Tasks to complete-
1) Research and test yourself on the words linking to how we describe the properties (what they are like) of the materials we use to design and make products. You should be finding the meanings for these words – Strength, elasticity, plasticity, ductility, tensile strength, malleability, toughness, hardness, conductivity, absorbency, density and fusibility.
2) Find examples of types of materials for the following material categories – timber, polymers (plastics), metals, smart materials, modern materials, composite materials. An example would be that you can have ferrous metals that contain iron and non ferrous metals that do not contain iron. Types of ferrous metals include steel and iron. This will help you learn about the different materials you can select to design and make products and what they are like for their properties.
