Introduction to fire detection with the Internet of Things
Within this one hour resource, students play the role of fire safety employees whose task is to find the most efficient placement for detectors. Students are given constraints within which they should work and a series of problems to solve leading to an algebraic solution to the problem.
The activity is based on the 'art-gallery' problem. To successfully complete the challenges, students will have to work strategically, employ a range of problem solving skills and use the properties of polygons.
The resource features a presentation, teacher notes and associated worksheets.
