Publisher description for aspexTabs
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.
