Level 2 BTEC Engineering - Unit 7: Assignment 2: Parameters, techniques, safe working practices etc.

(0)
This is a 12 page booklet that supports learners through assignment 2 providing them with a place to gather evidence. The practical task is a hammer, but this could easily be replaced with a task of your choice. p.1 Front cover p.2 Success Criteria including simple and complex work holding devices lists p.3 Hammer working drawing (created in 2D design and impossible to upload on TES, sorry.) p.4 & 5 Centre lathe set up (facing off, knurling, setting machining speeds, boring holes, cut depths when roughing and finishing) p.6 Pillar drill set up (position of tool and work piece, changing the speed, swarf checks.) p.7 Final practical photograph and self evaluation (strengths and weaknesses for D2) p.8-10 Accuracy checks including surface finish, vernier, go-no gauge (we made a very basic one) tapers and chamfers. p.11-12 Space for photographic evidence of accuracy checks performed. If using the online assignment brief learners also need to complete a health, safety and accuracy presentation to accompany their evidence. We also include a assessor observation of students setting up the vertical mill correctly and safely to ensure all boxes are ticked. (We also just received some good moderator feedback!) Thanks for looking!

BTEC Level 2 First Award in Engineering - Unit 2 Product Investigation - Assessment booklet

(1)
This is a 22 page booklet created is in PowerPoint with A4 landscape layout, that covers all four areas of the Unit 2, which can be adapted to be used for any product. Fully editable and with no particular product in mind (one size fits all) with the exception of the specification help sheet which focuses on torches (but this is transferable knowledge.) We're planning to use torches for the specification and quality section and the Nissan leaf for materials and manufacture, as focusing on one product tends to leave students a little weary/unfocused. The booklet can also be used in conjunction with the online assignment briefs given out as a booklet or each section one at a time. One version has guidelines to help students write down their answers by hand if you school lacks IT equipment, I know mine does! The other version could be uploaded into google drive and converted to a slide document (might need a little reformatting but not a lot CABIN is my preferred font) or turned into a .pdf for Dropbox or Dochub.) p.1 Title slide p.2 Specification guidance & keywords/sentence structure. p.3 Dissassembly. P.4 Specification help sheet with generic questions to guide students. p. 5-7 Specification worksheets covering all headings from Edexcel guidance. p.8 Materials helpsheet. p.9 Materials & components images collection. p.10-11 Two materials in detail. p.12 The environmental impact of materials. p.13 Manufacturing help sheets. p.14 Manufacturing methods for two components in relation to specific components. p.15-16 Manufacturing methods for two components in detail. p.17 Comparing the environmental impact of manufacturing methods - essay style answer. p.18 Quality control and assurance guidance and keywords. p.19 Quality control checks. p.20 Specific quality control checks in relation to TQM. (TQM is not on the syllabus but some of the students find it easier to grasp and it gives a better full over, which is less specific than Kaizen. p.21 TQM mind map. p.22 Evaluating different quality assurance systems table (I usually use Kaizen, TMQ and Poka Yoke.) Thanks for looking, any questions just ask!

Engineering BTEC Level 2 - Unit 1: The Engineered World - Bionics

(0)
A lesson all about the applications, advantages, and disadvantages of Bionic eyes Prosthetic Limbs Mechanical Hearts/pacemakers Breast Implants Cochlear Implants The first pages are to encourage debate and to classify the pictures and also helps the teacher to gauge the level of prior knowledge in the room (lots of the information will overlap with you top set Science students, if you have any.) The presentation is designed to raise some important issues about disability and health in relation to the applications of bionics. (Might be worth preparing the LADS for a serious discussion, especially when it comes to breast augmentation and cancer.... You could always create new slides on artificial windpipes instead but I fancied a challenging debate and not a lesson where issues such as disability, cancer, deaf/blindness and injury caused through war etc. became topics of banter.) There is then a group task, each group gets a fact sheet about one of the five suggested bionic applications and another sheet with questions that they need to answer and present to the rest of the group. I'm going to give my A2 sugar paper, marker pens and 20 minutes. There's no plenary, I think it'll be a push to get through all five presentations in one lesson. I might use the following lessons to produce a "How much can you remember?" Mindmap. Will being delivering this lesson soon so will be able to give better time/activity guidance. No worksheets, just an editable powerpoint.

Level 2 BTEC Engineering - Unit 1: The Engineered World - Blended Wing Bodies.

(0)
A set of resources including four worksheets and a presentation that aims teach students about blended wing bodies used in the aerospace engineering sector. The bell work is a spot the difference task that aims to encourage students to compare and contrast traditional aircraft with aircraft that have blended wing bodies. This moves into a discussion about their advantages and disadvantages. From this point students should be able to answer all of the questions in the worksheets. Types of questions include multiple choice questions, learning of key terms, and given statements where students have to justify the answers. The final task is a long answer question, ideal as an extension for more able students, or a homework for all. Please look at my other free resources if you are curious about my teaching style and want to see what's on offer before you commit to buy! Free for NQT's, just get in touch.

