This challenge gives students the opportunity to explore the work that engineers do, putting into practice...

What Is It?

The Nuffield Foundation provide this resource which can be used to introduce the idea of representing objects using plans and elevations. Students will have the opportunity to identify everyday objects photographed from plan and elevation views, draw 3D sketches of solids from their plan and elevation views, as...

Perimeter and Area

The Nuffield Foundation provides this resource which reviews the perimeter and area of rectangles and shapes made from rectangles. The activity can be introduced by viewing the slideshow and a student information sheet, which contains the main points is also provided. The activity cards allow students to...

Outdoor Gig
