Design a Table
In this Nuffield exploration students are asked to design a table for a group of 5 people for daily use. The table must be extendable to accommodate 8 to 10 people for some occasions
The key processes developed are:
*Representing - recognising where mathematics can help with the table design, for example: interpreting data, measuring and using scale drawing.
*Analysing - looking at the data already available, using it in combination with their own measurements and calculations to create an appropriate product.
*Interpreting and evaluating - considering how the design meets the given criteria and whether any modifications are needed.
*Communicating - producing a clear design and explanatory commentary.
