Why do this
could be used when time, length and distance are
being introduced or discussed. It also requires careful thinking to
work out how the problem should be tackled.
How long would it take Nirmala to get to the market? And how
long would it take Riki?
At what time do they want to meet in the market?
Learners could vary the speed or the distance and possibly work out
a table of results.
Starting by working out how long each one takes to travel the 9
kilometres will help some children. Others may find it
useful to draw a sketch map.
