Course Description
Technology influences every aspect of our lives. Engineering drawing and design will introduce you to the foundation and interpretation of engineering drawings. You will learn how to draw clear, accurate and detailed drawings. This class will teach you to understand the fundamental principles of graphic communication. It will also provide you the beginning step to learning the skills for computer-aided drafting and traditional board design. Students will be able to apply the skills acquired in this class to the many different fields of engineering.

This is the first course of the Architecture Drawing & Design pathway offered at North Paulding High School and there are no prerequisites. The class is designed to accommodate every student; however strength in mathematics can be very beneficial. Should a student find themselves struggling at any point, please do not hesitate to schedule a tutoring session.

As a student in class, you are responsible to be prepared! Listed below are the items you are required to have in class everyday: Mechanical Pencil Flash Drive or Jump Drive (usb) Students are encouraged join and participate in SKILLS USA. Information about the costs associated with this club will be given to the students at a later date.

Your involvement and participation in course provide you with the following experiences: The understanding of drafting concepts and how to identify and use drafting tools. Geometry as it is related to technical drawing and actual production objects. Understanding and practice of orthographic projection drawing (multiview) as related to practical applications. Use of proper dimensioning and sectioning practices. Use of Computer-Aided Drafting and Design (CADD) as a "real-world" tool through the use of the AutoCAD, a standard for two-dimensional drawing. Introduction to three-dimensional CADD drawing and animation through the use of the Autodesks Inventor and revit programs. Knowledge on careers related to technical drawing. Use of measuring tools and teaming concepts to create production models. Page 1 of 7

Formative ---------- 25% Quizzes Journal Articles (Minimum of 5) Daily/Weekly Drawings Summative ---------- 60% Unit Tests Career Research Project Major Projects Final Exam ---------- 15% o o Quizzes: Quizzes will be given during each unit to help prepare the student for the unit test. Journal Articles: Students are required to find and read five different articles related to the five major fields of engineering. Critiques of the articles must be at least one page long and be attached to a copy of the article. Class discussion of the articles will be done if time allows. If a student is absence when the journal article report is done in class, the student must follow the missed work policy. Failure to do so will result in a zero grade. Daily / Weekly Drawings: The majority of the time in this class we will be creating technical drawings. Some drawings will be hand drawings using pencil and paper while others will be computer aided drawings. Not all drawings will be graded. You will keep all of your drawings in a folder and periodically I will pick a particular project to grade. Please make sure that you complete every project. Unit Test: Each unit will be completed with a test. The test will cover the information from this unit and may have information from previous units. The quizzes will lead up to the unit test and can be used as study guides. Career Research Project: In unit 1 we begin to learn about engineering and what careers are available to us. Each student will be assigned an engineering discipline to research. They will then create a power point presentation and give an oral presentation about this branch of engineering. Major Projects: Once students have mastered different drawing techniques, I will begin assigning more complex projects. In the past these have included residential subdivision designs, house floor plans, cell phone drawings and bridge designs.

Grading Scale

B = 89-80 C = 79-70 F = 69-0

Attendance & Make Up Work

It is very important that you attend class daily! Attendance - Students are expected to be in class on time and be prepared to start instruction when the bell rings for class to begin. If a student is late to class he or she will be sent to the office to obtain a tardy slip. The parent will be contacted on the second tardy and informed of the consequences for continued tardiness. The student handbook states the following: The third unexcused tardy in an 18 week period will also result in a referral to the administration for other consequences including but not limited to detention, Saturday School, ISS, or Out of School Suspension. Make Up Work - Students are expected to make up work whether excused or not in order to learn the material and be able to perform other class tasks. All make-up work must be made up within five (5) days unless there are unusual circumstances. The make-up work time begins once the student returns to school. The STUDENT must take the initiative to request make-up work, and schedule an appointment if necessary to make up any quizzes or tests. Failure of the student to make up any graded work within the stated guidelines will result in a zero (0) grade on all work missed.

Classroom Expectations & Policies

Expect to have State of the Art equipment Expect to receive World Class instruction. Expect to have challenging assignments that extend beyond the class period. Expect to arrive for class before time and prepared to work all period. Expect to treat your teacher and peers with respect. Expect to treat all equipment with care and finish all food or drink before entering class. Expect To Succeed Each days critical thinking problem will be on the screen or whiteboard at the beginning of class. When you arrive begin working on your assignment in your seat. During the last 5 minutes of class, clean your work area, return tools & equipment to their proper location and perform any assigned duties. Consequences - Students who violate the classroom rules or expectations will have the following actions taken. 1st-offense (verbal warning), 2nd offense (call parents), 3rd offense (detention), 4th offense (administrative referral)

Computer Policies
The majority of all work in this course will require the use of computers.

Page 3 of 7

All students must comply with the High School Computer Technology Policy found in their student handbook. All students must have a login assigned to gain access to any computer in the school. To get this login information, an acceptable use policy form must be signed by a parent or guardian. The acceptable use policy forms will be provided on the first day of school. Students should use only programs assigned by the instructor. Students may not send messages on the networks. Please refrain from installing any programs on the computers. Students are only authorized to use their own ID or one assigned by a faculty member. Students should never share IDs or Passwords with anyone. (Students are responsible for any damage occurred while logged in using his/her ID.) Please do not access improper on-line information, including adult or pornographic material. Technology equipment and peripherals should never leave this campus. Please report any vandalized equipment or systems. Examples include, but not limited to, missing or rearranged keys on the keyboard, defective mice, unplugged or damaged computer cables and markings on computer equipment.
