CORE TOPICS

  • 4 -- Raw Materials to Final Production

ESSENTIAL IDEA

  • Materials are selected for manufacturing products based primarily on their properties.  

CLASS ACTIVITIES 

  • Turn in your homework (this was a real thing -- periodically we'll have Wellness Wednesday where you will be assigned some healthy activity to complete for homework) 
  • Trophy talk 
  • First let's listen to this (it's only 20 minutes but I think it's well worth our time -- all this fun topic 2 and 8 stuff of course comes out after we finish the unit!)
  • Next let's discuss some of the properties of materials stuff
    • find 10 objects in Codega's class
      • Identify the major components of each
      • Then think about the material properties that were chosen by the designer.  What specific properties (could be one could be more than one) that the designer specifically was looking for based on its use). 
      • Forgot what those terms are already (or based on the quiz from the other day never really knew them at all?) --  Here are all the terms you need to know.  
        • For example:
          • Your desk
            • 3 main parts
              1. Top - hardness
              2. Chair - compressive strength
              3. Frame - Young's Modulus (for stress and strain). 
  • If time:

HOMEWORK

CORE TOPICS

  • 4 -- Raw Materials to Final Production

ESSENTIAL IDEA

  • Materials are selected for manufacturing products based primarily on their properties.  

CLASS ACTIVITIES 

  • Vocab quiz 
  • Today we will take a fun break from regularly scheduled content (you guys seem stressed and to be honest I think a bit of Friday fun is in order).  
    • Your Job Today:
      • Design an award for  the APWH Movie Trailer project
      • You must use http://www.tinkercad.com for the first draft that Codega must approve
      • THEN you must make it in OnShape (I thought you said NOT stressful Codega...)
      • It must reflect the assignment (which can be found here -- it changed a little from what you did last year)
      • It must reflect something about APWH (Codega or Melvin personality quirks or sayings are fair game) -- you get to pick which teacher you are designing for!
      • In also needs an accompanying written explanation about what it means/shows/whatever   
      • It must also be relatively easy to 3D print (that means no sharp overhangs or really small pieces)
        • 3inch by 3 inch max 
    • When you are done email the file saved as an STL to john.codega@richlandone.org 
    • Here is how this will help your Topic 2 and 8 Test scores:
    • Grade goes to a 7  Grade goes to a 60  Grade becomes a 70  Grade becomes an 80  Grade becomes a 90 
      You mail this assignment in with no effort/you fail to turn anything in to Codega  You produce a 3D printable object but it doesn't make sense for the Revolutions project/the teacher you picked  You produce a 3D object  and it EITHER makes sense for the revolutions OR the teacher you picked You produce a 3D object that makes sense for the Revolution AND the teacher you picked  You produce a 3D object that makes sense for the revolutions and the teacher you picked AND demonstrates that you thought deeply and originally about this assignment and the teacher you chose.
