• Technical Drawing 2

    Course Syllabus


    Teacher: Mr. Mayes                                                           Credit: 1


    Technical drawing two is an advanced course to further develop drafting skills and hand eye coordination.  You will learn to use the computer aided drafting system to a more proficient level making yourself more marketable to the drafting community.  Drawing will involve; assembly drawings, sections, auxiliary views, dimensioning & labeling, threads and fasteners, and basic engineering structures.


    Expected Outcomes


              Students who have completed Technical Drawing two will have had the experience to become more proficient on the Autocadd drafting program.  The program will help provide students with opportunities available in a variety of job markets.  Autodesk is the Cadd Standard for industry and is used in a variety of trades, manufacturing, and landscaping.  Students will leave this course with the skills to go into any direction or field that is using this program.


    Content to be Covered


    Autocadd                                                                                Autodesk Inventor

    Paperspace                                                                              Solid Modeling

    Manufacturing Design                                                            Transportation Design

    Structural Engineering                                                            ANSI Standard Charts


    Assessment and Evaluation


    Drawings/Worksheets/Tests    80%

    Class Participation                  20%


              All assignments that you turn in will be assessed under the criteria listed below. 


    Deadline:  All projects must be turned in on time.  Draftsmen are forced to meet deadlines and have completion dates on all projects.


    Objective:  All of the assignments will focus on one or two objectives that must be completed.  You will be graded on the efficiency and accuracy that you did to complete the project.


    Performance:  Using the proper techniques of design in order to accurately draw a symbol of design on the computer.


    Character:  All work must be neatly done using title blocks and proper labeling of all indicated items.



    Grading Policy


    All Assignments must be turned in within the week of the due date.  This means that students have five days to turn in a plan after the due date without penalty.  After the five day grace period students will lose 10 points for late assignments. 


    Plans that are late or were not turned-in must be handed to the instructor four days prior to the end of the marking period to be accepted and graded for the nine week marking period.  Missing this deadline will be an automatic zero on the plan.


    Attendance Policy


    Attendance is critical in this particular classroom setting.  The classroom is established and set-up to a real life working situation where people are needed to be at work to complete projects.  Students need to be present in the classroom in order to complete assignments and meet deadlines.  Students will usually not have the software at home to complete projects outside of the classroom.  Failure to come to class will possibly lead to failure of the course.
