This module uses the theme of sport to work with measurement of length, conversions between different units of length, and doing calculations with length and the Hindu-Arabic Numeration system. It then introduces Linda and Makhaya who are friends attending the same primary school in Cullinan near Pretoria. Linda is the school’s champion girl sprinter, and Makhaya is the champion boy long distance runner. The two of them investigate records set at the Olympics, by both men and women; they look at whether women can run as fast as men; they look at diet, at promoting team spirit, at relay races, and at long distance races. Teacher's guide and learner's materials included.
