Publisher description for aspexTabs

aspexTabs program icon

aspexTabs is perfect for use by upper primary and secondary pupils. The user interface is simple and has buttons for creating lots of primitive shapes. Once a shape has been chosen it can be moved, scaled, rotated, resized, coloured or mapped with an image and then grouped with other shapes to make a more complex model. A simple project might consist of two shapes, a cuboid and a wedge shape joined together to make a farmhouse, and to make a paper model of it. Another idea is to build a cuboid and a cylinder of Similar dimensions, make paper models and then to compare their volumes practically by filling them with Rice. The results often surprise pupils! A project like this takes the pupils through all the stages of the design process from thinking about a problem to manufacturing an object to solve the problem.
