*Remote Learning Projects*

(6)

We have put together a series of 6 student projects which can be used either in the classroom or at home. These projects are based on the concept of Big Questions.

A Big Question is a way of guiding pupils to make links between distinct subject areas and relate them to the world around them. We have chosen 6 Big Questions and added the resources your pupils will need to be able to form a detailed and considered response.

Averages and range

(12)

This Maths based topic uses the real-life context of the British America’s Cup team INEOS TEAM UK to show the crucial role of data collection and analysis in developing the performance of both the boat and crew. Students will use data generated by the team to develop their learning of mean, median, mode and range of averages.

Nutrition

(7)

This topic supports the learning required for Biology, PE and Food Technology. It uses the real-life context of the British America’s Cup team INEOS TEAM UK to introduce the topic of nutrition. The topic covers the components of a healthy diet and why they are needed, using the different roles within the team to demonstrate how energy requirements vary acording to activity level. Students go on to calculate the energy provided in a daily meal plan.

Solar panels: Modelling and data analysis – Lesson 1

(7)

This Maths topic uses the real-life context of the British America’s Cup team INEOS TEAM UK. Students will explore the modelling and data analysis behind the team’s solar panel array on the teams headquarters during the 35th America’s Cup. Over two lessons, students will use the blueprint of the base’s roof to design an array, calculate area and analyse real data to evaluate the energy produced.

Solar panels: Modelling and data analysis – Lesson 2

(6)

INEOS TEAM UK’s base has a large solar array on the roof. To ensure the team understand how well it performs under different conditions, students help them analyse the data they have collected relating to the amount of electricity produced.

Speed, distance, time

(8)

This Maths and Science topic uses the real-life context of the British America’s Cup team INEOS TEAM UK and covers interpreting distance-time graphs, drawing distance-time graphs from given data and defining speed as the distance covered in a set time.

Virtual Tech Deck

(2)

Take a virtual tour of our Tech Deck through four short videos which explore some of the science and cutting edge technologies that go into making a winning America’s Cup boat and Team.
