This Core Maths activity explores how the production of a doll's house can be organised by using a Gantt chart. The objective of the activity is for students to produce a Gantt chart for a project of their own choice. No specific prior knowledge of Gantt charts is needed, the task mainly requires number skills and problem solving.
The presentation gives an example of how a Gantt chart can be use to illustrate how a simple project can be organised. It then shows how more than one worker on the project can shorten the time needed. There are extensive notes about the teaching points included in the slides.
The teachers' notes provide an overview of the task and suggestions for extensions.
