Activity: calculations [lo 1.6, lo 1.8, lo 4.6, lo 5.5]

  • Here is the poster that Bonny made to attract the people to their stalls.

  • Calculate the costs:

Mary bought: 3 pancakes, 1 hotdog and 2 cool drinks.

She paid _____________________________________________________________

Terry bought: 2 hamburgers, 2 candy floss and 2 fruit juices.

He paid ____________________________________________________________

Mom bought: 4 hotdogs, 4 puddings and 4 ice creams.

She paid _____________________________________________________________

The twins bought: 4 pancakes, 2 fruit juices en 2 candy floss.

They paid __________________________________________________________

They planned to make 300 hamburgers . They will sell at R5 each. 10 meatballs can be made from 1 kg of mince. The mince is packed in 5 kg - packs .

  • Complete the table:
packs of mince 1 2 3 4
kg 5 10
meat balls 50 100
R____ altogether 250 500
  • How many 5 kg-packs must they buy? ________packs.
  • If 1 kg of mince is needed for 10 meatballs, how many grams are needed for each meatball?________________________________________________

The sausages for the hotdogs were packed in 3 kg-packs. Each 3 kg-pack is enough for 25 hotdogs . They bought 8 such packs. The hotdogs will be sold at R3 each.

  • Complete the table:
packs of sausage 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
kg 3 6 9
hotdogs 25 50
R____ altogether 75 150
  • How many hotdogs will they make? _________________ hotdogs.
  • How much money will the hamburgers and the hotdogs bring in?


  • What is the difference between the amount of money made from the hamburgers and that from the hotdogs? ______________________________

Tommy decided to help Dad with the pony rides. Here is the track that they measured off on the rugby field.

  • What is the perimeter of the track?

One ride takes the pony twice around the track. It takes the pony 5 minutes to go round twice and to have a short rest.

  • What distance will the pony cover for each ride?
  • How many rides can the pony do in 1 hour?
  • They are going to pay R5 per ride. How much money will they make if 50 children have pony rides?
  • Who can calculate how far the pony will have walked altogether?
  • Here is Tommy’s poster.

Calculate how much some children paid for the fun.

  • Bonny had 2 pony rides and 1 turn on the jumping castle.

She paid ___________________________________________________

  • Tommy had 3 turns to shoot the air gun and 1 pony ride.

He paid ___________________________________________________

  • Terry threw the balls twice and had 1 pillow fight.

She paid ___________________________________________________

  • Shane did everything once .

He paid ___________________________________________________

  • Robert did everything twice .

He paid ___________________________________________________

  • How much will you pay if you do everything 5 times?



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 1.6: We know this when the learner solves money problems involving totals and change in rands and cents, including converting between rands and cents;

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

Learning Outcome 4: The learner will be able to use appropriate measuring units, instruments and formulae in a variety of contexts.

Assessment Standard 4.6: We know this when the learner investigates (alone and/or as a member of a group or team) and approximates;

Learning Outcome 5: The learner will be able to collect, summarise, display and critically analyse data in order to draw conclusions and make predictions, and to interpret and determine chance variation.

Assessment Standard 5.5: We know this when the learner reads and interprets data presented in simple tables and lists.
