9 Contain your Excitement... Putting Maths to Work

10 Containers... Putting Maths to Work

11 ...travel the world Putting Maths to Work

12 They transport all sorts... Putting Maths to Work

13 ...hopefully in one piece

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

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

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

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

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

19 ...travels to a warehouse Putting Maths to Work

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

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

22 The pallets are placed in racking Putting Maths to Work

24 From container to pallet... Putting Maths to Work

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

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

27 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

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

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

30 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
