Air Tracking of a Ground Object

This engineering resource, produced by Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI) for the Royal Academy of Engineering, asks the question: how can a camera, mounted on a helicopter, be used to track the location of a ground-based object?

A number of discussion ideas are considered before using 2D and 3D...

Power Demand

This engineering resource, produced by Mathematic in Education and Industry (MEI) for the Royal Academy of Engineering, asks the question: how can you predict future power requirements?

Students are required to complete a table by substituting values into a formula and plot a graph. The interactive file can...

Resistor Production

This engineering resource, produced by Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI) for the Royal Academy of Engineering, asks the question: how can production outcome data from a manufacturing process be analysed to optimise the process?

Students consider the outputs of resistors to see the outcomes form a...

Dangerous Rain

In this activity students consider the questions:
• Where does rain water go?
• How can we model the flow of rainwater in real life?
• What can be done to prevent flooding?
• When is rain dangerous?
• Where do floods come from?
• How can we reduce the damage that...

Desertec

The generation of energy with solar power plants in the desert is a highly controversial issue. In this activity students consider the questions:

• Which arguments do the opponents and the proponents put forward?
• To what extent do solar power plants have the potential to contribute to meeting Europe’...

Food

In this activity students consider the questions:

• Which components of food are healthy and which are not?
• Why should we care about this?
• What are the effects of the individual components of food on the human body?
• What do our families eat? What are the likely effects of what we...

Light Bulbs

In this activity students make a comparison of conventional and energy saving light bulbs and ask the questions:

• How can individuals contribute towards the needs of society?
• Why have traditional light bulbs been abolished by the EU?

In Germany, as in many other European countries,...

Transformation of Functions

This interactive excel program allows students to explore the relationship between the transformation of functions and the associated graphs. Functions explored are straight lines, quadratic and cubic functions as well as sine and cosine curves. Each type of function...

The Liverpool Robotic Telescope

Produced in 2015, these materials are themed around the work of the Liverpool Robotic Telescope and the National Schools’ Observatory (NSO). Through the National Schools’ Observatory (NSO) web site, registered schools can request specific observations to be...

Online ecology two - the distribution of species across a field

This online ecology practical, by SAPS, is designed to give students an opportunity to see how systematic sampling can be used to

  • investigate changes in species richness across a footpath
  • the distribution of species across a footpath

These online exercises are not intended as a...