Slide 3 & 4: Two youtube clips - one explaining cigarette lighters (because they are universally liked by all teenagers) and one that covers ultrasound. Slide 5: Slide that covers benefits and limitations (Your high ability can copy these out while the rest answer the key question at the top of the page. ) Slide 6: Review of the 5 words for electrochromic glass with the group. Slide 7: Grand designs electrochromic glass clip. Slide 8: Same as 5. Slide 9-15: Same structure repeated for SMAs and SMPs covering a range of applications. Slide 16: A wordle with the key terms from the lesson to enable your students to write their own definition of a smart material. Worksheet with some key questions for everyone to be completed during powerpoint and to avoid them getting that glazed look and break up the note taking/clip watching. This can also be used as evidence to later mark (and then remark in order to close the loop just in case ofsted rock up.) Save yourself a day's worth of hunting for appropriate videos and download this fully editable resource. Happy Sunday.

This booklet allows students to gather information on woods, metals, polymers using material properties. This pack should upload into google drive or classroom with little formatting (or as an editable pdf.) I plan to use this so that I can monitor my students progress, how easy it is for us to assume they have made their own notes... And even more frustrating that deep down we know they don't. There a 9 pages in total including the relevant section of the specification. I plan to create a booklet for each section! Thanks for looking.

Three pdf worksheets aimed at teaching students the stages of investment casting. The first resource asks students to watch a ten minute youtube clip and then write the stages of investment casting onto the worksheet. There are times given (in minutes and seconds) where the teacher can pause the video and students are given keywords to allow them to learn the correct terminology. This could also be given as a homework. The second task is to revise the process by cutting and sticking the icons into the correct order. Any questions just ask! *Colours correted, some of the pictures were wax coloured, not aluminium coloured

This is a team work based game that introduces students to the following topics: Surface mount technology CNC machinery Pick and place robotics Drop forging Shearing Teams of four/five are assigned roles (I've assigned teams of 4 because I have classes of 20+) but you could do teams of three by merging the writer/explainer role. Five paragraphs (1 about each process) are put out on different tables and students have to work as a team to produce a quick poster of each process using words and pictures. I'm going to give the team with the best 5 posters a prize at the end. Students are each given specific tasks and their are rules to keep them in check. A five minute timer and two minute timer are in the powerpoint to help you move them on and keep the pressure/pace of the competition going. They could even vote for the winning team at the end or you could get the teams to swap posters and add in anything they think was missing.

This is a step by step guide to enable your students to create a mind-map that recaps the following materials; Titanium Tungsten Duralumin Optical Fibres Modern Metallic Foams Carbon Fibre GRP Kevlar Tungsten Carbide There are two pathways (hard for merit/dist students and easy for L1/pass students) or you could just print my version and add it to a revision pack. I might include timers when mine undertake the task to prevent procrastination. Could be used for a different subject applying the same principles.

BTEC Engineering Level 2 - Unit 1: The Engineered World - Surface nanotechnology (automotive)

(0)
A presentation that covers the basics of nano technology. Slide 1-4 - A maths task helping your high achievers transfer their knowledge of SI to engineering and to help your less able to understand the nano means very small. Also a reading task with a few nano sized facts to consolidate. Slides 5 - The slow mo guys (two young geeks on you tube) explain the principles of hydrophobic materials with some amazing slow motion videos that usually grab the attention of the students. (As a teaser you can promise to show other slow motion video at the end of the lesson but be careful which ones you choose some covering explosions contain inappropriate language and in others the geeks undertake seriously dangerous/reckless activities.) Whereas others have a much more scientific focus. Slide 7-9 - The applications covered in brief (tyres, clearcoat and petrol/oil). Slide 10 - The disadvantages. The first worksheet asks students to write the definition of nanotechnology and then explain three areas where they might be used in the automotive sector. The second worksheet is a series of pictures which students can cut and classify into two or more groups of their choice (alone, as a group or with a neighbour.) They then need to annotate on the meaning of each picture. The powerpoint takes about 10-15 minutes, the students can spend most of the lesson completing the main sorting and annotating task and the answers can be discussed with each table as you wander around the room telling them to stay on task and stop drawing on the tables..... Every resource is in powerpoint and fully editable. Enjoy.

Level 2 BTEC Engineering - Unit 7: Machining: What makes a tool useful?

(1)
A lesson where students exchange information to develop their understand of the following tools and what shape profiles they cut in materials; counter bore, centre drill, twist drill bit, flat-bottomed drill bit, tap, die, countersink, reamer, facing tool, turning tool. The lesson starts with speed dating (instructions included) where students read out slips to eachother (sounds a bit naff but works really well if they are not a group that engages well with writing and has a clear oracy element.) Team discussions and teacher lead discussions moves on to a highlight keywords and explain their meaning sheet. Finally the students have to try and identify which tools create which profiles from given diagrams using the descriptions. Support students moving from Pass to Merit, helps less able to engage with L1 identification of tools, with less writing and more speaking. Probably an hours worth of teaching, identify the profiles could be given as a consolidation homework if you run out of time. All text editable in download. Compliment my other Unit 7: Machining resources including https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/level-2-btec-engineering-unit-7-machining-effectiveness-applications-of-tools-11118336 .
