# 2.52 To recognise and use equivalent forms of decimal fractions

 Page 1 / 1

## Memorandum

INTRODUCTION

The learning programme for grade six consists of five modules:

1. Number concept, Addition and Subtraction

2. Multiplication and Division

3. Fractions and Decimal fractions

4. Measurement and Time

5. Geometry; Data handling and Probability

• It is important that educators complete the modules in the above sequence, as the learners will require the knowledge and skills acquired through a previous module to be able to do the work in any subsequent module.

COMMON AND DECIMAL FRACTIONS (LO 1; 2 AND 5)

LEARNING UNIT 1 FOCUSES ON COMMON FRACTIONS

• This module continues the work dealt with in grade 5. Addition and subtraction of fractions are extended and calculation of a fraction of a particular amount is revised.
• Check whether the learners know the correct terminology and are able to use the correct strategies for doing the above correctly.
• Critical outcome 5 (Communicating effectively by using visual, symbolic and /or language skills in a variety of ways) is addressed.
• It should be possible to work through the module in 3 weeks.
• ** Activity 17 is designed as a portfolio task. It is a very simple task, but learners should do it neatly and accurately. They must be informed in advance of how the educator will be assessing the work.
• LEARNING UNIT 2 FOCUSES ON DECIMAL FRACTIONS
• This module extends the work that was done in grade 5. Learners should be able to do rounding of decimal fractions to the nearest tenth, hundredth and thousandth. Emphasise the use of the correct method (vertical) for addition and subtraction. Also spend sufficient time on the multiplication and division of decimal fractions.
• As learners usually have difficulty with the latter, you could allow 3 to 4 weeks for this section of the work.

** Activity 19 is a task for the portfolio. The assignment is fairly simple, but learners should complete it neatly and accurately. They must be informed in advance of how the educator will be assessing the work.

## Activity: to recognise and use equivalent forms of decimal fractions [lo 1.5.2]

ARRANGEMENT OF DECIMAL AND COMMON FRACTIONS

Earlier in the module you had to decide whether relationship signs were filled in correctly. Work with a friend to examine the following question and the solutions::

1. Two painters wanted to know who was painting the longer wall: one wall measured 9,3 m and the other $9\frac{1}{4}$ m.

x 4

• x 4 I work it out like this: 9,3 = $9\frac{3}{\text{10}}$ $\frac{3}{\text{10}}$ = $\frac{\text{12}}{\text{40}}$

x 10 $9\frac{3}{\text{10}}$ = $9\frac{\text{12}}{\text{40}}$

x 10 $9\frac{1}{4}$ = $9\frac{\text{10}}{\text{40}}$ $\frac{1}{4}$ = $\frac{\text{10}}{\text{40}}$

The 9,3 m wall is longer.

1.2 I first change the $9\frac{1}{4}$ m to a decimal fraction.

x 25x 25 $9\frac{1}{4}$ = $\frac{1}{4}$ = $\frac{\text{25}}{\text{100}}$

9,3 =

Whose method do you prefer?

2. ANOTHER COMPETITION!

This time the girls are competing against the boys! You now have two minutes to fill in the correct relationship sign. Your educator will then ask any boy or girl to read out the right answers.

2.1 0,09 $\frac{9}{\text{100}}$

2.2 4,02 $4\frac{2}{5}$

2.3 0,016 $\frac{\text{16}}{\text{100}}$

2.4 0 0,8

2.5 0,20 . $\frac{1}{5}$

2.6 1,4 $1\frac{8}{\text{20}}$

2.7 3 $\frac{\text{210}}{1\text{000}}$ 3,22

2.8 0,494 $\frac{1}{2}$

2.9 2,006 $2\frac{6}{\text{100}}$

2.10 0,025 $\frac{1}{4}$

• Who has won this time?

## Assessment

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 1.5: We know this when the learner recognises and uses equivalent forms of the numbers listed above, including:

1.5.2 decimal fractions to at least 2 decimal places.

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
20/(×-6^2)
Salomon
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
Salomon
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
Salomon
I got X =-6
Salomon
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?

im all ears I need to learn
Sherica
right! what he said ⤴⤴⤴
Tamia
what is a good calculator for all algebra; would a Casio fx 260 work with all algebra equations? please name the cheapest, thanks.
a perfect square v²+2v+_
kkk nice
algebra 2 Inequalities:If equation 2 = 0 it is an open set?
or infinite solutions?
Kim
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

is it 3×y ?
J, combine like terms 7x-4y
im not good at math so would this help me
yes

Azam
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
Damian
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
Azam
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
how did you get the value of 2000N.What calculations are needed to arrive at it
