This is a lesson plan that allows teachers to integrate engineering principles such as manufacturing engineering in the classroom. The lesson focuses on the use of weight scales and measurement by manufacturing engineers. It explores how engineers use scales and measures when designing a manufacturing process to ensure that final products are uniform in weight or count.

The lesson follows a module format that includes objectives and learner outcomes, problem sets, student guides, recommended reading, illustrated procedures, worksheets, and background information about the engineering connections. The lesson plan and student worksheets are available for download.

3. The Nature of Technology

3A. Technology and Science
  • 3-5: 3A/E3. Measuring instruments can be used to gather accurate information for making scientific comparisons of objects and events and for designing and constructing things that will work properly.

8. The Designed World

8B. Materials and Manufacturing
  • 6-8: 8B/M2. Manufacturing usually involves a series of steps, such as designing a product, obtaining and preparing raw materials, processing the materials mechanically or chemically, and assembling the product. All steps may occur at a single location or may occur at different locations.

9. The Mathematical World

9C. Shapes
  • 6-8: 9C/M7. For regularly shaped objects, relationships exist between the linear dimensions, surface area, and volume.

12. Habits of Mind

12B. Computation and Estimation
  • 6-8: 12B/M8. Decide what degree of precision is adequate and round off the result of calculator operations to enough significant figures to reasonably reflect those of the inputs.
12C. Manipulation and Observation
  • 6-8: 12C/M3. Make accurate measurements of length, volume, weight, elapsed time, rates, and temperature by using appropriate devices.
12E. Critical-Response Skills
  • 6-8: 12E/M2. Compare consumer products and consider reasonable personal trade-offs among them on the basis of features, performance, durability, and cost.
