An Energy Efficient building is more comfortable than a wasteful building. It needs less fuel and electricity for heating and cooling. A building that is badly designed and poorly kept wastes money. Why? Because it is trying to heat the outside as well as the inside.
Students should be taking notes on lecture.
We spend most of our time in buildings; homes, schools, offices and stores. Most people hardly notice details about the buildings , such as how the are designed, how they are built and how well they are maintained. These details have strong effect on how much we enjoy a building and how much it costs.
Once again students should have the ability to make observations and record them.
