11.3.1 a) Look at the 2 nd digit after comma (100ths)

If 5, 6, 7, 8, 9: 10ths – digit 1 more

If 4, 3, 2, 1, 0: 10ths – digits remains the same

Replace everything after 10ths with noughts

1. Look at 3 rd digit after comma

If 5, 6, 7, 8, 9: 100ths – digit 1 more

If 4, 3, 2, 1, 0: 100ths – digit remains the same

Replace everything after 100ths with noughts

1. Look at 4 th digit after comma

If 5. 6, 7, 8, 9: Thousandths 1 more

## Activity: decimal fractions and rounding off [lo 1.4.2, lo 1.7.1]

11.1 DECIMAL FRACTIONS AND ROUNDING OFF

Work together with a friend. Look at the sketches. What does one potato cost in each case?

11.2 Round off the following to the nearest whole number. Write down the corresponding letter and see what word is hiding away.

 B D E F G I K 39 149 7 236 38 6 17
 L M N O R S T U 237 15 35 16 8 150 3 4

a) 8,047

b) 15,51

c) 3,7

d) 35,236

e) 149,089

f) 6,4

g) 35,09

h) 38,456

i) 15,912

j) 236,199

k) 235,89

11.3.1 Work in groups of three. Formulate rules/methods for the following:

a) Rounding off to one decimal place (tenths):

b) Rounding off to two decimal places (hundredths):

c) Rounding off to three decimal places (thousandths):

11.3.2 Compare your answers with those of the rest of the class.

11.4

a) Complete the following flow diagram:

b) See if you can complete the table correctly:

 Number 4,368 6,411 8,599 7,255 9,493 5,034 6,286 Rounded off to 2 decimal places 4,37 ............. ............. ............. ............. ............. .............

c) Round off the following to 3 decimal places. Draw a circle around the correct answer:

12.1 Do you still remember?

1 000 ml = 1 litre

1 000 g = 1 kg

1 000 kg = 1 tonne

1 000 litres = 1 k

1 000 m = 1 km

100 c = R1,00

12.2 Fill in the missing answers:

e.g. 3 521 mm to the nearest m = 4 m

a) 11 296 mm to the nearest m = ......................... m

b) R406,38 to the nearest rand = R.........................

c) 6 455 litre to the nearest kl = ......................... kl

d) 4 823 kg to the nearest tonne = ......................... t

e) 32 687 c to the nearest rand = R.........................

f) 8 388 g to the nearest kg = ......................... kg

g) 8 630 m to the nearest litre = ......................... litres

h) 14 277 m to the nearest km = ......................... km

i) R4,4839 to the nearest cent = ......................... c

j) R13,9021 to the nearest cent = ......................... c

## 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 1.4 We know this when the learner recognises and uses equivalent forms of the rational numbers listed above, including:

1.4.2 decimals;

Assessment Standard 1.7: We know this when the learner estimates and calculates by selecting and using operations appropriate to solving problems that involve:

1.7.1 rounding off numbers to at least one decimal place.

are nano particles real
yeah
Joseph
Hello, if I study Physics teacher in bachelor, can I study Nanotechnology in master?
no can't
Lohitha
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
learn
da
no nanotechnology is also a part of physics and maths it requires angle formulas and some pressure regarding concepts
Bhagvanji
hey
Giriraj
Preparation and Applications of Nanomaterial for Drug Delivery
revolt
da
Application of nanotechnology in medicine
has a lot of application modern world
Kamaluddeen
yes
narayan
what is variations in raman spectra for nanomaterials
ya I also want to know the raman spectra
Bhagvanji
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.
Alexandre
nanocopper obvius
Alexandre
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
Hafiz
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 .?
