## NCV 4 Mathematical Literacy Hands-On Support Slide Show - Module 4Presentation Transcript

• Mathematical Literacy 4
• Module 4: Space, Shape and Orientation
• Module 4: Space, Shape and Orientation
• After completing this outcome, you will be able to:
• perform space, shape and orientation calculations to solve problems
• read, interpret and use representations to solve problems
• make physical and diagrammatical representation to investigate and illustrate solutions
• Activity 1
• It is assumed that you know what the following words mean. Explain to each other what the following words mean and complete the table:
•
• Explain the meaning of the words, all of which you should have already have encountered. Work in groups.
• Activity 2
• What is the force of attraction between masses such as the earth and the moon called?
• What is the unit of measurement of weight?
• a. Calculate the weight of a man on the moon if his mass on earth is 90kg. (Gravitational force /acceleration on the moon is 1,57 m/s²).
• b. Calculate this same man’s weight on earth.
• Calculate the gravitational acceleration constant (gravitational force on Jupiter if the same man has a weight of 4628,57 N there.
141.3 Newtons gravity Newtons 882N 51.43m.s -1
• 2. PERFORM SPACE, SHAPE AND ORIENTATION CALCULATIONS
• At the end of this outcome, you will be able to calculate:
• Area
• Volume
• Distance
• 2.1 Dimensions
• 2.2 Perimeter calculations
• The perimeter of a shape is the total distance around the edges, defining the outline of the shape
• Perimeter is one dimensional
• Perimeter is always given in a measurement of length
• Perimeter of a circle is called the circumference
• Activity 3
• Calculate the amount of skirting board that has to be ordered in building Ashley’s house – see Summative Assessment Example at end of this module for the plan view of this house.
• 2.3 Area calculations
• A square is a quadrilateral (four-sided figure) with the four sides with the same length and with four right angles, e.g. the common bathroom tile which is stuck against the wall.
• If the sides of the tile are all 10 cm, then the area of the tile will be:
• 10cm x 10cm = 100 cm² (read as 100 square centimeters).
• 100 is known as a square number, as are the following numbers: 4; 9; 16; 25; 36; 49; 81; 121; 144; 169.
• What is the common trait in this sequence of numbers?
• They can all be written in the square root form with 2 as an index: 2² ; 3² ; 4² ; 5² ; etc…
• Area of rectangles
• If a book measures 7cm in length and 5cm in breadth, then there are seven rows of five centimetres each and the surface area will amount to 7 x 5 square centimetres or 35 cm² the index two indicating the two dimensions.
• Thus: Area of a rectangle = length x breadth of rectangle
• Area of the book = 7 x 5 = 35 cm²
• Formula for areas
• Activity 4
• Write a formula for the perimeter of a rectangle and then calculate it for the rectangles with the following dimensions. Give answers in metres.
• length = 145,46 cm; breadth = 88,95 cm.
• length = 2014 mm; breadth = 258,63 cm.
• length = 125,25 m; breadth = 5 238 cm.
Perimeter of rectangle = 2(l+b) 468.82cm = 4.68m 6.614m 355.76m
• Activity 4
• 2. Now do the same for the areas of the rectangles with the dimensions in the previous question. Give answers in square metres.
• length = 145,46 cm; breadth = 88,95 cm.
• length = 2014 mm; breadth = 258,63 cm.
• length = 125,25 m; breadth = 5 238 cm.
1.29m 2 5.21m 2 6560.60m 2
• Activity 4
• 3. Calculate the circumference of circles with the following radii. Look at the explanation of the origin of the value for π above to establish the formula for the perimeter of a circle:
Perimeter=  d or 2  r 787.9cm 8083.57cm 3904.37cm
• Activity 4
• 4. Calculate the area of the above three circles. Find the formula elsewhere in the module.
Area of circle =  r 2 49402.04 cm2 = 4.94m 2 5.20m 2 121.31m 2
• 2.4 Volume calculations
• Where length is a measurement in one dimension, and area is a measurement in two dimensions, volume is a measurement in three dimensions, and will always be given in cubic units. It is therefore a measure of the length, breadth and height of a container. Count the cubic content of the following rectangular prism
• Example
• If a carton of fruit juice measures 5cm in the length of the base, 3cm in the breadth of the base and 8cm in the height, then the volume of fluid that the carton can contain will be:
• 5 x 3 x 8 cm or cc or ml, i.e. = 120 cubic centimetres.
• Volume of a box = length times breadth times height.
• But you know that the base of the box is a rectangle and that length times breadth of a rectangle = area of the rectangle.
• So you can say that:
• Volume of a box = (base area) times height
• Volume formulae

• Triangle height = By Pythagoras: hypotenuse = 18; base = 9, height =  (18 2 – 9 2 ) =  243 = 15.59cm
• SA (Equilateral triangle prism) = 2(1/2 base x height) + 3(ba) = 2170.62cm2
• Activity 6
• Decide on a suitably sized gift box which you can make to hold a small gift and / or: Use the given net to make a toy soccer ball. Enlarge the supplied net to your preferred size. Add flaps on every other side for attaching the sides with glue.
• Steps in the making of the small model:
• Sketch the net of your gift box or soccer ball on an A4 sheet of paper.
• Make a copy of the net to place in your portfolio of evidence.
• Add small attachment flaps by which the sides can be glued to each other. Experiment to determine where these flaps should be – usually on every other side.
• Cut the net out and make the small box or the toy soccer ball with wood glue.
• Place the gift box or that which another group member made in front of you on the table and sketch it in depth, i.e. as a holder with capacity or volume.
•
• You have now made a rectangular right prism and you have sketched it in three dimensions. This kind of sketch is also called a perspective sketch.

