CORE TOPICS

  • 2 -- Resource management and sustainable production
    • 2.2 -- Waste Mitigation Strategies 
    • 2.3 -- Energy utilization, Storage, and Distribution 

ESSENTIAL IDEA

  •  Resource management and sustainable production carefully consider three key issues—consumption of raw materials, consumption of energy, and production of waste—in relation to managing resources and reserves effectively and making production more sustainable. 

CLASS ACTIVITIES

  • Present your slides on 2.2 and 2.3
    • Here it is in case you missed it!
  • Talk more about what a Part B should look like

generating original ideas

  • Start with napkin sketches (number the individual sketches)
  • Select about 5  ideas to incrementally improve so to better meet the appropriate specifications
  • Make low fidelity card/clay etc models of the 5
  • Evaluate them against the specifications, with the client and peer review (summarise the client and peer feedback)
  • Choose two based on the evaluation
  •  
  • HOMEWORK

        7. Quantifications and mitigation of Carbon Emissions
        8. Batteries, Capacitors, etc. 
    • Your PPT slide must include the following:
      • The main info in your own words
      • A picture that relates to your topic
    • A max of 2 slides.
    • You have to quickly present it. 
    • YOU WILL HAVE 40 MINUTES TO COMPLETE THIS ACTIVITY -- THEN WE PRESENT!

  • Anyone for SPACE TACOS!?!?!?
    •   
  • If your Prototype needs to be fine tuned then Friday is the day to make that happen OTHERWISE you need to start thinking about the who/what/where/when of your testing...
  • On the subject of prototypes check this out:

    • 1.1c -- Physiological Factors

ESSENTIAL IDEAS 

  •  Designers consider three human factors to ensure that products meet ergonomic needs.

CLASS ACTIVITIES

  • Quick review of ANTHROPOMETRY
  • Let's find some design context for different types of anthropometric data:
    • Using this document (Thanks Lane!) use the following pages of anthropometric data:
      • 28
      • 29
      • 33
      • 37
      • 44
      • 48
      • 66
      • 56
      • 72
      • 73
      • 76
    • Your job (with a partner) is to figure out what type of consumer product would use this data.  For each page Codega expects at least 3 different types of products.  For example, if it were for finger width don't just do ring, wedding ring, engagement ring, claddagh ring, etc.  THINK CREATIVELY AND THINK SIMPLY! 
    • Make sure you for each entry in your notebook you write what the measurement is what the design context you came up with.
  • Finish taking notes on Anthropometrics
    •

ORE 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

  • The test tracks MUST be completed by 10:30
  • Testing
  • HOMEWORK
    • Write a reflection about the process of building your test track.  Please include:
      • What you liked about the process of building the track
      • What you would change about the process of building the track
      • Overall thoughts about the project.  Explain your answer IN DETAIL! 

 

 

11/9

12

  • Show Codega your proof of purchase
  • Re-turn in Part C with updated materials lists
  • PLAN WHAT YOU NEED FOR FRIDAY when we begin working on the prototype!  
    • No progress/no work = NO PASSING GRADE for the day!

11

  • Continue to work on the tracks -- Codega is too tired to teach you new content today...Thanks Election 2016!
  • Test Tracks WILL be tested TOMORROW at 10:30!  
    • Remember, if your car does fails to complete the test your grade will fail to rise above a 30!

 

11/07

12

  • Show your materials proof of purchase to Codega.  THIS IS A TEST GRADE!
  • Today we are going to review the IB Design Cycle
    •  
  • Other requirements for production of the prototype:
    • Document the process
      • Take pictures of each step 
        • Take pictures of each part as you make them and then join them 
        • Have someone else take pictures of your actual manufacturing process  
      • Make sure you pay attention to how long each step takes
      • be aware of the process -- you can go back and revise Part C if needed -- that is ok and will actually make your prototype better!   
      • Remember, the prototype won't be right the first time -- you will have to build multiple versions of it.  Codega will NOT accept a prototype that looks like you made it with your feet.  That might mean redoing it a few times to make it as perfect as you can.  
        • Failure to revise will lead to failure on your report card... 
  • Today:
    • Now that we have gone to Lowes:
      • Take a look at your Part C again
      • Make some changes
      • Turn it back into Codega on Wed.
      • We will start going over them on Firday.
  • Next class
    • Starting Wednesday we need to start the construction of the prototypes.
    • Remember, your prototype will require an iterative process so start early (like next class) so you have time to fix/perfect it.  You have been warned...

11/4

12

  • Trip to Lowes -- don't forget the permission slip -- if you don't have one signed by a parent then you have to stay behind in the IB Lounge.
    • Remember:
      • Drive slowly and in control, pay attention, and do not play around -- we are not in a rush so there is no reason to take chances with lights or to speed.  
      • We are ONLY going to Lowes and back -- no stopping at your house, to pick something up to eat, or go anywhere else besides Lowes on Two Notch Rd and then back to ACF.  
    • Here are directions to Lowes on Two Notch (I know they are to Bojangles but Google maps is being stupid -- just go past the Bojangles on Oneill Ct.  and take a right into the Lowes parking lot right before the Applebees.  
  • BE SAFE!!!! 

 

11/3
