Introduction to scale drawing

1. Learning Objectives (Student Performance Standards/(MSSC/SSS/NOCTI)

 

ITEA Standards

 

Standard 3. Students will develop an understanding of the relationships among technologies and the connections between technology and other fields of study.

Standard 9. Students will develop an understanding of engineering design.

 

Florida Framework Objectives

01.0 DEMONSTRATE AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE CHARACTERISTICS AND SCOPE OF TECHNOLOGY.--The student will be able to:

 

01.01 Develop new products and systems to solve problems or to help do things that could not be done without the help of technology. STL.1.F, LA.C.3.3, MA.B.3.3, SS.D.2.3

01.02 Explain how technology is closely linked with creativity, which has resulted in innovation. STL.1.H, LA.D.2.3, MA.D.1.3

 

08.0 DEMONSTRATE AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE ATTRIBUTES OF DESIGN.

 

08.01 Use design as a creative planning process that leads to useful products and systems. STL.8.E

 

 

2. Materials List

1/8-inch graph paper, #2 pencil, 100’ tape measure and a ruler or scale

 

3. Time Frame of lesson

4 - 6 days

 

4. Subject Area Targets

a. Middle School Students

 

5. Introduction to the Lesson

In our technological world, classroom spaces as well as other spaces (Factories, warehouse and offices as examples) need to be utilized to maximize efficiency.

Using graph paper, students will draw a floor plan layout of the lab including all major learning/activity stations. Drawing will be to scale.

 

 

6. Activities (Students are engaged in designing, researching, investigating, computing, and comprehending information in a directed learning environment.)

a. Writing Component

1. Why is floor space important in a school?

2. What type of planning needs to be done to determine the size of a classroom?

b. Science Component

c. Reading Component

1. Internet research

2. Check media center for books on design

d. Math Component

1. Learning to measure.

2. Converting measurements (actual to scale).

e. Fun Component

1. Redesign lab the way you think it should be done.

 

 

7. Projects (Students begin to monitor their own thinking and develop strategies to solve problems in an environment that is long-term, interdisciplinary, student-centered, and integrated with real world issues.)

a. Writing Component

b. Science Component

c. Reading Component

d. Math Component

e. Fun Component

 

 

8. Real World Problems (Students understand the nature of a problem and self-assess their knowledge in an environment that promotes their investigating, designing, testing, applying, revising, and explaining and developing strategies to enable and direct their own learning. Apply what you learned to Manufacturing)

 

 

9. Assessment (How does the instructor interpret the success of the lesson?)

 

 

10. Evaluation (How is the student work scored and a grade assigned?)

 

A - Meets nearly all of the criteria B - Meets most of the criteria

C/D - Meets some of the criteria F - Meets nearly none of the criteria

 

Criteria

All measurements are accurate

Floor plan identifies all lab areas

Drawing is neat, accurate, and easy to read

Major lab equipment is noted on the plan

 

 

11. Additional Resources (Links, Web Sites, Virtual Tours, etc.)

Introduction To Scale Drawing

STUDENT ACTIVITY SHEET

 

 

1. Activity Objective:

Using graph paper, you will sketch a layout of the technology lab.

 

 

2. Materials, Equipment, & Supplies Needed:

1/8-inch graph paper

Pencil

Ruler

 

3. Procedures To Complete This Activity:

1. Watch teacher demonstration on measuring.

2. Using a ruler, measure the perimeter of the room

3. Drawing the perimeter of the lab on the graph paper according to measurement taken. This will be the shape of the lab floor plan.

4. The major lab sections should be drawn in pencil.

5. Each student draws his or her own plan. (Students will work in groups to collect lab measurements)

7. Submit the completed plan to your teacher to be graded.

 

 

4. How You Will Be Graded:

A - Meets nearly all of the criteria B - Meets most of the criteria

C/D - Meets some of the criteria F - Meets nearly none of the criteria

 

Criteria

All measurements are accurate

Floor plan identifies all lab areas

Drawing is neat, accurate, and easy to read

Major lab equipment is noted on the plan

Butch,

I need you to reduce the scope of any lesson from 4-6 days, as you propose in this one, to 1 class period (perhaps with a pre and post activity).

What connections can you make to modern manufacturing and to our industry resources? Can you integrate this measurement activity into my preliminary learning challenges in the Resources page?
