## Activity: to solve problems in context [lo 1.6.1]

When we buy something in a shop we receive a cash slip. We need to be able to understand and “read” the slip. If not, we will not be able to check if it really reflects what we have bought and paid for. Look at the following examples:

1. Study the above examples and then answer the following questions:

1.1 When were the purchases made at

Pick ’n Pay? ____________________________________________________

Ranch Meat Centre? _____________________________________________

1.2 What does the biltong cost per kg? __________________________________

1.3 How many items were bought from Pick ’n Pay? _______________________

1.4 What % tax had to be paid at

Pick ’n Pay? ____________________________________________________

Ranch Meat Centre? _____________________________________________

1.5 How (with what) did the client pay at

Pick ’n Pay? ___________________________________________________

Ranch Meat Centre? _____________________________________________

1.6 Who was the cashier at Ranch Meat Centre? __________________________

1.7 What amount did the customer give her? _____________________________

1.8 At what time were the purchases made at

Pick ’n Pay? ____________________________________________________

Ranch Meat Centre? _____________________________________________

1.9 If your purchases are not according to the slip, how will you know which cashier helped you at Pick a Pay if you cannot remember what he/she looked like?

_____________________________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________________________

1.10 What does the * next to a few of the amounts on the Pick ’n Pay slip mean?

## Do you still remember?

Explain to a friend how we round off to the nearest 10, 100 and 1 000.

** Can you explain how we would round off to the nearest 10 000?

2. When we go shopping, we can estimate to the nearest rand whether we will have enough money to pay.

Look at the following slip. Round off to the nearest rand and estimate how much you will have to pay for your shopping.

 LAMB 0.360 Kg @ R25.98 / Kg R9.35 _____________ LAMB 0.444 Kg @ R25.98 / Kg R11.54 _____________ SWEET CORN R8.79 _____________ SQUASH 1.295 Kg @ R3.29 / Kg R4.26 _____________ SWEET POTATOES 0.686 Kg @ R2.99 / Kg R2.05 _____________ GOOD MORNING H R3.79 _____________ COOKED HAM 0.288 Kg @ R44.95 / Kg R12.95 _____________

3. Confused Cathy’s shopping list is completely wrong!

3.1 Write the shopping list down correctly.

3.2 Find out what each item will cost at your nearest supermarket and write it down.

3.3 Use your calculator and calculate what this shopping will cost you.

3.4 If you pay with a R100 note, how much change will you get?

## Do you still remember?

Your calculator has a memory that you can use to do calculations with more than

one operation correctly.

M+ : enables the calculator to save or memorise the answer

MR / RCM : these keys are pressed if you want to retrieve the memorised answers

e.g. (347 219 + 34 987) + (296 553 + 1 897 320)

Key in 347 219 + 34 987 = M+

Then key in 296 553 + 1 897 320 = M+

Then key in MR or RCM

## 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 1.6: We know this when the learner solves problems in context including contexts that may be used to build awareness of other Learning Areas, as well as human rights, social, economic and environmental issues such as:

1.6.1: financial (including buying and selling, profit and loss, simple budgets, reading and interpreting accounts, and discount).

how can chip be made from sand
is this allso about nanoscale material
Almas
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 is the latest information on a no technology how can I find it
William
currently
William
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

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
how did you get the value of 2000N.What calculations are needed to arrive at it
