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 states,”


The actual force
in a member must be less than or equal to (≤) 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.




2.>>>>>


Also as an added
benefit the student will spend time pondering engineering concepts.


This leaves the
student with a “feel” for engineering.


This is an
advantage for college bound students planning academic studies in
engineering.


They attend
their classes with a cup ready to be filled.




3.>>>>>


At what age did
the inventors of mathematics, science and engineering make most of their
discoveries? Early on. Now is the time to provide the math,
science and engineering tools for our most inventive young minds.




4.>>>>>


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
relabel these students using their success with this topic.




5.>>>>>>


We need to learn
to do more and more with less and less until we can do everything with
nothing.


Buck Minster Fuller


Supplies are
expensive.


ModelSmart3D
makes it easy to try ideas without wasting materials.


ModelSmart3D can
give you vast tower building experience in a morning.
