##### 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.

## Content

### ACTIVITY: Temperatures [LO 2.6, LO 2.1]

20. DID YOU KNOW?

Water freezes at 0°C and boils at 100°C. A Swedish astronomer discovered the Celsius scale. Examine the difference between the Celsius scale and the Fahrenheit scale.

20.1 Fill in: < ; > or = : -30 ........ -22

20.2 According to the thermometer on the previous page -30°C = -22°F. Explain how this is possible.

## Assessment

Learning Outcome 2:The learner will be able to recognise, describe and represent patterns and relationships, as well as to solve problems using algebraic language and skills.

Assessment Standard 2.1: We know this when the learner investigates and expands numeric and geometric patterns looking for a relationship or rules, including patterns;

Assessment Standard 2.6: We know this when the learner describes a situation by interpreting a graph of the situation, or draws a graph from a description of a situation (e.g. height of a roller-coaster car over time; the speed of a racing car going around a track).
