Craft, design, engineering & graphics contexts

TCH 2-12a, TCH 3-12a, TCH 4-12a - Energy is transferred when it is changed from one form to another, for example when chemical energy is converted to kinetic energy when using batteries to power a motor or when using gravitational force to create the movement in models.

TCH 1-11a, TCH 2-11a, TCH 3-11a, TCH 1-14a, TCH 2-14a, TCH 3-14a - Within a design challenge ‘problem-solving’ can be used to describe a number of approaches learners may adopt. These could include investigative approaches, trial and error, visualisation, breaking the problem into smaller components, collaboration with others or other appropriate strategies.

TCH lines of development 9, 12, 13, 14 - Control technology plays an increasingly important role in society, in a diverse range of industrial and commercial applications, for example, in security systems, entertainment systems, manufacturing and production. Control technology includes technological systems such as electronic, mechanic, pneumatic or mechatronic. It involves computer control and may also involve computer automation and programmable control devices, including those that sense and control an environment. Systems thinking is an integral part of control technology, with the relationship of inputs, processes and outputs being a fundamental component.

TCH line of development 15 - Through different and increasingly challenging contexts, learners will develop the ability to communicate and realise ideas and information using a variety of manual and electronic means. Learners will also explore methods of enhancing representations such as the use of tone, shadow, texture and colour.
