Module 1: Use different number bases and measurement units

ryanrori January 25, 2021

After completing this module, the learner will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the use of different number bases and measurement units and an awareness of error in the context of relevant calculations, by successfully completing the following:

  • Do conversions between binary and decimal numbers correctly
  • Do basic addition and subtraction calculations in the binary number system correctly
  • Explain practical applications of the decimal and binary system correctly
  • Relate the prefixes indicating magnitude in measurements correctly to the decimal system
  • Apply conversions between related units in different measurement systems correctly in real-life contexts
  • Ensure that symbols for irrational numbers such as 7c and 42 are left in formulae or steps to calculations except where approximations are required
  • Provide descriptions of the effect of rounding prematurely in calculations
  • Determine the desired degree of accuracy in relation to the practical context
  • Express the final value of a calculation in terms of the required unit
