  2. 2. Contents <ul><li>Construction </li></ul><ul><li>Engineering </li></ul><ul><li>Geography </li></ul><ul><li>Languages </li></ul><ul><li>Other Apps </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Instructions to Student </li></ul><ul><li>You have been asked to construct the frame and plywood outer covering for the front and sides of a dormer window. </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul>Construction
  4. 4. <ul><li>Scale 1:50 </li></ul>Construction The original drawings presented to the student
  5. 5. Construction The measuring app – as it appears in the iTunes Store
  6. 6. Construction Measuring the drawing using the ruler tool from the iHandy Carpenter app
  7. 7. Construction The measurements from the Ruler app shown on the drawing 65 50 50 45 32 32
  8. 8. Construction The app – as it appears in the iTunes Store
  9. 9. Construction The inputs to the TriangleCalc app The calculations from the TriangleCalc app 65 50 50 45 32 32
  10. 10. Construction The contents screen from the TouchCalc app
  11. 11. Construction
  12. 12. Construction
  13. 13. Construction The TouchCalc app – as it appears in the iTunes Store
  14. 14. Construction Area from drawing = 0.001235 m 2 Area for full scale 0.001235 m 2 x 50 2 = 3.1 m 2
  15. 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. 16. <ul><li>Instructions to Student </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>Calculate the area of steel needed for each piece and then the total area of steel sheet needed for the whole order. </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>What is the largest no of finished steel pieces that can be put into each crate for shipping? </li></ul>Engineering

  18. 18. Engineering The app – as it appears in the iTunes Store
  19. 19. Engineering 1000 mm x 550 mm
  20. 20. Engineering 200 mm x 200 mm
  21. 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. 22. Engineering The sample of sheet metal is 100 mm x 100 mm And weighs 200 g
  23. 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. 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. 25. <ul><li>Instructions to Student </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>In each 10 m section, identify and record the name of any trees within 1 m either side of the transect line. </li></ul><ul><li>Record your results in the table. </li></ul>Geography
  26. 26. <ul><li>For this learning activity, the following apps could be used: </li></ul><ul><li>IdentifyTree </li></ul><ul><li>QuickOffice – for creating a results table to be used on the spot </li></ul>Geography
