1.2. Gardening problem
1.2.1. The area of the strip that has been lost
Area of the lost strip = 3m x 1m = 3m
2
1.2.2. Strip attached to the east side

1.2.3. What has Jamal not considered if he wants to keep his garden
rectangular?
He must reduce the length of the attached strip to 2cm.
1.2.4. To ensure that the garden remains rectangular, what will the area of the
strip on the east side need to be for this to be possible?
Area of strip on the east side needs to be: 2m
×
1m = 2m
2
1.2.5. What is the area of the new garden? Does this area differ from the
original area at all? If so in what way?
Area of the original garden =
l
2
= 3m
×
3m
= 9m
2
Area of a new garden = (3m
+
1m)
×
2m
= 4m
×
2m
= 8m
2
Yes, they are different. The area of the new garden is 1unit less that the area of
the original garden. The original garden is a square and the new garden is a
rectangle, this is the reason for the difference of the two gardens.
1.3 Devising a three-part lesson format for an activity in the classroom
ABCD
is a rectangle where
BD
= 15
cm
and
BC
= 9
cm
.
A
B
D
C
Determine the:
a) Perimeter of
ABCD
b) Area of
ABCD

1.3.1. How would you teach the activity as a problem? Explain.
The activity will be a class work and learners will work in pairs. The activity will be
presented on the class chalk board for all the learners to see. Every learner will
write the activity in his/her own class work book, but they will discuss in pairs
before writing the solutions.
