Describe physical, intellectual, emotional and social development throughout life stages (P1) Life stages Physical development Intellectual development Emotional development Social development Conception is the fertilization of the egg by the sperm and its implantation in the uterine wall Innate reflex, growth. Cellular development Pregnancy is the state of being pregnant; the period from conception to birth when a woman carries a developing fetus in her uterus Physical development takes place in the uterus were the embryo develops in to a fetus and the baby grows bigger, developing in growth at the same time as by the end of 8 weeks all major organs have developed but are continuing to grow in size. Birth and infantry Theses stages begin after the mother has given birth and is at stages 0-3 of a Childs life. This is the stage were the process of development of walking begins At birth stage the neonate's movements are random with no co-ordination with primitive reflexes, will use reflexes in a response to a stimulus such as touch and sound. After some months the infant will use voluntary movements. After the first month the child can hold their own head up for a few seconds were as after 10 months can support themselves in standing by balancing on nearby furniture and have developed motor skills such as use of picking up objects from one hand to the other.
G.C.S.E Science: Investigating the effect of Sucrose Concentration on the Rate of Osmosis in Potato Chips Sophie Chapman 25th March 2003 Aim: I shall carry out a sequence of independent experiments in order to investigate how the rate of osmosis in a potato chip is affected when the concentration of sucrose solution is varied. Apparatus: 300ml Sucrose concentration 300ml Distilled Water 2 x 100ml beaker 1 x 100ml Measuring Cylinder 1 x Potatoes 1 x Forceps (Tweezers) 1 x Scalpel Chipper 12 x Polystyrene Cups 1 x Stop - clock Tissues 12 x Sticky Labels 1 x Pen 1 x Calculator 1 x Ruler (measuring mm) 1 x Balance 1 x Polythene Food Bag Cardboard Apparatus Justification: To complete the experiment, I need 300ml distilled water and 300ml sucrose concentration as I intend to carry out 12 tests (using 6 different volumes but each shall be repeated twice) each using a 100ml of liquid whether it be pure water, pure sucrose concentration or a solution containing both. I will detail about the exact volumes of water and sucrose concentration that I want to use in each experiment, in the written procedure. I shall use varied amounts of sucrose solution for each test in order to adjust the concentration - a solution containing more sucrose has a greater concentration than a solution containing less sucrose solution. It is essential that the concentrations be
Abortion and Ethics Ethics of Abortion: Is it Moral or Immoral to Have an Abortion? Abortion is a Serious Ethical Issue: Usually debates about abortion focus on politics and the law: should abortion be outlawed and treated like the murder of a human person, or remain a legal choice available to all women? Behind the debates are more fundamental ethical questions which aren't always given the specific attention they deserve. Some believe that the law shouldn't legislate morality, but all good law is based upon moral values. A failure to openly discuss those values can obscure important discussions. Is the Fetus a Person with Rights?: Much debate about the legality of abortion involves debating the legal status of the fetus. If the fetus is a person, anti-choice activists argue, then abortion is murder and should be illegal. Even if the fetus is a person, though, abortion may justified as necessary to women's bodily autonomy - but that wouldn't mean that abortion is automatically ethical. Perhaps the state can't force women to carry pregnancies to term, but it could argue that it is the most ethical choice. Does the Woman have Ethical Obligations to the Fetus?: If a woman consented to sex and/or didn't properly use contraception, then she knew that pregnancy might result. Being pregnant means having a new life growing inside. Whether the fetus is a person or not, and
Biology coursework planning - the effect of lead chloride on the growth of cress seeds Aim: To investigate the effect of different concentrations of a heavy metal chloride, namely lead chloride, on the growth of cress seeds. Introduction: Heavy metals compounds, such as lead chloride are able to dissolve in rain and enter the soils surrounding plants. Some sources of such compounds are exhaust fumes from vehicles, additives in gasoline and paints, fertilisers and mining. Lead chloride is able to accumulate in the soil at sufficient concentrations and is easily absorbed by plants. For plants, lead is a toxin and when present in significant amounts, can cause severe decreases in their growth as well as death. The toxicity of heavy metals is seen as the irregularities in the normal functioning of the plant rather than direct toxicity to plant cells. Symptoms include stunted growth and the yellowing of plants (called chlorosis). Heavy metals collect in different organs of a plant and produce variable effects. Lead disrupts the plant's plasma membrane structure as well as permeability (proteins in the membrane), osmotic balance (the intake of water and ions) and indirectly, plant metabolism (the availability of nutrients for chemical reactions.) These factors are discussed below in further detail. The root cells of a plant carry proteins called chelates in their cell
By Kamran Adnan Transactional Websites A transactional website is one that allows visitors to buy goods or services online and also pay for them online. The most common type of transactional websites offer goods such as books, electronics, and food. However there are also websites that offer other type of goods and services such as travelling tickets, downloadable games/software or online movies. In most cases these websites were created by large companies and supermarket chains, whereas there are also some where the general public can sell their own goods. Examples for this are Play.com and Amazon.com. My Transactional Website (LatestDVD9) The transactional website that I have chosen to investigate is LatestDVD9.com. This is a website that sells a variety of movies on DVDs. The website sells only movies on DVDs including mainly Hollywood and also a few Bollywood movies. It is a very popular DVD selling website because customers can find almost every Hollywood movie they are looking for, no matter how old it is. There are even movies available that came out more than 65 years ago. Purpose As the name of the website tells it, its purpose is mainly to sell DVDs. The website is to sell the latest films that have just come out in cinemas on DVDs and sell these mainly in the United States. However in the FAQs it is written that the website also sells across the world to
