Structural analysis and ModelSmart3D provide opportunity
to reinforce math concepts such as:
inequalities, negative numbers, the 3d Cartesian system
(x,y,z) ,measurement,% and many others.
For example, a basic engineering design equation
The actual force in a member must be less than or equal
the allowable force for the member.”
This makes a great practical example for inequalities
and wets the appetite for engineering tools (ie math and science).
Structures also provides practical application for
science concepts such as implementation of Newton’s laws and other Physical science skills.
Also as an added benefit the student will spend time
pondering engineering concepts.
This leaves the student with a “feel” for
This is an advantage for college bound students planning
academic studies in engineering.
They attend their classes with a cup ready to be
At what age did the inventors
of mathematics, science and engineering
make most of their discoveries? Early
is the time to provide the math, science and engineering tools for our most
inventive young minds.
Children live up to their labels. Visually oriented students that are weak in
their verbal skills are sometimes, along the way, labeled as poor students.
They are our Engineers!!
We can properly re-label these students using their
success with this topic.
We need to learn to do more and more with less and less
until we can do everything with nothing.
