New Maths Module – Solar panels: modelling and data analysis
Bring maths subjects to life by providing your students with real-life contextual thinking through our new maths resource: Solar panels: modelling and data analysis is on BT STEM Crew.
Using the hot topic of renewable energy as the context, the resources focus on two strands of the maths curriculum:
- Lesson 1: designing a solar array using blueprints of the British America’s Cup team’s state-of-the-art base allows students to use and draw scale diagrams and model situations mathematically.
- Lesson 2: analysing data from the base’s solar array allows students to interpret, analyse and compare data sets.
Using real-life examples from a professional sports team, the module will support students’ ability to reason mathematically, solve problems and seek explanations in real and applied situations.
