. This type of plastic cannot be remoulded when exposed to heat. Examples are polyester, amino formaldehyde and Bakelite used for producing the handle of enamel pots and dishes.

** Thermoplastic**: These are plastics made from resin that does not set rigidly heating. They soften on heating and can be remoulded into other shapes e.g. plastic buckets

**Uses of Plastics**

- Plastics are used for dinnerware (dishes).
- Used for electric switchboxes and switches.
- Used for trays, cutlery, handles, brushes and baby dishes.
- Plastic is used for funnels, radio and television cabinets.
- Mobile phone casing, automobile accessories and spectacle (eye- glass frame
- Used for roofing sheets, refrigerator doors and air-conditioning housing.
- Plastic is used for electric iron and cooking pot handles.
- Used for containers for liquids, computer housing cases, ball-point pen casing.

**WEEK 8**

**Geometric construction II**

**Performance objectives**

Students should be able to:

- Use appropriate instrument to divide a circle into equal parts.
- Use appropriate instrument to draw a tangent and normal to a given circle and two equal circles

**Content**

**Geometric Construction**

What is geometric construction? It is the drawing of lines, angles, and shapes using only a pen or pencil, compass, and a straight edge. There are no numbers you have to deal with.

Why is this useful? It is useful when you have to draw lines and angles without measuring anything. And if you are an artist, this is a handy skill to have to ensure that any lines or angles that you copy are exactly the same.

**Tools Needed**

The only tools you will need to copy and construct any line segment or angle, along with your pen or pencil, are a compass and a straight edge. In today’s world, the most common straight edge is the ruler. But you can use anything that will give you a nice clean straight line when you take your pencil and run it along an edge. The compass is the mathematical tool that lets you draw nice clean circles and arcs; it’s not the compass that people use to navigate directions.

**Construction of circles**

To find the center of a given circle

- Mark 3 points A,B,C well spaced out on the circumference
- Bisect the chord between one pair of point (AB)
- Bisect the chord between the second pair of point BC the intersection at O is the centre of the circle.

To divide the circumference of a circle into a number of equal parts

- Using constant radius method ( to divide the circumference into equal parts)
- Draw the given circle with centre O
- Draw horizontal line AB across the circle (Diameter)
- With the radius of the circle and center A, describe an arc at C and D.
- With the same radius describe an arc E and F to cut the circumference of the circle. Thus divding the circumference into 6 parts

To divide the circumference into 8 parts, use 45^{} set squares as described above 60^{0 }or follow the following procedures.

- Draw the circle and draw the horizontal diameter AB
- Draw a vertical diameter CD to pass through the centre of the circle and across diameter AB at O.
- Bisect angle COB and COA, project the bisection line from G to H and from E to F. thus dividing the circle into 8 parts.

**Construction of the tangent of a circle**

**Steps:**

- Draw a line connecting the point to the center of the circle
- Construct the perpendicular bisector of that line
- Place the compass on the midpoint, adjust its length to reach the end point, and draw an arc across the circle
- Where the arc crosses the circle will be the tangent points.

**WEEK 9**

**Geometric construction III**

**Performance objectives**

Students should be able to:

- Identify define and construct various triangles
- Inscribe and circumcise circles to triangles

**Content**

**Triangles**

A triangle has three sides and three angles. It is a closed figure with three line segments as its boundary. These line segments are called sides. It has three corners called vertices. The symbol for a triangle is Δ

The three vertices are generally named by three consecutive alphabets such as A, B and C or X, Y and Z. A triangle with vertices A, B, and C is denoted by ΔABC.

Tri means three and so a Triangle has three angles. These angles are formed by two sides at each of the corners. The angle formed at the vertex A by the two sides AB and AC is called

The three sides and three angles of a triangle together are called the six parts or elements of the triangle.

