## 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 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

LO 2

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].

I know this work
salma
The given of f(x=x-2. then what is the value of this f(3) 5f(x+1)
hmm well what is the answer
Abhi
how do they get the third part x = (32)5/4
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?
hmm
Abhi
is it a question of log
Abhi
🤔.
Abhi
I rally confuse this number And equations too I need exactly help
salma
But this is not salma it's Faiza live in lousvile Ky I garbage this so I am going collage with JCTC that the of the collage thank you my friends

hi

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.
