16 Optimizing: Security Cameras 50

17 Security Cameras A shop owner wants to prevent shoplifting. He decides to install a security camera on the ceiling of his shop. The camera can turn right round through 360°. The shop owner places the camera at point P, in the corner of the shop. The plan view shows where ten people are standing in the shop. P-1 51

19 Plan View P-2 53

20 Sharing Individual Solutions 1.Take turns to share your work. 2.Describe how you did the task and how you think it could be improved. 3.If explanations are unclear, ask questions until everyone in the group understands the individual solutions. P-3 54

21 Security Cameras 1.Which people cannot be seen by the camera at P? Explain your answer, showing clearly on the diagram how you know. 2.The shop owner says, 15% of the shop is hidden from the camera. Show clearly that he is correct. 3.The shop owner decides to move the camera so that it can see as much of the shop as possible. a.Show on the plan view the best place for the camera, so that it can see as much of the shop as possible. b.Explain how you know that this is the best place for the camera. P-4 55

22 Sample Response to Discuss 1.What mistakes have the students made? 2.What assumptions have the students made? 3.In what ways could the students work be improved? 4.To help you to understand the students work, what questions could you ask them? P-5 56
