10/20

 

CORE TOPIC

  • Identify the importance and use of Conceptual Modelling 

ESSENTIAL IDEA/OBJECTIVES

  • conceptual model originates in the mind and its primary purpose is to outline the principles and basic functions of a design or system. 

CLASS ACTIVITIES

  • Introduction to modeling
    • The (Codega modified) Marshmallow Challenge
      • You have 18 minutes to create the highest free standing structure out of 20 sticks of spaghetti, one yard of tape, one yard of string, and one marshmallow (which goes on top).
      • We will measure to see who has the highest one that remains standing.
    • Watch the TED Talk about the marshmallow challenge
    •  
    • After the first round we will do it again, but this time you must take 5 minutes to first reflect on what went well and what could be improve and THEN create a NAPKIN sketch of your new design.  After that time you will build it again, this time with only 13 minutes.    
    • We will measure again.  The winning group will be the team that has the highest TOTAL height (remember, only buildings that remain standing will count towards the total) will get the  remaining marshmallows.
  • Class Notes on Conceptual Modelling.
  • HOMEWORK 
    • Have a nice weekend and GO COCKS!

 

10/24

CORE TOPIC

  • Identify and Define what a graphical model is and its importance to the overall design process. 

ESSENTIAL IDEA/OBJECTIVES

  • Graphical models are used to communicate design ideas 

CLASS ACTIVITIES

  • Take some brief notes on Graphical Models and complete a brief Graphic Organizer on Graphical Models

 

10/26

CORE TOPIC

  • Identify and Define what a graphical model is and its importance to the overall design process. 

ESSENTIAL IDEA/OBJECTIVES

  • Graphical models are used to communicate design ideas 

CLASS ACTIVITIES 

  • Physical Models notes
  • Check out this page for the Parking Assignment
    • Today is a day to walk around campus do some primary research about the current parking restrictions on campus. 
  • This will be due by the END of class on THURSDAY! 

 

10/27

CORE TOPIC

  • Identify and Define what a graphical model is and its importance to the overall design process. 

ESSENTIAL IDEA/OBJECTIVES

  • Graphical models are used to communicate design ideas 

CLASS ACTIVITIES 

  • Get to drawing on your parking assignment! Please use the large pieces of paper.
  •  Your job is to combine the best of your ideas to create a final PERFECT parking layout at ACF.  This is a blending of your ideas, NOT just executing one persons vision! 

 

10/31

CORE TOPIC

  • Rapid Prototyping  

ESSENTIAL IDEA/OBJECTIVES

  • Essential idea: Rapid prototyping is the production of a physical model of a design using three-dimensional CAD data. 

CLASS ACTIVITIES 

  • Short Lecture on Rapid Prototyping  
  • Jigsaw groups on different types of Rapid Prototyping Technology 
  • Short Presentations on your groups findings
    • These are the four types of technology we will look at:
      • Fused Deposition Modeling
      • Stereolithograph
      • Selective Laser Sintering
      • Laminated Object Modelling 
  • Use these links to answer all of the questions that are posed:

11/2

CORE TOPIC

  • Physical Modeling   

ESSENTIAL IDEA/OBJECTIVES

  • Essential idea: A physical model is a three-dimensional, tangible representation of a design or system.

CLASS ACTIVITIES 

  • Quiz on Graphical/Conceptual Modeling  
  • Review Rapid Prototyping  by watching these videos:
  • Close reading of text on Physical Modeling
    • Physical Modeling  
      • Write one fact from each section
      • Write one question you might still have from each section 
    • Discussion on Physical Modeling and how all of the modeling ties in together.  
    • Watch this video which explains that: Cardboard Lexus

 

11/3 & 11/10

CORE TOPIC

  • Physical Modeling
  • Graphical modeling   

ESSENTIAL IDEA/OBJECTIVES

  • Essential idea: Modeling can be useful in design and it follows a system to make the best design possible.
