This unit standard does not replace any other unit standard and is not replaced by any other unit standard. 

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
People credited with this unit standard are able to:
  • Describe and interpret the environment geometrically
  • Solve measurement problems aimed at developing rules of calculation in the contexts of perimeter, area and volume
  • Describe routes and locations on maps with existing co-ordinate systems
  • Draw simple objects in perspective 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
    It is assumed that learners undertaking the learning of this unit standard have prior knowledge and skill in working with shape, space measurement and reading and writing at ABET level 2.

    This information shows the current accreditations (i.e. those not past their accreditation end dates), and is the most complete record available to SAQA as of today. Some Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionaries have a lag in their recording systems for provider accreditation, in turn leading to a lag in notifying SAQA of all the providers that they have accredited to offer qualifications and unit standards, as well as any extensions to accreditation end dates. The relevant Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionary should be notified if a record appears to be missing from here.
