It might help them to draw the diagrams.
The decision to make use of carried numbers is left to the educator.
First supply paper shapes for dividing into tens, so that the learners may discover for themselves that tenths , like thirds and fifths, have to be calculated and measured. It is not simply a matter of folding and folding again as in the case of a ½ and a ¼ .
Guide them to discover that they, by first obtaining fifths , can divide each fifth down the middle to obtain tenths .
Discuss symmetrical shapes with the learners. Let them identify symmetrical objects in the classroom. They should complete the drawing after this exercise.
Bonny and Tommy enjoyed watching the elephants most of all. There were large ones and small ones.
Each of the spaces between * and * on the number line represents 20 cm. Use any method to calculate the length of each trunk:

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 1.8: 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 4.5: We know this when the learner estimates, measures, compares and orders three-dimensional objects using non-standard and standard measures;
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.
