Using the table, it’s easy enough to determine that 2 pounds is the equivalent of 900 grams. Unfortunately the possible answers given are reported in kilograms not grams. Before choosing an answer the candidate will have to convert 900 grams into kilograms. This of course requires the candidate to know something about the relationship between grams and kilograms. e. the suffix ‘kilo-’ usually means a thousand, as in kilometre, kilojoule, kilobyte and kilogram). From this knowledge there are a number of ways to do the conversion.

2 pounds. 3 pounds. 42 About the tests Question 2 Half a pound is closest to A 125 grams. B 225 grams. C 325 grams. D 425 grams. 09 kilograms. 9 kilograms. 0 kilograms. 0 kilograms. For Question 1 the candidate needs to know how to use a table to look up a value and then to do some estimating or rounding off. A small twist is that when she looks at the table for 500 grams, she finds that there is no entry for 500. Her task is to find the closest entry. Thinking about close in terms of ‘a little more’ or ‘a little less’, the candidate might narrow the search down to 495 or 540 grams.

In some curriculum documents this is referred to as ‘working mathematically’. In the worked examples given in the next section, you will see that often these two aspects are combined within the same unit and even within the same question. In particular, applying mathematical ideas and problem-solving often require calculations, measurements and estimates as the first step. For those tests and levels that also include science questions, there is a similar approach in that the questions test the candidates’ knowledge of science and their ability to ‘work scientifically’, applying scientific thinking to solve problems.
