# CTE Resource Center - Verso - Production Systems Task 1352643111

# Construct models and/or prototypes.

## Definition

Construction of scaled replicas, full-sized models, and/or production prototype should include some of the following elements:

• Materials with similar properties of those that are proposed for production
• Functional components
• Design standards, including form, function, and quality
• Rapid prototyping

Construction may also include the use of electronic models and virtual reality to interact with the models.

## Process/Skill Questions

• What is a prototype?
• How does a prototype differ from a mock-up?
• What are some factors to consider when determining the type of prototype to construct?

## Mathematics

### G.3

The student will solve problems involving symmetry and transformation. This will include
1. investigating and using formulas for determining distance, midpoint, and slope;
2. applying slope to verify and determine whether lines are parallel or perpendicular;
3. investigating symmetry and determining whether a figure is symmetric with respect to a line or a point; and
4. determining whether a figure has been translated, reflected, rotated, or dilated, using coordinate methods.

### G.13

The student will use surface area and volume of three-dimensional objects to solve practical problems.

### G.14

The student will apply the concepts of similarity to two- or three-dimensional geometric figures. This will include
1. comparing ratios between lengths, perimeters, areas, and volumes of similar figures;
2. determining how changes in one or more dimensions of a figure affect area and/or volume of the figure;
3. determining how changes in area and/or volume of a figure affect one or more dimensions of the figure; and
4. solving problems, including practical problems, about similar geometric figures.
