2019_2020 4th 9 weeks 11

Page history last edited by John Codega 3 years, 8 months ago

Approach this class (and your others) in a way that will make you/your parents proud.  This is a historic time -- like really, this hasn't happened in the last 100 years and (hopefully) won't again in your lifetime -- so just take it easy and try to learn as much as you can...we can figure anything out going forward I only ask that you put in some effort while we all deal with this.  I really do care about all of you (hopefully now you figured out that angry Codega is a bit of an act) so please stay safe out there and check back regularly for assignments.

Thank you.docx

 

5/14

  • Sorry for not having anything for you guys the last few days -- I'm a bit overwhelmed with stuff to grade at the minute (APWH and finalizing senior grades).  So yea...uhhhhh....if its ok with you can we just call it a day for DT this week?  Honestly I'd just be giving you something to keep you busy that may or may not be super relevant to the class.  How about you take today to work on your EE (yea, remember that thing -- that you BS'ed because of the word requirements?  Let's try to actually work on it in a way that makes some sort of sense.  Get rid of all the BS you wrote to fill pages and go back and honestly work on it.  This will make your essay better and I know your supervisor will appreciate NOT having to read nonsense.)
    • TODAY WORK ON YOUR EE! 

 

5/6

  • Work today....hmmm...
  • Let's call it Falcon Time today -- there are guys at my house working on the roof so it's tough to think/concentrate!  Anyway take today to catch up on your EE, work for other classes, study for any AP exams you might have coming up -- something school related for 20-45 minutes.  Thanks! 
  • I'll have something for you to complete on FRIDAY! 

 

5/4

  • Only a few weeks left! WOO HOO!!!!
  • Read this document -- it's advice from the DT seniors about the IA.
    • Read it
    • Email Codega 5 takeaways for your IA -- what are 5 things you need to keep in mind/think about/remember when you are working on the IA?
      • Also, WRITE THEM IN HUGE LETTERS IN YOUR NOTEBOOK -- THIS MIGHT COME IN HANDY NEXT YEAR WHEN YOU ARE TRYING TO COMPLETE HOMEWORK FOR MRS DAVIS DURING 1st BLOCK! 
  • This should take less than 45 minutes (right Meet?)
  • Have a great day -- get some sunshine and go outside.   

 

4/30

  • Take another look at these IAs:
  • Just read over the PART A's (stop when you hit any sketches -- that's Part B) and answer the following questions:
    1. Identify the problem (notice I didn't say solution!) -- basically summarize it!
    2. List the types of research the student used to justify this as a problem.
    3. Was the research comprehensive?  Did the research show that this is a widespread problem that needs a new/innovative solution?  Explain!
    4. Are the design specifications clear, measurable, and feasible?  If so provide examples and if not provide examples with an explanation.     
    5. Give it a grade based on the rubric found in this document on page 109 (its the Part A Rubric)
      1. Design Tech Guide 2020.pdf    
      2. Justify your grade ____/9! 
  • Codega's working through your proposals -- individual feedback will be sent via email. 
  • Thanks guys!  Stay safe. 

 

 

4/28

  • Submit your 5 IA ideas (with client of course) via email to Codega.  Also explain the current situation so I have some sort of idea about the context of the problem.  This should be a short paragraph  -- that is all.  Thanks guys! 
    • "my client is _________ and the problem they have is ____________________________.  This is an issue because... 
    • NO SOLUTIONS HERE -- JUST PROBLEMS! 

 

4/26

  • IA TIME
  • HOMEWORK
    • Start thinking about potential clients.  With social distancing this makes it both easier and harder --  lots of people have time on their hands but meeting face to face isn't a thing sooooooo....take you time (what else do you have to do) and try to generate a list of potential clients and problems NOT problems and clients.  COme up with a list of 5 and be ready to submit them Tuesday.  

