# Numbers  (Page 3/5)

 Page 3 / 5

Once more discuss the different ways in which to divide squares and rectangles into halves and quarters.

Much concrete and semi-concrete work must be done when the learners have to divide numbers into quarters, especially when the number is not a multiple of 4. Use objects such as fruit and soft sweets that can actually be broken up quite easily, and not hard objects such as marbles, stones or bottle caps.

Explain to the learners that it will depend on the problem whether you can break it up into fractions or not.

Look at this: Daddy has 25 sheep that have to be herded into 4 pens. How many sheep will there be in each pen? (The remaining sheep cannot be cut up.)

Daddy has slaughtered 25 sheep and takes them to 4 butcheries. How many does each butchery get? (It will certainly be possible to divide the remaining sheep into 4.) Discuss more similar examples.

As soon as the learners understand that 4x is 2 times doubled, and 4÷ is two times halved, this can be drilled, because they must know the tables.

This is a wonderful way of familiarising learners with posing problems, but it demands much and regular practice. As soon as they understand it and can do it with confidence, they put forward wonderful ideas.

Begin with a very simple number sentence, e.g. 3 + 4 = □. Initially, let the learners name objects with which they can possibly work, and write these suggestions on the blackboard: trees, flowers, sweets, sheep, dogs, etc.

Everyone must be involved and try to give suggestions. Make the rows compete and then let them pose the problems as a kind of competition.

The vertical addition and subtraction calculations have been graded from simple to difficult so that it will be easy for you to determine a learner’s problem(s). This will enable you to concentrate on the problem areas only and to give appropriate similar exercises to help them.

With the last row of addition calculations, completing the hundred (carrying over the tens) is done incidentally to determine which of the learners understand this already. However, you are free to facilitate this formally now.

It must be a pattern that is repeated every 2 blocks and therefore it must be exactly the same throughout. It can also be offered with Technology, and the learners can then draw their own blocks on a larger sheet of paper.

Explain rounding off to the nearest R to the learners. Let them bring old catalogues and practise rounding off until they understand it.

This worksheet will give you a good idea of which learners are able to follow and carry out instructions.

Any learner who has a good grasp of hundreds, tens and units at this stage, should be capable of completing this worksheet quite easily. Point out to the learners that if they do not get the same answer in the balloon vertically and horizontally, there is a mistake somewhere and they will have to check the answers vertically and horizontally again.

More examples with smaller numbers can also be given.

• It is Bonny and Tommy’s birthday on 13 May. They want to know how many days are still left before their birthday.
• Complete the calendar. Use the calendar in the classroom or at home and make very sure that you start on the correct day in January.

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 .?
