This unit standard does not replace any other unit standard and is not replaced by any other unit standard. |
PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD |
People credited with this unit standard are able to:
Form and use algebraic equations and inequalities to represent and solve practical and abstract problems; Manipulate algebraic expressions to find equivalent forms; and Select and use algebraic formulae to solve problems. |
LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING |
The following learning at ABET Numeracy level 4 is assumed to be in place:
Describe and represent relationships in a variety of contexts using simple algebraic expressions and/or equations. |
UNIT STANDARD OUTCOME HEADER |
Form and use algebraic equations and inequalities |
Specific Outcomes and Assessment Criteria: |
SPECIFIC OUTCOME 1 |
Form and use algebraic equations and inequalities to represent and solve problems. |
OUTCOME RANGE |
Simple linear equations and inequalities. |
ASSESSMENT CRITERIA |
ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1 |
1. The problem is represented completely through equations or inequalities, which are consistent with the problem. |
ASSESSMENT CRITERION 2 |
2. The concepts of equations and inequalities are explained. |
ASSESSMENT CRITERION 3 |
3. Situations requiring the use of equations as opposed to inequalities, and vice versa, are identified. |
ASSESSMENT CRITERION 4 |
4. Algebraic rotation, conventions and terminology are used correctly. |
ASSESSMENT CRITERION 5 |
5. The solution is correct in terms of the problem context. |
ASSESSMENT CRITERION 6 |
6. The solution is verified through substitution or other verification processes. |
SPECIFIC OUTCOME 2 |
Manipulate algebraic expressions to find equivalent forms. |
OUTCOME RANGE |
Common factors, products and grouping using associative, distributive and commutative properties. |
ASSESSMENT CRITERIA |
ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1 |
1. The manipulated form is equivalent to the original form. |
ASSESSMENT CRITERION RANGE |
The original expression is manipulated to achieve at least two different forms. |
SPECIFIC OUTCOME 3 |
Select and use algebraic formulae to solve problems. |
OUTCOME RANGE |
Substitution into any formula, solve for one variable, supplied formulae from any context. |
ASSESSMENT CRITERIA |
ASSESSMENT CRITERION 1 |
1. The correct formula is selected in terms of the problem context. |
ASSESSMENT CRITERION 2 |
2. The formula is applied correctly to obtain a valid solution. |
ASSESSMENT CRITERION 3 |
3. Units are used correctly. |
Critical Cross-field Outcomes (CCFO): |
UNIT STANDARD CCFO IDENTIFYING |
Identify and solve mathematical problems using algebraic notation, conventions and terminology in which responses display that responsible decisions using critical and creative thinking have been made. |
UNIT STANDARD CCFO ORGANISING |
Organise and manage oneself and one`s activities responsibly and effectively. |
UNIT STANDARD CCFO COLLECTING |
Collect, analyse, organise and critically evaluate algebraic notations, conventions and terminology to solve problems. |
UNIT STANDARD CCFO COMMUNICATING |
Communicate mathematical symbols effectively. |
UNIT STANDARD CCFO DEMONSTRATING |
Understand the world as a set of related systems by recognising that problem-solving contexts do not exist in isolation. |

PROVIDERS CURRENTLY ACCREDITED TO OFFER THIS UNIT STANDARD: |
This information shows the current accreditations (i.e. those not past their accreditation end dates), and is the most complete record available to SAQA as of today. Some Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionaries have a lag in their recording systems for provider accreditation, in turn leading to a lag in notifying SAQA of all the providers that they have accredited to offer qualifications and unit standards, as well as any extensions to accreditation end dates. The relevant Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionary should be notified if a record appears to be missing from here. |
