Technology

Grade 6

Structures

Module 9

Design a basic frame structure

Design a frame structure using a sheet of cardboard

What is the problem?

Due to the fact that every learner has to compile a portfolio of his/her best work in a grade during the year, it can cause a great mess if your pages of the 10 different learning areas get mixed up when you want to replace pages. Therefore it is important that you keep the three pages of each learning area together by using a paper clip in your portfolio so that you will not waste unnecessary time when you want to replace pages.

What is the need?

You will need a small container in which you can keep your paper clips and have extra available when you need to replace pages. Since nothing suitable is available in the shops at present, you will have to design and construct your own container.

What is the instruction?

Design and make a small container for paper clips that you can keep on your desk. Use felt-tipped pens to decorate the lid with a simple geometric pattern and see to it that the lid fits tightly.

What are the limitations?

You may only use one piece of A4 cardboard, a wooden strip of 0,5 m long, and 1 cm by 1 cm, paper glue and felt-tipped pens with which to decorate it.

Summary of the need/design brief

Assignment 1:

[lo 1.4]

Complete:

I am going to design and make a neat and attractive container that can hold_____________

It can be made of _________________________________ and ______________________

for use in the ___________________________________ The lid will be decorated with a

_______________________________ pattern with _______________________________ .

Research and investigation:

Assignment 2:

Bring to class as many small containers as possible in which paper clips could be kept and draw at least three examples with labels. take care that their shapes, sizes and the material used for each container differ as much as possible.

[lo 1.2]

Design:

Assignment 3:

Design and draw the frame for the container on the provided grid paper.

[lo 1.5]

Design and draw the frame for the container on the provided grid paper. You are going to use the small wooden bar. The inner dimensions of the small container must not be more than 10 cm by 10 cm and not smaller than 5 cm by 5 cm because it must be able to contain at least 10 paper clips quite easily. Colour the small strips that are of the same length, in one colour. Also indicate the inner and outer dimensions of your design. Draw a circle around your final choice.

  • Remember: Assume that one square is 1 cm by 1 cm, so it is not necessary to use a ruler. Keep in mind that the longer sides of the frame include the shorter sides.

Assignment 4:

Design and draw simple geometric shapes with which you would like to decorate the lid. you may choose and use one basic shape only. draw it the same size, as you would have it on the lid.

[lo 1.6]

Assessment

Learning Outcomes(LOs)

LO 1

TECHNOLOGICAL PROCESSES AND SKILLS

The learner will be able to apply technological processes and skills ethically and responsibly using appropriate information and communication technologies

Assessment Standards(ASs)

We know this when the learner:

1.2 finds out about existing products relevant to a problem, need or opportunity, and identifies and compares their design aspects (e.g. who it is for, what it is for, what it looks like, what it is made of, how well it works, whether it will affect the environment);

1.4 writes or communicates a design brief for the development of a product related to a given problem, need or opportunity that clarifies the technological purposes of the solution;

1.5 suggests and records at least two alternative solutions to the problem, need or opportunity that link clearly to the design brief and to given specifications and constraints (e.g. people, purpose, safety, environmental impact, appearance);

1.6 chooses one of these solutions, giving valid reasons for the choice, and further develops the choice with graphics and/or modelling.

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct

is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?

industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
