4. We know that there are 1 000 mm in 1 m

Thus: 2 347 mm = 2 m 347 mm= 2,347 m

Complete the table:

mm m
e.g. 4 328 4,328
..................... 3
367 .....................
..................... 4,7
28 .....................
..................... 0,067
6 .....................

5. In the same way 1 000 m = 1 km

Thus: 1 407 m = 1 km 407 m= 1,407 km

Complete the table:

Distance in m 2 368 ............ 426 ............ 38 ............ 9
Distance in km 2,368 7 ............ 0,6 ............ 1,48 ............

Activity 3:

  • To measure two-dimensional figures [LO 4.5.3]

To use standard units to record [lo 4.5.3]

Scale:

DID YOU KNOW?

When we draw something, e.g. a house, we don’t draw it as big as it actually is.

We draw it to scale. The shape stays the same but the size is different (smaller). The knife below is drawn on a scale of 1:4

Now think about maps. Normally a place will be drawn much smaller than it actually is in reality. A scale tells us how to measure distances on a map. In the map below 1 cm equals 500 km.

1. Answer the following questions:

1.1 What is the actual length of the knife above? 1_____

1.2

  1. What is the actual distance, according to the scale, from town

A to town B?....................

  1. And from C to D?....................

2. Determine the scale of each item below:

2.1 The actual length of the crayon is 15 cm.

Scale: .........................................

2.2 The actual length of the bottle is 80 cm.

Scale: .........................................

2.3 The actual length of the fish is 45 cm.

Scale: .........................................

  • Now measure the distance. _____ mm
  • How many cm is it?
  • How many m is it?

Now take any 340 mℓ cool drink tin and measure the distance around it in mm.

Assessment

LO 4
MeasurementThe learner will be able to use appropriate measuring units, instruments and formulae in a variety of contexts.
We know this when the learner:
4.1 reads, tells and writes analogue, digital and 24-hour time to at least the nearest minute and second;
4.2 solves problems involving calculation and conversion between appropriate time units including decades, centuries and millennia;
4.3 uses time-measuring instruments to appropriate levels of precision including watches and stopwatches;
4.4 describes and illustrates ways of representing time in different cultures throughout history;
4.5 estimates, measures, records, compares and orders two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional objects using S.I. units with appropriate precision for:
  • mass using grams (g) en kilograms (kg);
  • capacity using millimetres (mm), centimetres (cm), metres (m) en kilometres (km);
  • length using. millimetres (mm), centimetres (cm), metres (m) en kilometres (km);
4.6 solves problems involving selecting, calculating with and converting between appropriate S.I. units listed above, integrating appropriate contexts for Technology and Natural Sciences;
4.7 uses appropriate measuring instruments (with understanding of their limitations) to appropriate levels of precision including:
  • bathroom scales, kitchen scales and balances to measure mass;
  • measuring jugs to measure capacity;
  • rulers, metre sticks, tape measures and trundle wheels to measure length.

please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
