## Brain teaser

1. Move “minus” to just before “x” so that sum reads 1 x 1 = 1

2. Take one away from = and add to – so that sum reads 1 = 111 – 11

## Activity: to describe and illustrate different cultures' ways of writing [lo 1.2]

• Can you deduce from this how the Romans would have written 11?

_____________________________________________________________________

1.2 How would they have written 15?

_____________________________________________________________________

1.3 Where are these Roman numerals still used nowadays?

_____________________________________________________________________

• Look carefully at the following:
 We: 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100 The Romans: X XX XXX XL L LX LXX LXXX XC C We: 100 200 300 400 500 600 700 800 900 1 000 The Romans: C CC CCC CD D DC DCC DCCC CM M

2. Use the information given above and calculate the following.

• 40 + 2 ________________________________________________________

2.2 90 + 9 ________________________________________________________

2.3 2 000 + 500 + 50 _______________________________________________

3. You have just practised writing like the Romans. Below are more examples of how they would write certain numbers. Can you write them in ordinary (our) numbers?

3.1 DCVIII ________________________________________________________

3.2 LXV ________________________________________________________

3.3 MMMCCLVII __________________________________________________

4. Write our present date in Roman numerals.

BRAIN TEASER

The matches below have been set out in Roman numerals, but the answers are incorrect. Can you “fix” each sum, so that the answer is correct, by moving only ONE match?

TIME FOR SELF-ASSESSMENT

Evaluate yourself on a scale of 1 - 4 by just drawing a circle around the figure that is true about yourself.

 I can Not at all Some-times Most of the time Always Use the constant function of my pocket calculator for repeated addition 1 2 3 4 Write down Roman numerals for our numbers 1 2 3 4 Add and give the answer in Roman numerals 1 2 3 4 Write Roman numerals in ordinary numbers 1 2 3 4

However, the Roman counting system gets very complicated. The decimal system (OR METRIC SYSTEM) that we use is more practical. Let us consider the different ways in which we can add.

DO YOU REMEMBER?

• The answer of an addition sum is called the SUM OF THE TWO NUMBERS.
• The INVERSE (reverse) calculation of addition is SUBTRACTION.

DID YOU KNOW?

The order in which numbers are added makes no difference to the answer.

 For example: 5 + 4 = 4 + 5 9 = 9
 As well as: (16 + 14) + 12 = 16 + (14 + 12) 30 + 12 = 16 + 26 42 = 42

## Assessment

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 1.2: We know this when the learner describes and illustrates various ways of writing numbers in different cultures (including local) throughout history.

where we get a research paper on Nano chemistry....?
nanopartical of organic/inorganic / physical chemistry , pdf / thesis / review
Ali
what are the products of Nano chemistry?
There are lots of products of nano chemistry... Like nano coatings.....carbon fiber.. And lots of others..
learn
Even nanotechnology is pretty much all about chemistry... Its the chemistry on quantum or atomic level

no nanotechnology is also a part of physics and maths it requires angle formulas and some pressure regarding concepts

what is variations in raman spectra for nanomaterials
I only see partial conversation and what's the question here!
what about nanotechnology for water purification
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
Professor
I think
Professor
Nasa has use it in the 60's, copper as water purification in the moon travel.

what is the stm
is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
Damian
How we are making nano material?
what is a peer
What is meant by 'nano scale'?
What is STMs full form?
LITNING
scanning tunneling microscope
Sahil
how nano science is used for hydrophobicity
Santosh
Do u think that Graphene and Fullrene fiber can be used to make Air Plane body structure the lightest and strongest. Rafiq
Rafiq
what is differents between GO and RGO?
Mahi
what is simplest way to understand the applications of nano robots used to detect the cancer affected cell of human body.? How this robot is carried to required site of body cell.? what will be the carrier material and how can be detected that correct delivery of drug is done Rafiq
Rafiq
if virus is killing to make ARTIFICIAL DNA OF GRAPHENE FOR KILLED THE VIRUS .THIS IS OUR ASSUMPTION
Anam
analytical skills graphene is prepared to kill any type viruses .
Anam
Any one who tell me about Preparation and application of Nanomaterial for drug Delivery

what is Nano technology ?
write examples of Nano molecule?
Bob
The nanotechnology is as new science, to scale nanometric
brayan
nanotechnology is the study, desing, synthesis, manipulation and application of materials and functional systems through control of matter at nanoscale
Damian
Is there any normative that regulates the use of silver nanoparticles?
what king of growth are you checking .?
Renato
What fields keep nano created devices from performing or assimulating ? Magnetic fields ? Are do they assimilate ?
why we need to study biomolecules, molecular biology in nanotechnology?
?
Kyle
yes I'm doing my masters in nanotechnology, we are being studying all these domains as well..
why?
what school?
Kyle
biomolecules are e building blocks of every organics and inorganic materials.
Joe
how did you get the value of 2000N.What calculations are needed to arrive at it
