    1. Effectively complete drawings.

    2. Interpret drawings and analyze various production methods being used in the manufacturing of mechanical parts.

    3. Be able to properly detail their drawings so others can understand how the part is to be made and manufactured.

    4. Learn and use accepted standardizations relating to drawings that are essential in communicating with others as a consumer, engineer, technician, and others in the area of production and manufacturing.

    ASSIGNMENTS:

     

    There will be drawings assigned from the following areas: pictorial, multi-view, geometric construction, sectional views, dimensioning, threads and fasteners, and assembly drawings. Assigned drawings are to be completed and turned in on time to receive full credit.

     

    CLASS PARTICIPATION:

    The class consists of lecture and discussion and drawings. Approximately 50% of the time is in class completing the assigned drawings. The other 50% is on problem solving projects.  Much of the work is completed in class which makes attendance very important and work missed during absences difficult to make-up.

     

    GRADING RATIONALE:

    1. Projects: 50% - Because of the content in the course, you will be spending a large part of your class time on projects.

    2. Tests and quizzes: 25%

    3. Class work: 20%

    4. Work Habits: 5% - This encompasses attendance, behavior, and being on task during class time.

     

    GRADING SCALE:

    A 93 - 100

    B 85 - 92

    C 77- 84

    D 70 – 76

    F Below 70

     

    ABSENCE AND MAKE-UP:

     

    If absent, it is the student’s responsibility to first ask other classmates about what was missed and then ask the instructor about the missed assignment and schedule for any make-up time. All missed assignments must be made up by the next day after you return from a single day absence. Late work will be accepted after the due date for less credit unless approved by the instructor.