Now look at the diagram below

The side BC is opposite to vertex A and is also denoted in short by “a”. The sides opposite to B and C are written as b and c. Thus sides BC= a, AC= b and AB= c

**Properties of a triangle**

- The sum of the three angles of any triangle is always 180 degree.
- Any angle of a triangle is always greater than zero and less than 180°
- Not more than one angle can be 90° or more.
- The sum of length of any two sides will always be greater than the length of the third side.
- It is a closed plain figure.

**Types of Triangles**

A triangle can be classified by either its sides: or its angle.

**(A) A triangle is classified in three types as scalene, isosceles, or equilateral triangle based on its sides.**

**Equilateral triangle**

A triangle having all sides equal is called an equilateral triangle. It’s all angles are also equal. As sum of three angles of a triangle is 180°, so each angle of an equilateral triangle is 60°.

**Isosceles triangle**

A triangle having two sides equal is called an isosceles triangle. The angles opposite to equal sides are also equal.

**Scalene triangle**

A triangle having all sides of different length is called scalene triangle.

In the figure above, the sides a≠ b≠ c . Hence this is a scalene triangle.

**(B) A triangle is classified in three types as acute, right, or obtuse triangle based on its angles:**

**Acute triangle**

A triangle having all angles less than 90° is called acute triangle.

In the above triangle, the three angles are 50°, 60° and 70°. All three are less than 90°. Hence it is an acute triangle.

**Obtuse triangle**

A triangle having one angle more than 90° is called an obtuse triangle.

In the triangle above, the three angles are 25°, 35° and 120°. One of angle is more than 90°. Hence it is an obtuse triangle.

**Right triangle**

If anyone angle of a triangle is 90° , the triangle is called right triangle. The triangle below is a right angle triangle as

The side opposite to the right angle is called the hypotenuse** .** The hypotenuse is larger than the other two sides. In diagram above, the AB is the hypotenuse and is opposite to the right angle

**Inscribed and Circumscribed Circles of Triangles**

Given a triangle, an **inscribed**** circle** is the largest circle contained within the triangle. The inscribed circle will touch each of the three sides of the triangle in exactly one point. The center of the circle inscribed in a triangle is the

**of the triangle, the point where the angle bisectors of the triangle meet.**

**incenter**To construct the **inscribed circle**

- Construct the incenter.
- Construct a line perpendicular to one side of the triangle that passes through the incenter. The segment connecting the incenter with the point of intersection of the triangle and the perpendicular line is the radius of the circle.
- Construct a circle centered at the incenter with the radius found in step 2.

The steps for constructing the inscribed circle for a given triangle will be explored in the problems below.

Given a triangle, the circumscribed** **circle is the circle that passes through all three vertices of the triangle. The center of the circumscribed circle is the

**of the triangle, the point where the perpendicular bisectors of the sides meet.**

**circumcenter**To construct the circumscribed circle

- Construct the circumcenter.
- Construct a circle centered at the circumcenter that passes through one of the vertices. This same circle should pass through all three vertices
*.*

**WEEK 10**

**Geometric construction IV**

**Performance objectives**

Students should be able to:

- Define identify and construct regular and irregular polygon

**Content**

**Polygon**

A closed plane figure made up of several line segments that are joined together. The sides do not cross each other. Exactly two sides meet at every vertex.

There are two main types of polygon – regular and irregular.

A regular polygon has equal length sides with equal angles between each side. Any other polygon is an irregular polygon, which by definition has unequal length sides and unequal angles between sides.

**Pentagon**** : **The closed figure which is formed by five straight lines is known as a pentagon.

**Hexagon**** : **The six-sided polygon is known as a hexagon.

**Heptagon**** : **The polygon with seven sides is termed as a heptagon.

**Octagon**** : **As the name says, the Eight-sided polygon is known as Octagon.

**Nonagon**** : **The polygon which possesses nine straight lines is known as nonagon.

**Decagon**** : **The closed figure made with ten straight lines is termed as decagon polygon.