Introduction & Method At the beginning of the experiment, I put on a lab coat to protect myself from any danger that may occur. I made sure that all my equipments were clean and dry before I started, and I also measured the temperature of the room to confirm it was around room temperature. I then made sure that the ice cube tray was clean, I put a little label on one end of the tray to indicate my starting point row of the ice cube tray. I then made a little note to myself that the label indicated the row which will contain the 0.0% x 10-3 concentration of nitrate in the solution, and the rows onwards will contain the concentration of nitrogen in solution in ascending orders which I will use (0.0, 0.4, 0.8, 1.2, 1.6 and 2.4 % x 10-3). I Whilst pouring the solutions into a glass beaker I put on goggles and gloves to protect my eyes and hands from any contacts with the ammonium nitrate solution, as any contact can lead to irritation of the skin and eye. I poured 80-90cm3 of the 1st concentration which contained 0.0% x 10-3 of nitrate into a 100cm3 glass beaker. Next I used a clean syringe to measure out 25cm3 of the solution into the 1st well (near my label). The tray had 3 wells in a row and there were 6 rows, I repeatedly added 25 cm3 of the same ammonium nitrate solution into the remaining two wells of that row, so that I will obtain a result of three replicates with each

They emulate scenarios that children can identify with, more specifically the relationships between the students and their teachers/head teachers. As a result the language used
Unit 5-The principles underpinning the role of the Practitioner working with children Section 1 E1 Practitioners have the responsibility to maintain a professional relationship with children, families, colleagues and other professionals in a range of settings. When working in early years setting you will be expected to work with other professionals that may be on the same site as yourself or from the community where they will be required to come into your setting. For example if a practitioner is working in a children's centre a speech therapist may work on the same site but is you work on a small rural nursery the therapist may visit your setting regularly when required. When working as an early year's practitioner there will be codes of practice that underpin your practice. These will state how you as a professional are expected to conduct yourself within your role. Codes of practice are not the law but are set out by the employer for all employees to comply with within the setting, and will be relevant to pieces of legislation. Your employer will guide you through the codes of practice set out and they will also be available in your staff handbook. Codes of practice should be referred to and reflected upon frequently as a matter of good practice and to improve your own learning and performance. For example working in childcare you will find codes of practice related
Sofia Gaggiotti Chemistry coursework: Deducing the quantity of acid in a solution 20/03/2008 Index Aim and Background information 3 Hazards 3 Protection 4 Method 5 Previous calculations 5 Making the Solution 6 Equipment needed 6 Quantities of materials needed 8 Procedure 8 Making the Titration 9 Equipment needed 10 Procedure 13 References 15 Results and calculations 16 Evaluation 19 Chemistry coursework: Deducing the quantity of acid in a solution Aim and background information The aim of this experiment is to find how to develop and determine an accurate, precise and reliable concentration of an acid rain solution. 1 To do this, we are going to make first a solution of sodium carbonate with distilled water and then a titration in order to calculate the concentration of sulphuric acid in a solution. Solution: a solution is a homogeneous mixture composed of two or more substances. In this mixture, a solute is dissolved in a solvent. Solutions are characterized by interactions between the solvent phase and solute molecules or ions that result in a net decrease in free energy. 2 Titration: a titration is a laboratory technique by which we can determine the concentration of an unknown reagent using another reagent that chemically reacts with the unknown. At the equivalence point (or endpoint) the unknown reagent has been reacted with the known reagent.
McDonald's INTRODUCTION TO McDonald's Mission Statement Mc Donald's vision is to be the UK's biggest, best quick service restaurant experience. Since McDonald's opened its first restaurant in the UK in October 1974, the Golden Arches have become a familiar symbol, now seen on high streets, alongside major roads, on cross channel ferries, in leisure and retail parks and at airports. During 2000, the company bought young people from communities all over the UK to perform on stage at the Dome in Greenwich as part of McDonald's Our Town Story. This explains the History of McDonalds. By the end of 2000, there were 1,116 McDonald's restaurant operating in the UK, representing a total investment in property and equipment of over £1.5 billion. The company employed just fewer than 50,000 people and 18,000 were employed by McDonald's franchises. Today, more than 2.5 million people in this country place their trust in McDonalds every day - trusting the Company to provide them with food of a high standard, quick service and value for money. E1 CLEARLY IDENTIFYING MANAGEMENT FUNCTIONS AND THEIR APLLICATION TO THE BUSINESS A restaurant manager makes sure that customers can come into the restaurant and enjoy the quality food and service they have come to expect from McDonald's. This takes in everything from the welfare of staff through to the performance of the restaurant
