##### Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

##### What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

##### Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

##### What are tags?

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.

### ACTIVITY: To calculate by selecting appropriate operations for solving particular problems [LO 4.5]

Let's first see how well you are able to add and subtract without the help of a pocket calculator.

1. Reduce the following masses by 50 g:

1.1 2 916 kg = ________________________________ kg

1.2 2,048 kg = ________________________________ kg

1.3 0,800 kg = ________________________________ kg

1.4 26,132 kg = _______________________________ kg

2. Increase the following masses by 300 g:

2.1 2,798 kg = ________________________________ kg

2.2 3,804 kg = ________________________________ kg

2.3 0,919 kg = ________________________________ kg

2.4 18,497 kg = _______________________________ kg

3. Complete the calculations without the use of a calculator (first make units the same):

3.1 38,942 kg + 9,746 kg =

## Assessment

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 solves problems involving selecting, calculating with and converting between appropriate S.I. units listed above, integrating with appropriate Technology and Natural Sciences contexts.
