What is a lens?

#### Definition of a lens

##### 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.

1.2 (a) 800 (b) 300 (c) 2 500 (d) 1 700

2.2

a) 16 00 － 10 000 = 6 000

b) 98 000 - 46 000 = 52 000

c) 642 000 - 23 6000 = 406 000

d) 926 000 - 759 000 = 167 000

e) 2468000 - 1129000 = 1339000

### Activity: To calculate by using selected computations [LO 1.8]

1. As with addition we can subtract more easily by rounding off numbers. In this way we estimate what the answer should be approximately! Work with a friend. Take turns to say the answers out loud to each other. Check the answers with a calculator. Feel free to ask your educator's help where needed.

1.1 Subtract by rounding off both numbers to the nearest 10:

a) 567 – 63

b) 901 – 87

c) 885 – 25

d) 1 454 – 49

e) 1 999 – 138

1.2 Round both numbers to the nearest 100 and subtract:

a) 973 – 214

b) 1 259 – 993

c) 6 048 – 3 512

d) 9 999 – 8 234

2. Let us look at different ways in which the difference between big numbers can be calculated!

2.1 Can you still remember?

Explain to friend how to round off to the nearest 1 000.

2.2 Complete the table by rounding off to the nearest 1 000:

 NUMBER 1 NUMBER 2 DIFFERENCE e.g. 4 386 – 1 274 4 000 1 000 3 000 a) 15 980 – 9 621 .......................... .......................... .......................... b) 98 102 – 46 147 .......................... .......................... .......................... c) 642 368 – 236 419 .......................... .......................... .......................... d) 926 135 – 758 910 .......................... .......................... .......................... e) 2 468 265 – 1 128 651 .......................... .......................... ..........................

## 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 1.8: We know this when the learner estimates and calculates by selecting and using operations appropriate to solving problems;

1.8.1 rounding off to the nearest 5, 10, 100 or 1 000;

1.8.2 addition and subtraction of whole numbers with at least five digits.
