    9. Orthographic Projections

    Learning Target: I can sketch and develop orthographic projections of model blocks A, B, C, D, E/F, G, H, I and J.

    Notes

    Example  Example

    10. Orthographic Projection Design Activity

    Learning Target: I can design, sketch, and present a product that could be used to solve a problem around my house, using an orthographic projection.

    Example:

    Problem: I have a fire pit in my back yard to enjoy camp fires, however, I have no place to keep my fire wood. Currently, the wood is stacked in the grass. Having the wood stacked like this rots the bottom logs, attracts rodents/insects, and kills the grass.

    Solution: Design and build a fire wood rack to keep the wood off of the ground, keep the wood dry, and in good condition for burning.

    Example  Example

    11. The Design Process

    Learning Target: I can generate a list of problems at my home or school, choose one of those problems and then use The Design Process to develop the best possible solution to that problem. 

    The Design Process assists people in coming up with the best possible solution to a problem.

    Example: The Fire Wood Rack

    1 - Define the Problem - I have a fire pit in my back yard to enjoy camp fires, however, I have no place to keep my fire wood. Currently, the wood is stacked in the grass. Having the wood stacked like this rots the bottom logs, attracts rodents/insects, and kills the grass.

    2 - Gather Information - Best location for it? How big should it be? (length, height, depth)

    3 - Research what has been done in the past - Google searched "Firewood Racks" and looked through images

    4 - Develop/sketch multiple possible solutions - Developed orthographic projection, to scale, for true measurements

    5- Select the best solution and impliment it/ build it - Gathered materials (2x4s, 4x4s, screws, impact driver) and built it

    6 - Test the solution, gather feedback, and use this information to modify and improve - Currently using, eventually added roof to it, as firewood was still getting wet

    13. Isometric Projections - Blocks A, B, C, D, E/F, G, H, I, J

    Learning Target: I can sketch and develop several isometric projections.

     Example  Example

     

     14. Product Design Characteristics

    Learning Target: I can analyze several products and explain each product's aesthetics, function, ergonomics, durability, and cost - then determine if each product is designed well, or poorly.

    Aesthetics – make it look good/ beautiful

    Function – make it work

    Ergonomics – make it comfortable

    Durability – make it last over time

    Cost – spend little making it, sell high, but affordable

     Example  Example  Example  Example  Example  Example

    Example

    Phone Charger from Seven Eleven – 4 stars

    A – white in color – looks clean, glossy adapter

    F – charged phone – did what it had to do

    E – fits comfortably in one hand

    D – worked well for several weeks, then stopped working

    C  - $7 – not bad, cheaper at Five Below

    15. Paper Tower Design Activity

    Learning Target: I can design, sketch, and build a free-standing tower as tall as possible.

     Paper Tower Activity

    16. Straw Tower Design Activity

    Learning Target: I can design, sketch, and build a free-standing tower to hold a tennis ball as far off the table top as possible.

    17. Measuring to nearest 1/2" and 1/4"

    Learning Target: I can locate measurements on a ruler to the nearest 1/2" and 1/4".

    The Ruler Game

     Example

    18. Measuring to nearest 1/8" and 1/16"

    Learning Target: I can locate measurements on a ruler to the nearest 1/8" and 1/16".
