# CTE Resource Center - Verso - Production Systems Task 1352643111

CTE Resource Center - Verso

Virginia’s CTE Resource Center

Construct models and/or prototypes.


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?

Related Standards of Learning



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.


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


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.
