This is written as the remainder (rem.) .

Begin with work in the number range of the tables (to tenth multiple). You will need much concrete work and lots of repetition, because it is very important that the learners understand what they are doing before you go on to larger numbers.

The learners must do research in books and pamphlets about the different traffic signs and discuss them before they complete the signs.

Many pictures and different objects with these shapes are required to ensure that the learners recognise all the shapes.

Make the learners aware of the fact that there is no easy way of folding or dividing for obtaining fifths of 2-D shapes. This must be determined by measuring .

It may be necessary to help the learners to determine the location of the first square that must be coloured in. Do not offer help if they are able to find it independently.

Encourage learners to tell where they live and how they would explain the route to their home to someone else. Help them to explain an easy route to find a certain room in the school.

  • Here is a street plan of the area where Bonny and Tommy live.

Colour the following squares to mark the route that the bus takes.

Down : Across

3 : 1 1, 1 2, 1 3, 1 4

4 : 1 1

5 : 1 1

6 : 1 1

7 : 1 1

8 : 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 1 0, 1 1

1 5 : 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 1 0, 1 1, 1 2, 1 3, 1 4, 1 5

Down : Across

9 : 3

1 0 : 3

1 1 : 3

1 2 : 3

1 3 : 3

1 4 : 3

  • If each square that you have coloured in represents 10 m , the bus travels ………………..m.
  • If each square represents 100 m , the bus travels …………………….. m.
  • How many km is this? Try to work it out! It is ……………………………. km.
  • Explain to a friend the route that the bus takes. Use the direction words left and right , as well as other information from the street plan. Now write the directions here:
  • Where do Bonny and Tommy live? Follow the directions and draw the route on the street plan as you go.

Walk along School Street as far as Short Street; turn left into Short Street; walk as far as the stop sign; turn right into Church Street; walk to Long Street and turn right again, into Long Street. They live on the left hand side of Long Street, in the 2nd house from the corner.

  • Colour in the square.
  • What is the number of their house?

(Square : Down : Across)? _______ : _______


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 1.4: We know this when the learner orders, describes and compares numbers;

Assessment Standard 1.8: We know this when the learner can perform calculations, using appropriate symbols, to solve problems;

Learning Outcome 3: The learner will be able to describe and represent characteristics and relationships between two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional objects in a variety of orientations and positions.

Assessment Standard 3.1: We know this when the learner recognises, identifies and names two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional objects in the environment and in pictures.

Assessment Standard 3.6: We know this when the learner reads, interprets and draws informal maps of the school environment or of an arrangement of three-dimensional objects and locates objects on the map.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
