Y7A, Unit 2

ACTIVITY 2.1

Rounding

Here we introduce the concept of rounding and see how it is used in practical contexts.

1.

The attendance of the Arsenal v. Manchester United Charity Shield football match (1995) was quoted in newspapers in the following way. Newspaper Times Telegraph Daily Mail Sun (a) (b) Number of Spectators 68 800 68 770 69 000 70 000

Can they all be correct if they have given the number correct to a certain number of decimal places? What are the possible actual attendance figures?

2.

The number of people at a pop concert was given as 350 000 to the nearest 50 000. What is the (a) (b) minimum possible number of people attending; maximum possible number of people attending?

Extension The number of complaints received by a train operating company one year was quoted as 5500 (to the nearest 100). The next year it was quoted as 5000 (to the nearest 1000). The train company publicly announced "improved services have led to a real reduction in complaints". Are they justified in their statement?

ACTIVITY 2.2

Place Value

This is best done as a whole class activity with individual pupils taking each (large) digit card and moving themselves into the appropriate places - with the help of the class (and the teacher).

only once each time, find (a) (b) when you use the largest number that can be made the smallest number that can be made (i) 3 cards (ii) 4 cards (iii) all 5 cards. 2. Repeat the first problem using the digits;

3. Repeat the problem again now using the digits;

ACTIVITY 2.3

Here we show how numbers given to a certain number of decimal places, are used in context.

1.

Four students got the following results from a measurement in a science experiment: Ben Sergier Adam Chris (a) (b) Can they all be correct? What are the possible values of the measurements if given to an accuracy of 5 decimal places? 4.754 4.8 4.75 4.755

2.

The height of a pupil was given as 123.4 cm to the nearest mm. What is the (a) (b) minimum possible value for the height of the pupil; maximum possible value for the height of the pupil?

Extension A student suggested that an easy way to give a number to a given number of decimal places was to do it stage by stage. For example, to calculate 4.3412 to one decimal place, you work it out in the following way

4.341 4.34 4.3 4.2412 (to 2.d.p.) (1 d.p.) (to 3.d.p.)

3. Merge the two sets of numbers together to form one set of numbers, in increasing order.

Extension Get each member of the class to write a two or three decimal number (starting with 0. ) on a sheet of A4. Collect all these in and organise the class into groups of equal size, say 7, 8, 9 or 10. Give out all the numbers (face down) to each pupil, and see how fast each group can get these sets of numbers into the correct increasing order.
