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
COMMON AND DECIMAL FRACTIONS (LO 1; 2 AND 5)
LEARNING UNIT 1 FOCUSES ON COMMON FRACTIONS
** 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.
1.1 374,019
1.2 613,44

BRAIN TEASER!
2.4 200 ; 290 ; 3 ; 10,02 ; 2,1 ; 2,5 ; 3,02
3. Numbers whithin the square are equal to double those in the cicle
1. Now that you know how to add and subtract decimal fractions, you can tackle the following activity. Work on your own. Calculate the following without using your pocket calculator:
1.1 208,96 + 32,459 + 132,6
1.2 458,843 + 56,397 + 98,2
1.3 143,96 – 65,239
1.4 541,23 – 152,47
2. BRAIN-TEASER!
Select any one of the numbers in the circle.
Write your answer in the square.
3. What do you notice when you examine the answers?
Colour the appropriate block:
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 1.8: We know this when the learner estimates and calculates by selecting and using operations appropriate to solving problems that involve:
1.8.8 addition and subtraction of positive decimals with at least 2 decimal places.