• The first pipe has a diameter of 18 cm
• The second pipe has a diameter of 6,5 cm.
Volume =  r 2 h Volume (pipe 1) =  (0.18) 2 (19.25 ) = 1.96m 2 Volume (pipe 2) =  (0.065) 2 (19.25) = 1.96m 2 =0.26m 2

• With 6000 litres of water you can fill one and a half mini-bus taxis.
• With 6000 litres of water you can fill the sink to wash dishes 200 times.
• With 6000 litres of water you can boil 4000 kettles of water.
• With 6000 litres of water you can flush a toilet 500 times.
• Check on this municipality’s calculations. Decide in your group how to do each of these estimations.
• Explain in three steps how you can check for water leaks where you stay or work
• 2.6 Cones and spheres
• A cone is the three-dimensional shape – like an ice-cream cone!!
• It is formed by a straight line when one end is moved around a simple closed curve, while the other end of the line is kept fixed at a point, which is not in the plane of the curve. A sheet of paper can be wrapped around a cone. When it is unwrapped it is a sector of a circle.
• Any sector of a circle (cut along any two radii) can be twisted to form a cone.
• A right circular cone is a cone with a circle as its base.
• The height of a cone is the perpendicular distance of its vertex/tip above the base.
• Slant height of a cone is the length of any straight line from the circumference of its base to the vertex/tip.
• Slant height = square root of the sum of the squares of the radius and the perpendicular height (by the theorem of Pythagoras).
• Curved surface of a right circular cone is the sector which could be bent around (until the edges meet) to form the cone.
• Area of the curved surface = x base radius x slant height of cone.
• Volume of a cone = pi times radius squared divided by 3
• Frustum of a cone is a part of a cone cut off between the base and a plane, which is parallel to the base.
• 2.6 Cones and spheres

• A side view : This is a view of the object or building, looking at it from the side.
• A plan or top view: This is view of the plan or object, looking at it from above.
• Definitions
• A first angle orthographic projection has the front view in the top left-hand corner of a page and next to it, the side view. Directly beneath the front view is the top or plan view of the object or building.
• A perspective drawing is the art of representing a 3-D object on a 2-D surface so as to convey the impression of height, width, depth and relative distance.

