SCENARIO

The world's climate is changing. Ice is melting and glaciers are disappearing. Heat waves, storms and floods are becoming more extreme. Our planet is getting warmer and even a small increase in temperature can change our climate. When our climate changes, we are all affected.

Your class is launching an awareness programme to make learners aware of the effects of global warming.

[16]

QUESTION 3: SPREADSHEET

Use formulae and/or functions for ALL calculations in the spreadsheet. Use absolute cell references only where necessary to ensure that formulae are correct when you copy it to other cells in the same column (copy down). All formulae and/or functions should be inserted in such a manner that the correct results will still be obtained, even if changes are made to the existing data.

Data was gathered about extreme temperatures and rainfall.

3.4 Use a combination of functions to extract the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit (131oF) from cell C4 (the degrees Celsius column) and insert it into cell D4 (in the column for degrees Fahrenheit).
NOTE: Ensure that the correct results will still be obtained, even if the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit in cell C4 changes (for example to 27oC or 80oF).

HINT: First find the position of the space. All the data after the space must appear in the column for degrees Fahrenheit. You may use any of the empty columns, such as columns K and L, for calculating any interim results. (7)

3.5 The following formula is used to convert degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit:

oC × 9 ÷ 5 + 32 = oF

Add a formula in cell D7 using the temperature in degrees Celsius in cell C7 and convert it to degrees Fahrenheit. (2)

3.6 Use a function/formula in cell G4 to determine the number of full days that have passed since the date of the highest temperature (cell F4) experienced in Africa.

For example, if the date of the highest temperature was Monday, 11 February 1935, the number of days that have passed would be 29 470. (5)

3.7 Change the page setup as follows:

  • Set the range A2:D32 as the print area.
  • Use a spreadsheet feature to ensure that all the data will fit on one sheet.

    NOTE: Do NOT print the spreadsheet. (2)

Save and close the 3Extreme_Uiters spreadsheet. [28]

QUESTION 4: SPREADSHEET

Use formulae and/or functions for ALL calculations in the spreadsheet. Use absolute cell references only where necessary to ensure that formulae are correct when you copy it to other cells in the same column (copy down). All formulae and/or functions should be inserted in such a manner that the correct results will still be obtained, even if changes are made to the existing data.

A study was done about all the species threatened with extinction. A summary of these threatened species has been stored in a spreadsheet.

Open the 4Species_Spesies spreadsheet and work in the Spec_Spes worksheet.

4.1 Change the height of row 1 to 30 pt. (1)

4.2 Use a VLOOKUP function in cell B6 to determine to which type 'Birds' in cell A6 belongs by using the table in the Type_Tipe worksheet.

Ensure that this function will work correctly if copied to the other cells. (4)

4.3 Add a function in cell C10 to calculate the total number of vertebrate species. (2)

4.4 Add a function in cell L5 to calculate the percentage of the number of mammals threatened in 2014 (column K) in relation to the total number of species evaluated (cell D10). (2)

4.5 Insert a function in cell N6 to determine the severity level by using the severity percentage in column M as follows:

  • A severity percentage of more than 50% is classified as 'Very severe'.
  • A severity percentage of more than 15% and less than or equal to 50% is classified as 'Severe'.
  • A severity percentage of less than or equal to 15% is classified as 'Moderate'. (5)

4.6 Create a pie chart in cell O2 to display the severity threat rate per total species, as shown in the example below.

46catp1

NOTE:

  • The data used in the pie chart is shown in columns A and M.
  • The title '% of endangered types' appears approximately in the middle of the pie chart.
  • The legend appears in the bottom left-hand corner.
  • Data labels are used, as shown above.

5.1 Edit the Survey_Opname table as follows:

5.1.1 Change the field size of the Type field to 10. (1)

5.1.2 There are currently two primary keys set on the table. Remove the primary key that is not suitable so that only ONE suitable primary key remains.

HINT: Look at the data stored in these fields. (1)

5.1.3 Create an input mask on the ID field to ensure that the user enters a code as follows:

  • Five compulsory capital letters
  • Followed by at least one, but possibly two, digits

    EXAMPLE: REPHE99 or MOLAL4 can be entered as valid codes. (5)

5.1.4 The Protected field does not display the 'Yes' and 'No' values in the drop-down list box as intended.

Change the lookup field properties to correct the error. (1)

5.1.5 Create a new lookup field called FullStatus.

Use the data in the Name field of the Code_Kode table to provide the values for the new field. (4)

Save and close the Survey_Opname table.

5.2 Create a form called frm5_2 based on the Survey_Opname table as follows:

  • Include all the fields of the Survey_Opname table.

5.5 Research indicates that the population of each species will decrease by 1% every year. Open the qry5_5 query.

  • Display only the records where a value for the common name (CName) is given.
  • Insert a calculated field called NewPop that will calculate the new population after its size has been decreased by 1%.
  • Display this number as a whole number.

Save and close the qry5_5 query. (7)

5.6 Create a report called rep5_6 based on the Survey_Opname table.

The report must display information using a layout similar to the one in the example below.

56catp1

NOTE:

  • The formatting is not required to exactly match the formatting in the example above.
  • Ensure that the correct data appears.
