Year 9

Learning Outcome 1: Geometry (Coursework and Controlled)

  • I can identify and construct a variety of geometric shapes. I can:
    • handle my drawing instruments correctly and use them to recreate given geometrical figures and patterns;
    • recognise set-square angles and draw them, and other composite angles, using instruments;
    • recall the properties of triangles and identify all sorts of triangles by sides and angles;
    • identify and draw a number of quadrilaterals and recall their properties;
    • identify regular polygons and recall their properties;
    • draw a circle using compasses and name its parts and properties.
  • I can use a variety of drawing instruments to draw basic constructions. I can:
    • construct perpendicular bisectors and angle bisectors using compasses;
    • bisect and divide a line into a number of parts by construction;
    • apply proportional division of a line to geometrical constructions;
    • construct triangles from given data (triangle types and basic constructions);
    • construct regular polygons with drawing instruments;
    • inscribe and circumscribe a circle to triangles and regular polygons;
    • use the appropriate construction method to escribe circles.
  • I can identify and construct polar enlargements/reductions, tangents and circles in contact. I can:
    • enlarge and reduce the profile of drawings geometrically using the polar method;
    • construct figures made with tangential arcs and lines;
    • construct interior and exterior tangents between two circles of equal or different diameters.

Learning Outcome 4: Pictorial Projection (Coursework and Controlled)

  • I can use isometric and oblique drawing techniques. I can:
    • draw in cabinet oblique;
    • draw lines, circles and curves in isometric;
    • recognise isometric and oblique drawings and explain their respective usefulness;
    • draw a simple isometric view from a given oblique view and vice-versa;
    • render my pictorial views effectively.

Learning Outcome 6: Graphic Design (Coursework and Controlled)

  • I can identify, discuss, and make use of basic visual principles within a finished graphic design outcome. I can:
    • use colour effectively and distinguish between cool and warm colours;
    • select colours from the colour wheel to suit my design;
    • discuss the visual qualities of existing communication designs such as posters, advertisements and understand the process involved in their production.
  • I can recognise, adapt and create different icons and symbols. I can:
    • recognise safety (prohibition, warning, mandatory, safe conditions and fire) general information, and wayfinding signs along with their correct colours and shapes;
    • use drawing instruments to draw and colour symbols such as safety signs;
    • draw stylised pictograms to convey an idea, e.g. problems inspired by issues of recycling and diversity.

Learning Outcome 9: Orthographic Projection (Controlled only)

  • I can draw in first angle orthographic projection using standard conventions. I can:
    • recognise the direction of viewing used to derive the various views in first angle projection;
    • recognise and draw the first angle projection symbol;
    • project the elevations of a simple solid in first angle projection;
    • project across various views; o use standard conventions to represent hidden detail and centre lines.

Learning Outcome 12: Solid Geometry (Controlled only)

  • I can draw orthographic projections and one-piece developments of truncated prisms and cylinders. I can:
    • use the standard conventions to represent folding lines and use them in surface developments;
    • draw orthographic projections of truncated prisms and cylinders;
    • construct one-piece surface developments of prisms and cylinders including the top and bottom, truncations and true shapes of cuts. e.g. learners in groups are asked to obtain the surface development of solids; simple modelling of the developments using cardboard.
