Chapter 10: Assembly diagrams, floor plans and packaging

10.1 Introduction and key concepts (EMG5Z)

In Chapter 6 you learnt about scale, maps and seating plans. In this chapter you will learn about floor plans in greater detail. You will also learn how to:

  • read instructions and use assembly diagrams to put together objects like a cell phone, plugs and simple pieces of furniture.
  • work with rough and scaled floor plans, understand the symbols and notation used on plans and to determine what the scaled dimensions of an object should be (on a plan) when you're given the actual dimensions.
  • understand models and packaging by investigating packaging arrangements using actual cans and boxes, in order to determine the most appropriate and cost effective ways to pack these items.
