The Prototype: A Visual Conceptual Model for Students and Commuters on the KCRC West Rail Line





  • Students: An understanding of the relationships between distance and time on a public transport.
  • Commuters: A journey planner on the estimated time of arrivals.

(a) A Step-by-Step Guide to Making it Work

  1. Select a station from the 2 lines
  2. Click on “Let's Go!”
  3. Choose the time and date of travel
  4. Information of the results

(b) What More Needs to be Done

  1. Display the stations exactly the same as selected
  2. Adjust the information of results accordingly
  3. Distances between stations to be included in the information of results
  4. Fine tune on the user interface

Lesson Task: Final Assignment Story-board




1. Finding the distance (km) and estimated time of arrival (min) between any 2 MTR stations.


2. Choosing 2 MTR stations using interactive icons.


3. Then choose one DAY and one PERIOD.


4. Data on the distance (km) and estimated time of arrival (min) will be shown on the user interface.


Lesson Task: Final Assignment Proposal


Proposal outline by Alan Chan and me:

Topic:

The MTR

Aim:

1. To provide practical value for students to understand mathematical concepts.
2. To offer a visual interactive tool for users to plan their travel needs.

Type of Learning Object:

(a) Conceptual model – to help students realize that external factors can influence mathematical outcomes.
(b) Information object – to enhance the information already given on the MTR homepage in order to be more user-friendly for any user.