 

 

4/22 & 4/24

TOPIC 

  • 10 - Commercial Production 
    • 10.3 - Computer Integrated Manufacturing
    • 10.4 - Quality management

ESSENTIAL IDEA

  • 10.3 - Computer-integrated manufacturing uses computers to automatically monitor and control the entire production of a product.
  • 10.4 - Quality management focuses on producing products of consistent required quality.

CLASS ACTIVITIES

  • Quick check of the homework from last class... 
  • Again, quickly hit on the IA -- any more questions?
    • There seems to be some confusion about what I'm asking for on Friday... 
  • Your test will be ready to hand back....sometime?
  • Let's look at some more topic 10 stuff.
  •  

HOMEWORK

  • We;ll Zoom on Friday morning at 10am -- we need to start discussing the IA!  
    • With that in mind please take a look at Design Tech Guide 2020.pdf    and find the IA section (starts on pdf page 96 and page 86 on the actual document -- not sure why IB can never get those two numbers to be the same but oh well!).
      • We'll discuss in more detail on Friday but at least take a look at it.   

 

4/20

TOPIC 

  • 10 - Commercial Production 
    • 10.1 - Just in time vs. Just in case
    • 10.2 - Lean Production 

ESSENTIAL IDEA

  • 10.1 - Justin time and just in case are opposing strategies utilized by the manufacturer
  • 10.2 - Lean production aims to eliminate waste and maximize the value of a product based on the perspective of the customer.

CLASS ACTIVITIES

  • Time to discuss Topic 10 (it's topic 4's family)
    • Yup, these are some notes -- take them or whatever -- THESE WILL COME IN HANDY NEXT YEAR FOR THE IA -- I PROMISE

HOMEWORK

  • Start thinking about  3 clients and problems for the IA

 

4/8

Hey guys -- two things to do today:

  1. Take a look at this -- https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/08/business/coronavirus-jigsaw-puzzles.html?referringSource=articleShare
    1. Good link to production (and who knew that puzzles were so labor intensive!)  
    2. Email me back with two things you found interesting from this article from a Design Tech perspective. 
  2. Listen to this podcast -- https://99percentinvisible.org/episode/wipe-out/
    1. In the same email as above make two connections between this episode and the Design Tech syllabus
      1. Example:  theihasdha s apisjd asjd as dasd is related to TOPIC 5.3 - Innovation because.... 

That's all kids!  Have a great day and remember to social distance!

 

 

4/6

TOPIC

  • 4.3 -- Scales of Production
  • 4.6 -- Robots in Automated Production

ESSENTIAL IDEAS

  •  The scale of production depends on the number of products required.   
  • The development of increasingly sophisticated robotic manufacturing systems is transforming the way that products are made. 

CLASS ACTIVITIES 

 

 

4/2

  • Do something nice for yourself today instead of work for this class.  Read a book, go for a run, play video games, cook some food, practice lax, draw, OnShape, or whatever you need to do to relieve stress.  Your assignment is to take a picture of you doing something TODAY that you enjoy and send it to me FOR A GRADE.  You're welcome.
    • I will be grading IAs today and the rest of the weekend so you guys just take it easy today and we'll get back at it Monday.  Again, we'll Zoom next week just to check in and start to talk about your IA.  Take care everybody!

 

3/31

CORE TOPICS 

  • 4.3 - Scales of Production
  • 4.5 - Production Systems 

ESSENTIAL IDEAS

  • The scale of production depends on the number of products required. 
  • The development of increasingly sophisticated productions systems is transforming the way products are made.  

CLASS ACTIVITIES

HOMEWORK

    • Really start looking around/talking with possible clients for a possible topic for your IA
      • Remember, you are solving a problem
        • Be realistic

3/25 & 3/27

  • Production Scale/Systems Intro:
  • VOCAB
    • Find the definitions for the following terms and have them in your notebook --  use this document :
      • One off production
      • Batch production
      • continuous flow production
      • craft production
      • mechanized production
      • Automated production

        • Design for assembly
        • Design for disassembly

 

  • Since this is a lot of stuff let's say you have the next two (2) class periods to complete it.
