The day is delivered through a number of workshops:
Measurement Mayhem - pupils will be required to put their decision making skills to practice when they choose the correct equipment from a range of our measuring tools and measure accurately realistic engine parts and check accuracy against required tolerances.
Dotty about Data - A data collection exercise which is completed on their tour of the manufacturing centre, they will be required to present the gathered data and evaluate their findings.
Team Challenge - A practical problem which challenges pupils to build a working model from 3 different options within a fixed timescale and budget. They will have to calculate the cost of production and make a decision on the correct model to build.
Maths Matters provides a unique opportunity to bring your maths curriculum to life and allow your pupils to put their skills into practice during their visit to Jaguar Land Rover’s Engine Manufacturing Centre, Wolverhampton.
