    • Instructions to Student
    • You have been asked to construct the frame and plywood outer covering for the front and sides of a dormer window.
    • You must now estimate how much timber and sheeting you will need for the frame and the plywood covering and then go on to cost the materials you will use.
    • The following 1:50 scale drawings give you an indication of the size and shapes of the parts you have to make. The positions of the timber frame are shown.

  • 15. Construction Area for full scale 0.001235 m 2 x 50 2 = 3.1 m 2 Cost = 3.1 m 2 x £1.50/m 2 = £4.63
  • 16.
    • Instructions to Student
    • Your workshop has been sent an order for the manufacture of 100 pieces of sheet steel, each made with a hole in the middle to the following size and shape.
    • Calculate the area of steel needed for each piece and then the total area of steel sheet needed for the whole order.
    • The steel pieces are to be shipped in crates that can hold a maximum weight of 50kg. you have been sent a sample of the steel – measuring 100 mm x 100 mm and it weighs 200 g.
    • What is the largest no of finished steel pieces that can be put into each crate for shipping?
    Engineering
  • 17. Engineering
  • 18. Engineering The app – as it appears in the iTunes Store
  • 19. Engineering 1000 mm x 550 mm
  • 20. Engineering 200 mm x 200 mm
  • 21. Engineering 550,000 cm 2 – 40,000 cm 2 = 510,000 cm 2 This converts to 0.51 by using the area converter of the TouchCalc app
  • 22. Engineering The sample of sheet metal is 100 mm x 100 mm And weighs 200 g
  • 23. Engineering In other words: 0.01 m 2 is 200g So - 1 m 2 is 20kg Therefore, the weight of one piece with the calculated area of 0.51 m 2 is 10.2kg
  • 24. Engineering If one 0.51 m 2 piece weighs 10.2Kg Then the packing box can take: 50kg ÷ 10.2kg = 4.9 or no more than 4 whole sheets
  • 25.
    • Instructions to Student
    • You are part of a team that has been asked to record the numbers of various tree species along a set of evenly spaced 100 m long transects (lines) in an area of woodland. The transect has been broken up into 10 m lengths for ease of management of the task.
    • In each 10 m section, identify and record the name of any trees within 1 m either side of the transect line.
    • Record your results in the table.
