**Procedure:**

- The rate, given as a percent.
- To find the discount, multiply the rate by the original price.
- To find the sale price, subtract the discount from original price.

### Finding the Perimeter

**Mean, Median, Mode**

**Mean:** Also known as the average.

The mean is found by adding up all of the given data and dividing by the number of data entries.

**Example:** The Year 10 Maths class recently had a Mathematics test and the grades were as follows:

78

66

82 464 / 6 = 77.3

89

75

Hence, 77.3 is the mean average of the class.

+ 74

464

**Median:** The median is the middle number.

First you arrange the numbers in order from lowest to highest, then you find the middle number by crossing off the numbers until you reach the middle.

**Example:** ** – **use the above data to find the median:

66 74 75 78 82 89

– as you can see we have two numbers, there is no **middle **number. What do we do?

It is simple; we take the two middle numbers and find the average, ( or mean ).

75 + 78 = 153

153 / 2 = 76.5

Hence, the middle number is 76.5.

**Mode:** — this is the number that occurs most often.

**Example:** – find the mode of the following data:

78 56 68 92 84 76 74 56 68 66 78 72 66

65 53 61 62 78 84 61 90 87 77 62 88 81

The mode is 78.

**How to Find the Mean**

The mean is the **average** of the numbers.

It is easy to calculate: **add up** all the numbers, then **divide by how many** numbers there are.

In other words it is the **sum** divided by the **count**.

### Example 1: What is the Mean of these numbers?

- Add the numbers:
**6 + 11 + 7 = 24** - Divide by
*how many*numbers (there are 3 numbers):**24 / 3 = 8**

**The Mean is 8**

Why Does This Work?

It is because 6, 11 and 7 added together is the same as 3 lots of 8:

It is like you are “flattening out” the numbers

### Example 2: Look at these numbers:

There are fifteen numbers.

The mean is equal to 330 / 15 = 22

**The mean of the above numbers is 22**

## CARTESIAN PLANE

The Cartesian coordinate system was developed by the mathematician Descartes during an illness. As he lay in bed sick, he saw a fly buzzing around on the ceiling, which was made of square tiles. As he watched he realized that he could describe the position of the fly by the ceiling tile he was on. After this experience he developed the coordinate plane to make it easier to describe the position of objects.

GENERAL COORDINATES:

MAZE GAME:

GRAPHIT

Students plot these coordinates:

▪ (3,7),(3,4),(8,4)

▪ (18,3),(16,5),(12,5),(?,?), (?,?)

▪ (13,12),(15,14),(12,17),(?,?), (?,?)

▪ (7,14),(6,11),(7,8),(?,?), (?,?)

▪ (15,9),(19,9),(16,11),(?,?), (?,?)

▪ (11,3),(15,2),(16,6),(?,?), (?,?)

▪ (9,16),(2,9),(9,2),(?,?), (?,?)

(?,?) = using the coordinates you have already received solve the missing coordinates to plot a quadrilateral shape on the Cartesian plane.

# CAPACITY

The litre is the basic unit for measuring capacity in the metric system.

1000 millilitres (mL) = 1 litre (1 L)

1000 litres (L) = 1 kilolitre (1 kL)

Discuss liquids that are usually measured in:

- millilitres e.g. medicine, cans of drink
- litres e.g. cartons of milk, bottles of juice
- kilolitres e.g. water usage bill, pools

**Research the capacity of: **

- Sydney Harbour
- Sugarloaf Dam
- Thomson Reservoir
- Maroondah Reservoir
- a large rainwater tank
- a petrol tanker
- the hot water system at home

## Elena and Alisha

August 29, 2011 at 12:23 pm (6 years ago)We think that the ‘Diaper Derby’ is excellent! It is really fun, you answer division questions of the level that you choose. If you answer them correctly you move forward. If you answer enough correctly you win the race! You also get to choose how your baby looks and what kind of walker it has. After the race is over and you see which place you came in it, it will tell you what questions of that level you need to work on. It is a really fantastic game to work on if you want to practice your division tables!!!! 🙂 🙂 :-)!!!
