Year 10

Learning Outcome 2: Geometry (Controlled only)

  • I can estimate and convert areas, construct an ellipse and triangles. I can:
    • estimate graphically the area of an irregular shape using the grid and mid-ordinate methods;
    • convert a pentagon, a quadrilateral, a rectangle, and a triangle into a square of the same area;
    • identify the properties of an ellipse;
    • construct an ellipse, locate its foci and construct tangents and normals to it;
    • construct triangles from given data – perimeter & 2base angles, perimeter & altitude of isosceles triangle.
  • I can trace and name the locus of:
    • the end of a string as it unwinds from a plane geometric figure. i.e. involute;
    • a point on a circle as it rolls without slipping on a plane surface. i.e. cycloid;
    • a point as it moves around and away from a point at a constant rate. i.e. Archimedean spiral;
    • a point that moves along and around a cylinder at a constant rate. i.e. helix.

Learning Outcome 5: Pictorial Projection (Controlled only)

  • I can use isometric, oblique, perspective (1pt & 2pt) and planometric drawing techniques in order to represent a variety of forms and objects. I can:
    • sketch in freehand, solids in isometric and oblique;
    • sketch in freehand more complex solids in isometric and oblique;
    • draw single and two-point perspective drawings of manufactured items and architectural interiors/exteriors;
    • construct an isometric, oblique and planometric drawing from a pictorial drawing of a different type.
  • I can convert orthographic projections to various pictorial projections. I can:
    • draw oblique, isometric, planometric or perspective views from given orthographic views;
    • draw an oblique, isometric, planometric or perspective view from a real-life object and from my imagination;
    • choose the most suitable pictorial projection for a given task and explain my choice;
    • solve problems related to pictorial drawing within set time constraints and with minimum assistance.

Learning Outcome 7 Graphic Design (Controlled only)

  • I can represent data in a graphical manner and communicate information. I can:
    • read graphs, charts and diagrams to analyse and interpret data, e.g. data relating to environmental issues and diversity such as ethnicity, religion and culture;
    • represent data using both 2D and 3D charts and graphs.

Learning Outcome 10: Orthographic Projection (Coursework and Controlled)

  • I can recognise and draw in third angle orthographic projection using standard conventions. I can:
    • recognise the direction of viewing used to derive the various views in third angle projection;
    • recognise and draw the third angle projection symbol; o project a third view from any two other views;
    • draw a simple sectional drawing;
    • draw detailed sectional elevations which may include webs, ribs, shafts, and pins according to standard conventions;
    • apply standard conventions to sectional engineering drawings.

Learning Outcome 13: Solid Geometry (Controlled only)

  • I can draw orthographic projections and one-piece developments of truncated pyramids and cones. I can:
    • rotate pre-modelled objects in real time to view true lengths and shapes with the use of design software;
    • draw orthographic projections of truncated pyramids and cones;
    • construct one-piece surface developments of truncated pyramids and cones including the top and bottom, true-lengths and true shapes of cuts.
