§7.1 From description to formula
First there comes an example.
See next slide, showing an exciting nature event.

#### Slide 2 -Slide

a. We read this text together.
b. Answer the question below in the next slide.

#### Slide 3 -Slide

Roughly how far away is the thunderstorm?
A
2 km
B
2 + 2/3 km
C
2.5 km
D
3 km

#### Slide 4 -Quiz

Solution:
It takes the thunder 3 seconds to travel 1 km.
So if you hear the thunder after 8 seconds, then it is
8 : 3 = 2  2/3 km away.
However, because the question said 'roughly' (ongeveer) also
2.5 km is a good answer.

#### Slide 5 -Slide

If you divide the time in seconds the thunder takes to reach you by 3, you get the distance in km.

#### Slide 6 -Slide

This Rule in Words is changed into a Formula now:
If you divide the time in seconds the thunder takes to reach you by 3, you get the distance in km. (=Rule in Words)

time in seconds : 3 = distance in km (= Formula)

#### Slide 7 -Slide

What does a Formula have, but a Rule in Words does not?

#### Slide 8 -Mind map

Solution:
A Formula has arithmetic symbols like:
+           -              x      and      :
(What is Described(=beschreven) only in a Rule in Words, is made into a Calculation in a Formula.)

#### Slide 10 -Slide

Let's make a Formula now!
In the next exercise you get some information.
A) to make a Formula and then
B) to make a Calculation with it.

Formula .... ?

#### Slide 13 -Mind map

The correct Formula is:

number of balls x 60 + 250 = weight,  or
250 + number of balls x 60 = weight,  or
weight = number of balls x 60 + 250
So you see that there are more ways to write it down!

#### Slide 15 -Slide

Calculate the weight of a box containing 6 balls.
The Formula is:
number of balls x 60 + 250 = weight
A
600
B
590
C
580
D
610

Solution:

#### Slide 17 -Slide

Summarising:
Sometimes you have a Description or a Formula in Words.
You can change this into a Formula.
In a Formula you can fill in a given number, to get an outcome.
Like we just did.
