To use a series of techniques to do calculations [LO 1.10]

You have probably heard on the news or read in the papers that problems like the one described

below are very commonplace nowadays. We have to be able to do calculations correctly if we

want to find the answers to these problems!

1. Divide into groups of three. See whether you can solve the following problems. Your educator will supply you with the necessary paper to work on.

1.1 After terrible floods in their town, the Sunshine Primary School decides to contribute as many blankets as possible to flood victims. The Principal, Mrs Kuhn, says that about 10 000 blankets are needed. If the learners collect 7 386 blankets, how many more are needed?

1.2 Two factories produce sweets for disadvantaged children. If the Lollipop factory packaged 15

125 sweets and the Jelly Baby factory 20 985, how many fewer sweets did the Lollipop factory

have to distribute?

2. Explain to the rest of the class how your group calculated your answers.

3. Compare your methods. How do they differ?

4. Use a calculator to check the answers.

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, and simple budgets);

Assessment Standard 1.10: We know this when the learner uses a range of techniques to perform written and mental calculations with whole numbers;

Activity: To determine the equivalence and validity of different representations

[LO 2.6]

To use strategies to check solutions [LO 1.11]

During the revious activity you used your own techniques and strategies to solve the problems.

In your feedback to the class you probably noticed that there is not only one way in which we

can subtract numbers. Divide into groups of three. Read the following problem thoroughly and

as a group work through the different methods of solving it.

A rugby match was attended by 32 564 men and 29 436 women.

How many more men than women watched the match?

1.1 I like doing addition:

32 564 – 29 436

Therefore: 29 436 + 64 = 29 500

29 500 + 500 = 30 000

30 000 + 2 564 = 32 564

64 + 500 + 2 564 = 3 128

Therefore there were 3 128 more men than women.

1.2 I round off the second number to the nearest 100:

32 564 – 29 436

Therefore: 32 564 – 29 400 = 3 164

3 164 – 36 = 3 128

The answer is 3 128 more men.

1.3 I prefer rounding off the subtrahend to the nearest 1 000:

32 564 – 29 436

Therefore: 32 564 – 29 000 = 3 564

3 564 – 436 = 3 128

1.4 I calculate the difference step by step:

32 564 – 29 436

Therefore: 32 000 – 29 000 = 3 000

564 – 436 = 128

3000 + 128 = 3 128

1.5 I first write the numbers in extended notation:

32 564 – 29 436

Thus: 30 000 + 2 000 + 500 + 60 + 4

- 20 000 + 9 000 + 400 + 30 + 6

Now I regroup:

20 000 + 12 000 + 500 + 50 + 14

- 20 000 + 9 000 + 400 + 30 + 6

0 + 3 000 + 100 + 20 + 8

Therefore the answer is 3 128

1.6 I calculate the difference by working with negative numbers:

32 564 – 29 436

Therefore: 30 000 – 20 000 = 10 000

2 000 – 9 000 = – 7 000 (I still have to subtract 7 000)

500 – 400 = 100

60 – 30 = 30

4 – 6 = – 2 (I still have to subtract 2)

The difference therefore is:

10 000 – 7 000 + 100 + 30 – 2 = 3 128

2. 2.1 Which of the above methods is the easiest for YOU? ______________

Why? _______________________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________________________

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

2.2 See if your group can think of any another method for calculating the difference.

2. 2.1 Let's have a race! See if you can beat your partner, but remember to work neatly!

Take a good look at each number.

Replace the figure 8 with a 5 in each instance.

Write the new number right below the earlier one.

Then calculate the difference between the 2 numbers and write the answer in the last space.  e.g.

Figure 1.1.

Figure 1.2.

2.2 What is the difference between the biggest and the smallest answer?

_____________________________________________________________________

2.3 Compare your answers with those of your partner.

2.4 Check your answers with the help of a pocket calculator.

3. What follows is still another technique to calculate the difference between two numbers.

3.1 Work in groups of three again. Read the following problems attentively and explain the

solutions to one another.

a) Kayla's father buys a brand new Renault Scenic for R147 293 and Wayne's father buys a

second-hand car for R69 475. How much more does Kayla’s father pay than Wayne's father?  Figure 1.3.

Kayla's father pays R77 818 more.

b) Roberto frequently has to make overseas phone calls and his telephone account comes to R30

000. Carli uses her cell phone to make telephone calls and her account comes to R2 586. By what amount is Carli's account less than Roberto's account?

Figure 1.4.

Carli pays R27 414 less.

3.2 Calculate the following by making use of the above method:

a) __________= 42 063 – 19 537

TIME FOR SELF-ASSESSMENT

We have now studied different techniques / strategies to do and to check calculations. How do

YOU feel about the work we have just completed?

Puzzle!

You may only use the following keys of your calculator:

1 ; – ; 0 ; =

See if you are able to change the first number into the second

number!

e.g. Change 1 416 to 285

1 416 – 1 110 = 306 – 11 = 295 – 10 = 285

a) Change 378 into 147

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 1.10: We know this when the learner uses a range of techniques to perform written and mental calculations with whole numbers;

1.10.1 adding and subtracting in columns.

Assessment Standard 1.11: We know this when the learner uses a range of strategies to check solutions and judge the reasonableness of solutions.

CHALLENGE

Here is an assignment for your portfolio. Your educator will go through it with you and explain exactly what is expected of you. Make sure that you understand completely before you begin.

Remember to work neatly!

A challenge!

You have won a competition and are richer by a million rand! But you may only buy articles

advertised in your local newspaper. Cut out the pictures/advertisements of what you would buy

and paste them below, together with the prices. Indicate how much money you will have left after making your purchases. Ask a friend to check your calculations.
