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.
