Contain your Excitement... Putting Maths to Work

Containers... Putting Maths to Work

...travel the world Putting Maths to Work

They transport all sorts... Putting Maths to Work

...hopefully in one piece

They are packed fully......wasted space costs money Putting Maths to Work

Pallets are not used: they take up valuable space in the container Putting Maths to Work

Full containers are loaded onto a container ship... Putting Maths to Work

...which travels to its destination Putting Maths to Work

At the port the container is placed onto a lorry... Putting Maths to Work

...travels to a warehouse Putting Maths to Work

Contents are off-loaded through goods in Putting Maths to Work

The goods are emptied onto pallets...as one store wouldnt want 5000!! Putting Maths to Work

Stores request what they need. This is loaded into a delivery lorry...In you go (or wait at home) to get your latest purchase Putting Maths to Work

From container to pallet... Putting Maths to Work

The Container The container measures – Width 2.4m – Height 2.8m – Length 12.5m Putting Maths to Work

How many boxes fit? The goods box measures – Width 40cm – Height 40cm – Length 50cm How many boxes would fit into the container?

The Pallet The pallet measures – Width 1.0m – Length 1.2m It can only be stacked to a height of 1.6m (due to racking restrictions) Putting Maths to Work

How many boxes fit? Using the same box measurement how many can you fit onto the pallet? Putting Maths to Work

Problems with this model What are the assumptions/problems with this model? List your answers. Putting Maths to Work

Extension If the real dimensions of the container are: – Width 2.35m – Height 2.39m – Length 12.04m What affect will this have on the number of boxes of the given dimension that will fit in the container? How much space is wasted? Putting Maths to Work
