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.

Common and Decimal Fractions

Common Fractions

EDUCATOR SECTION

Memorandum

INTRODUCTION

The learning programme for grade six consists of five modules:

1. Number concept, Addition and Subtraction

2. Multiplication and Division

3. Fractions and Decimal fractions

4. Measurement and Time

5. Geometry; Data handling and Probability

  • It is important that educators complete the modules in the above sequence, as the learners will require the knowledge and skills acquired through a previous module to be able to do the work in any subsequent module.

COMMON AND DECIMAL FRACTIONS (LO 1; 2 AND 5)

LEARNING UNIT 1 FOCUSES ON COMMON FRACTIONS

  • This module continues the work dealt with in grade 5. Addition and subtraction of fractions are extended and calculation of a fraction of a particular amount is revised.
  • Check whether the learners know the correct terminology and are able to use the correct strategies for doing the above correctly.
  • Critical outcome 5 (Communicating effectively by using visual, symbolic and /or language skills in a variety of ways) is addressed.
  • It should be possible to work through the module in 3 weeks.
  • ** Activity 17 is designed as a portfolio task. It is a very simple task, but learners should do it neatly and accurately. They must be informed in advance of how the educator will be assessing the work.
  • LEARNING UNIT 2 FOCUSES ON DECIMAL FRACTIONS
  • This module extends the work that was done in grade 5. Learners should be able to do rounding of decimal fractions to the nearest tenth, hundredth and thousandth. Emphasise the use of the correct method (vertical) for addition and subtraction. Also spend sufficient time on the multiplication and division of decimal fractions.
  • As learners usually have difficulty with the latter, you could allow 3 to 4 weeks for this section of the work.
  • ** Activity 19 is a task for the portfolio. The assignment is fairly simple, but learners should complete it neatly and accurately. They must be informed in advance of how the educator will be assessing the work.

ACTIVITY: To record data [LO 5.1, LO 5.2, LO 5.4]

To draw graphs and interpret data [LO 5.6]

** This activity is for inclusion in your portfolio. Work neatly and consider the assessment grid before you start.

1. Find out at home what fraction of your parents’ income is spent on:

1.1 food:

1.2 housing:

1.3 electricity and water:

1.4 telephone:

1.5 motor car/s:

  • recreation (eating out, cinema, etc.):

2. Draw a table and represent the above information as neatly as possible.

3. Now draw a pie chart to show this information:

ASSESSMENT: SALARY AND FRACTIONS

  1. = not at all
  2. = just a little
  3. = good

4 = outstanding

Table 1
CRITERIA CODE
  1 2 3 4
Completeness Hardly any of the instructions have been carried out. Half of the instructions have been carried out One instruction has not been carried out. All instructions have been carried out.
Table This was not done at all. It has been done but many errors occur and it is incomplete. One or two errors occur. It has been neatly and correctly done.
Graph This was not done at all. It has been done but many errors occur and it is incomplete. One or two errors occur. It has been neatly and correctly done.

Assessment

Learning Outcome 5:The learner will be able to collect, summarise, display and critically analyse data in order to draw conclusions and make predictions, and to interpret and determine chance variation.

Assessment Standard 5.1: We know this when the learner poses simple questions about school and family environment, and identifies appropriate data sources in order to address human rights, social, political, cultural, environmental and economic issues in that environment;

Assessment Standard 5.2: We know this when the learner uses simple data collection sheets (requiring tallies) and simple questionnaires (with yes/no type responses) in order to collect data (alone and/or as a member of a group or team) to answer questions posed by the teacher, class and self;

Assessment Standard 5.4: We know this when the learner organises and records data, using tallies and tables;

Assessment Standard 5.6: We know this when the learner draws a variety of graphs by hand/technology to display and interpret data (grouped and ungrouped).