• Perspectives
• Perspectives
• Activity 15
• Asanda who has the Shiny Car valet service is now married and his wife Nthabiseng, also has entrepreneurial blood in her veins. She decides to start farming chickens in their backyard. She will start with only 8 hens and is just interested in collecting and selling the eggs.
• She gets the following beautiful sketches from a website called: www.i4at.org
•
•
•
• Activity 15
• 1. Nthabiseng does not understand the measurements. Convert all the Imperial Measurements to metric for her.
• Activity 15
• 2. One group in the class must demonstrate to the others groups how big this hen house actually is by measuring it out on the ground. Set out the plan section by packing stones or bricks. Also set out on your floor plan the nesting area.
• Activity 15
• 3. Build a model of this hen house for Nthabiseng out of cardboard. Use a craft knife to do the cutting. Use wood glue to attach everything. The cupola can jus be fitted on top of the house, i.e. don’t actually make it work. The inside need not be built. The purpose of the model is to show Nthabiseng how the hen house will appear from outside.
• Activity 15
• 4. Take a photo of this little model and ask one member of the group or the facilitator to print the photo which then has to go into your portfolio of evidence.
• Activity 15
• 5. In the building of the model:
• Which geometric shapes have been used?
• Which right prisms have been used?
• Activity 15
• 6. What area will be covered by plywood by the:
• Floor
• Cupola
• Nest boxes
• Storage space
• Walls?
• Activity 15
• 7. What is the purpose of the:
• Pressure treated skids?
• 12” x 12” cupola with 1 1/4 inch vents covered with screen
• Activity 15
• 8. Calculate the lengths of wood to be bought of the:
• Skids
• Joists
• 2 x 2 perches
• Structure lengths to which the plywood will be fixed – called wall studs in the sketch
• Roof rafters
• Cover pieces for outside corners of the plywood.
• Activity 15
• 9. There are no predators in the vicinity and you suggest to Nthabiseng to use screening for the windows and door at first. Calculate the area of screening to be bought. Remember that the vents holes of the cupola (or the extra ventilation method) will also need screening.
• Activity 15
• Nthabiseng asks you to build the hen house for her. You think that you will be able to do it but you find the building of the cupola too challenging. Why does the ventilation aspect have to be at the top of a building? Think of a different way of ventilating the hen house than with the cupola.
• Activity 15
• Explain where more nest boxes can be placed in future? How many will fit into this space?
• Activity 16
• Decide which side is to be the front, which side is to be the side and which the plan view. Decide on an appropriate scale factor. You might have to turn the page through 90 degrees. Roughly work out the position of the views on the page. Leave the same amount of space between the different sketches. The views need to be evenly spaced. Make a rough layout before starting the final sketch.
•   Normally, different parts of the drawing are done in different lines. The main lines are:
• Construction lines - these are faint continuous lines used to plot out the basic shape, as well as for projection and dimension lines . Use a 4H pencil .
• Outlines – these are firm continuous lines used to show the outline of the object. Outlines are often drawn over construction lines. Use a 2H pencil .
• Isometric drawings
• Activity 17: Isometric drawing
• Use a graduated arc to get the 30 degree angle from the horizontal.
• Make an isometric sketch of your model of the hen house. Remember the title and the scale.
• Note the object’s measurements and scale them down to your chosen scale
• Case study 2: Orthographic sketch of the hen house
• Nthabiseng has decided to save on costs so she will not have the storage cupboard built. She feels that the time taken to build that cupboard will cost her too much as the carpenter/builder asks R200 per hour for his labour.
• However, she does need storage space for extra feed, and for bins to carry the eggs in. She decides to have only a shelf put up at the storage space indicated on the diagrams. She finds an advertisement for plastic rack bins on the website: www.storagedirect.co.za
• There are different sizes at different costs:
• Case study 2: Orthographic sketch of the hen house
• Calculate the area of the shelf.
• Make a scaled down plan sketch of this shelf.
• Make plan sketches of the base area of the rackbins at the same scale as the shelf’s plan sketch.
• Cut these base areas out and by moving them around on the sketch of the shelf, decide which rackbins Nthabiseng should buy.
• Investigate the feasibility of rather fitting a shelf along one or two of the other sides of the Hen House.
• Once you have decided which rackbins she should buy, calculate the total cost of the bins to be ordered.
• Route maps
• Activity 18
• Get a road atlas and draw a route map as in the example above of the main road between two major towns/cities in your region.
• Activity 18
• A city supplies a circular free bus service for its inhabitants. The bus is always on time and can be taken at any bus station at 10-minute intervals during the daylight hours. From the inner-city bus route map (not to scale)(overleaf), and the accompanying clockwise loop time-table, answer the questions:
• What does clock-wise mean?
• For how many hours of the day does this service run?
• How long does one circular route take the bus?

• Ashley wants to create a low maintenance and water efficient garden around the house. In order to do this he wants a large area without plants. He will pave this area with intermittent pebbles in cement, and with different sizes of square terracotta tiles.
• The tiles are:
• • 30 x 20 cm
• • 10 x 10 cm
• He saw these examples of garden design in a book Small Gardens for South Africa by M. Terblanche.
• Summative assessment
• He wants to have a tile path around the house with spaces between the tiles where he will sow drought resistant wonder-lawn as ground cover. And then he wants to use one of the designs from the book in front of the stoep to enlarge the paved area. He wants to create a rectangular mixed pebble stone and tile area of different geometric shapes. The area has to be twice the depth of the stoep and as wide as the house.
• He also has three succulent plants in medium-sized pots which he can place in the paved area as a focal point.
• Summative assessment
• Instructions:
• Redraw the outline of the house as above. The scale is 1 : 100.
• Design and sketch the path to scale around the house.
• Calculate how many tiles of the bigger size he will need.
• Make a rough perspective diagram of your idea of the frontal view of the house with the pavement area in front of it. Include plants in your sketch.
• Draw up a flow chart of everything you did.
• Activity 20
• Ntombusuko has just completed a three year diploma in photography in Cape Town and wants to visit Rhodes University in Grahamstown to investigate the possibility of doing a post-diploma year there. Once she has completed a fourth year, she will be awarded a degree in photography. She has to decide between renting a car and going by inter-city bus. The bus fare is R320 one way, departing daily at 06h00 or at 18h30 from Cape Town. The trip takes 7 hours by bus. She wants to see the head of the photography department during the morning of a Monday, and has to be back in Cape Town on Thursday at noon. The bus leaves Grahamstown for Cape town on a daily basis at either 05h45 or at 15h50. She has never been to Grahamstown and if possible, she wants to spend some time seeing the town. Overnight accommodation at a guest house in Grahamstown is R250 per person single or sharing.
• Activity 20
• Questions:
• Decide which bus she should take from Cape Town and on which day.
• Decide which bus she should take from Grahamstown back to Cape Town and on which day.
• Calculate the total cost of the journey, food excluded.
• She might take a friend with her for company and considers the option of renting a car. The car is charged as follows: The first 250km are free and thereafter the charge is R2,25 per kilometre. Ntombusuko sees on a map that it is 837km from Cape Town to Grahamstown. Calculate the cost of the rental for the return trip.
• Added to the car rental is the petrol to be bought along the way. The car has an approximate petrol consumption of 8 litres per 100 km and petrol costs R10,20 per litre. Calculate the cost of petrol for the trip.
• Decide which will be the more economical option for Ntombusuko.
