1.1 K-S 50 km
S-C 60 km
C-S 70 km
S-H 70 km
H-R 20 km
R-M 35 km
1.2 ± 275 km
275 km ÷ 9 km = 30,35 = ± 30,5 ℓ
1.3 30,5 × R 5,80 = R 176,90
1.4 1 350 ÷ 100 = 13,5
13,5 × 140 = 1 890
= 1 890 steps
1. You may choose a partner to work with for the next activity. Read the problems and solve them. Write neat number sentences, showing the operations clearly. Remember the units!
1.1 Study the map with scale and your ruler and determine the distances between the various towns/cities.

My partner and I worked together. | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 |
We listened to one another. | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 |
We answered all the questions. | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 |
We worked neatly. | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 |
Our answers were correct. | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 |
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 1.6: We know this when the learner solves problems in context including contexts that may be used to build awareness of other Learning Areas, as well as human rights, social, economic and environmental issues such as:
1.6.1: financial;
1.6.2: measurements in Natural Sciences and Technology contexts;
Learning Outcome 2: The learner will be able to recognise, describe and represent patterns and relationships, as well as to solve problems using algebraic language and skills.
Assessment Standard 2.4: We know this when the learner writes number sentences to describe a problem situation, including problems within contexts that may be used to build awareness of human rights, social, economic, cultural and environmental issues.
