Craft 1

The Craft 1 course covers five main outcomes:


  • Round numbers, use scientific notation, percentages and ratios in engineering contexts.


  • Calculate areas, perimeters, volumes and surface areas of simple shapes in engineering contexts.


  • Read scales, tables, graphs and charts which relate to engineering applications.


  • Use Pythagoras' Theorem and sin/cos/tan in right angled triangles in engineering contexts.


  • Substitute numerical values into simple engineering formulae.


The course is assessed via a single, end of year exam with 60% being required to pass.
