Geography

Grade 5

Map work

Module 2

Important physical features on a map

ACTIVITY 1:

TO IDENTIFY IMPORTANT PHYSICAL FEATURES ON A MAP

[LO 2.1]

Study the map of the Cape Peninsula area below and then answer the questions that follow .

Provide a symbol key for this map below the map.

The Cape Peninsula Area

Du ToitskloofDiep River

  • Write down the names of two rivers.
  • What island is found off Cape Town?
  • For what was the island particularly known?
  • In what mountain range is the Steenbras Dam located?
  • Colour the rivers, dams and the sea blue.
  • In what direction does a passenger travelling from Cape Town to Fish Hoek by train, move?
  • How many possible routes are there for a motorist who wants to travel from Stellenbosch to Paarl?
  • What is the southern most point on the map?
  • In what direction does Kleinmond lie from Bellville?

If you live in another region, your teacher will give you a map of that region. Similar questions will then be asked about your own region.

  • Until now we have worked with a few very simple sketch maps. It is not difficult to draw such maps, because they are of a small, well-known area. If a map of a large area has to be drawn, it becomes difficult.
  • The most valuable book and aid that you MUST have for Geography is an ATLAS. According to the dictionary an atlas is a collection of geographical maps in the form of a book.

ACTIVITY 2:

TO IDENTIFY IMPORTANT PHYSICAL FEATURES ON A MAP

[LO 2.1]

Your teacher will now hand out atlases and ask you to open them at the page with a map of the RSA. Using all your knowledge, answer the following questions and complete the accompanying map of the RSA:

  • How many provinces are there in the RSA?
  • Find the province in which you live and draw the borders in red.
  • Use the correct map symbols to indicate the capital city of your province on your map. Write the name of the capital on your map.
  • Can the GAUTENG province have a port?

- Give a reason for your answer:

  • Give the names of two provinces that do not lie along the coast.

and

  • Write the names of the most important ports in the RSA on your map.
  • Colour the sea blue.
  • Write the names of the two oceans along the RSA coast on your map.
  • Find the Gariep (formerly known as the Orange River) on your atlas map and answer the following questions:

- Where does the Gariep originate?

- In what direction does the Gariep flow?

- In what ocean does the Gariep discharge?

- Name the two most important branches of the Gariep.

and

- With what neighbouring countries does the Gariep River form a border?

and

  • Draw the following rivers in blue on your map:

Limpopo; Fish; Tugela.

Assessment

GEOGRAPHICAL KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING

The learner will be able to demonstrate geographical and environmental knowledge and understanding.

We know this when the learner:

2.1 identifies and describes major physical features of South Africa, including those of the home province [people and places];

2.2 identifies links between natural resources and economic activities in South Africa [people and resources];

2.3 describes ways in which the physical environment influences human activity and how human activity is influenced by the physical environment [people and the environment].

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
ninjadapaul
20/(×-6^2)
Salomon
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
ninjadapaul
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
ninjadapaul
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
ninjadapaul
oops. ignore that.
ninjadapaul
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
ninjadapaul
hmm
Abhi
is it a question of log
Abhi

or infinite solutions?
Kim
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.
