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.

*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).
