    Wilson's School Design & Technology 1

    YEAR 8

    Whenever I have an idea I write it down, even if it’s not a very good idea. Sometimes the bad ideas will lead to better ones.

    - James Dyson

    How does this document work?

    This document has all the homework to be completed by

    all Yr8 students.

    All homework tasks are to be completed for the next

    lesson after the homework is set.

    The images in the document are taken from online

    resources each image should have a link to its origin.

    All resources can be found on the Wilson's Design and

    Technology webpage

    http://www.wilsonsschool.sutton.sch.uk

    What are you expected to complete?

    Each section gives instruction on what is to be completed.

    Students can choose the way in which they answer the

    homework task (drawing, written, storyboard etc)

    Students can complete the homework in any media they

    wish (by hand, on word, PowerPoint, online) but a physical

    copy must be submitted during the lesson. On a USB is not

    acceptable.

    How do the homework tasks work?

    There are three sections: Knowledge, Application and

    evaluation.

    In the knowledge section you need to answer at least three

    of the questions

    In the application section you need to use one or more of

    the presentation methods

    In the evaluation section you need to answer two or more

    of the questions.

    This must be completed for all home works!

    The standard of homework

    All homework is to be on A4

    Presented in landscape

    Handwriting in black ink on pencil lines drawn with a ruler

    All images are to be rendered in colour

    See next page for examples of how to layout homework

    Examples of litter found in a park

    I see litter as part of a long continuum of anti-social behaviour.

    Bill Bryson

What are the issues associated with picking up litter? What can you conclude is needed? 2. Produce a design brief to design and make a device to assist in the picking up of litter at Wilson's.

    3. Produce an 8 point specification. Each point needs

    to have a justification that is specific to the product.

    See example below the justification is highlighted.

    Spec point for a toothbrush

    It needs to be resistant to bending. So that the user

    1. Produce a campaign poster about litter, including all

    of the information above

    2. Produce a leaflet style (A4) document arguing the

    need for a product which can assist in the picking up

    of litter at Wilson's

    3. Draw up a design page laying out the information

    above. Remember to write on lines.

    What is litter? Why is it a problem?

    LITTER RESEARCH

    Knowledge: (answer 3 or more)

    1. Collect a litter that could be found in the school

    grounds. Measure it, and stick it into your research.

    2. Draw a piece of litter to scale, add measurements and

    render.

    3. Find examples of litter online, and explain the

    differences in shape and the difficulty that may pose

    when picking it up.

    You need a minimum of 6 examples in total

    Application: (use 1 or more)

    1. Create a research page in your sketch pad, using a

    boarder, drawing and writing on pencil lines. You can

    add images from the internet to support findings.

    2. Create a research page on the computer add images,

    examples of collected rubbish and leave space to

    draw at least one example by hand.

    Evaluation: (answer 2 or more)

    1. Is littering an issue at Wilson's. Argue for or against

    this statement. Give examples to support your

    answers.

    2. What is the possible environmental impact of litter at

    Wilson's, discuss.

    ERGONOMIC & ANTHROPOMETRIC

    Knowledge :( answer 3 or more) 1. Define what ergonomics means. In your answer you must include two product examples. The products must

    be used in your school environment and support your definition. Do not just copy tech student or Wikipedia!

    2. Define what anthropometrics means. In your answer you must include two specific measurements of products

    in the school environment, and how they were used to help design the product. Exact measurements are not

    required; estimations can be used to illustrate the answer.

    3. Define what '5th and 95th percentile' means. Explain how it is relevant to a design and hypothesis how a car

    designer may use this data. Give one specific example

    Application: (use 1 or more)

    1. Produce a design sheet answering the questions above using drawings and handwritten notes.

    2. Produce a word processed doc answering the questions above. Use images from the internet and hand

    drawn images to illustrate points made.

    Evaluation: (answer 2 or more)

    1. Using drawings and notes what anthropometric data will you need to make your litter picker? Take

    accurate measurements of your own body. This data will be used in your design.

    2. Define the relationship between anthropometric and ergonomic data?

    3. Using drawings and notes, what ergonomic and anthropometric data would be needed to design a stool in

    the D&T classroom?

    fulcrum, effort and load.

    2. Define the three classes of lever; draw how each class works, including naming all the components.

    3. Give a real world application of each lever. Explain how you have identified its class. You cannot use any of the
