Objectives

Outcomes At the end of this module, you will be able to:


Demonstrate knowledge of different elementary methods of data
collection.
Collect and report on collected agricultural data by using prescribed
collection methods.
Use and maintain data collection equipment correctly.
Apply health and safety measures applicable to the collection method
and equipment.
Facilitation The programme is very practical and aims to provide practical tools and skills
Methodology for adult learners. The methodology should ensure that:
The learning environment is physically and psychologically
comfortable.
Contact training periods are short and varied to avoid boredom.
Learner expectations are articulated and clarified and managed by the
learner and facilitator.
The experience of participants is acknowledged and drawn on in the
learning programme.

Facilitation, rather than teaching, is used to allow participants to
participate fully.
The facilitator balances the presentation of new material, debate and
discussion in such a way that the outcomes of the module are met,
while ensuring that all participants are valued and is able to contribute
to the learning process.
The learning will be problem-oriented, personalized and accepting of
participants needs for self-direction and personal responsibility.
The module presented in a way that allows a participant to participate
fully in the language of their choice.
The facilitation process accommodates participants who may not be
literate, or who are not literate in English.
The contact session uses a participatory methodology. This is appropriate for
adult audiences who come with a wide range of experiences and skills. It also
accommodates a broader range of learning styles. Some techniques that can
be used include:
Method Description
Structured learning experience Participants engage with a complex
game or activities that represent real-life
situations that they may encounter in the
course of their work as a Ward
Committee member.
Case study This is a realistic story or real-life
situation that has taken place, in which
participants need to apply their
knowledge and skills to practice how
they can deal with the issues presented.
Group work Participants work on tasks in their
groups and report their findings back to
plenary.
Lecture The facilitator presents a short talk
(maximum of 10 minutes) to introduce a
new subject, to provide details, or to
wrap up a session.
Discussion This is a free exchange of ideas or
experiences on a particular topic. It may

4|Page
be between the facilitator and the
participants or between the participants.
Brainstorming Participants generate a number of ideas
on a particular subject or question. It
may be used to gather different opinions
or to find out what participants know
about a particular topic.
Role-play Participants are asked to act out a
scenario where each participant plays a
particular role. A role-play may be used
to illustrate how people respond in
different situations.
Panel discussion This is a planned presentation by one or
more experts. It may be followed by a
discussion session or a round of
questions.

Write the mathematical sentence (the equation).

12(x) + 9 = 105

Solve the mathematical sentence (the equation).

x + (x + 7) = 45
11 | P a g e ALL COPYRIGHT RESERVED
Now we solve the mathematical sentence (the equation).
2x + 7 = 45 (combine like terms)
2x = 38 (subtract 7 from both sides of the equation)
x = 19 (divide both sides of the equation by 2)
Jake has 19 marbles!
12(x) + 9 = 105

Now we solve the mathematical sentence (the equation).


12x +9 = 105
12x = 96 (subtract 9 from both sides)
x=8 (divide both sides by 12)
The number we are looking for is 8.

If you are subtracting a negative number, move your finger to the right
as many places as the value of that number. For example, if you 3 - -4 = 7 are

8 Analyse the relationship between rational numbers and integers 5
Whole numbers are easy to remember. They're not fractions, they're not decimals, they're simply whole numbers. The
only thing that makes them different than natural numbers is that we include the zero when we are referring to whole
numbers. However, some mathematicians will also include the zero in natural numbers and I'm not going to argue the
point. I'll accept both if a reasonable argument is presented. Whole numbers are 1, 2, 3, 4, and so on.

Rational Numbers
Rational numbers have integers AND fractions AND decimals. Now you can see that numbers can belong to more
than one classification group. Rational numbers can also have repeating decimals which you will see be written like
this: 0.54444444... which simply means it repeats forever, sometimes you will see a line drawn over the decimal place
which means it repeats forever, instead of having a ...., the final number will have a line drawn above it.
Integers
Integers can be whole numbers or they can be whole numbers with a negative signs in front of them. Individuals often
refer to integers as the positive and negative numbers. Integers are -4, -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 and so on.

rational numbers: if a and b are integers (b is not 0) then a/b is a rational numbers

real numbers: the completion of the rational numbers (a bit more sophisticated to explain fully)
