Core Standards of the Course
Students will evaluate and select an appropriate type of table, chart, or graph to accurately communicate collected data for written work or presentations. (Data Representation and Presentation)
DESIGN PROCESS. STUDENTS LEARN ABOUT PROBLEM SOLVING AND HOW PRODUCTS ARE DEVELOPED TO INCLUDE HOW ENGINEERS WORK IN TEAMS. REPRESENTATIONS, KEEP AN ENGINEER'S NOTEBOOK, AND MAKE WRITTEN AND ORAL PRESENTATIONS.
Students will mathematically explain the mechanical advantage gained and explain the function of the six different types of simple machines in a presentation on the SMET device. (Mechanisms)
Students will give an oral presentation incorporating the first and second laws of thermodynamics, describing the concept and function of a heat engine of their choice. (Thermodynamics)
Students will be able to explain the difference between the area of a cross section of an object and the second moment of the area (Moment of Inertia) and predict the relative strength of one shape vs. another. (Strength of Materials)
The student will be able to formulate conclusions through analysis of recorded laboratory test data for presentations in the form of charts, graphs, written, verbal, and multi-media formats. (Properties of Materials)
Students will give an oral presentation on the production processes used to create products from a category of materials and a demonstration about one of the processes. (Production Process)
Students will be able to understand and explain why companies have a need for quality control and will describe what customers and companies refer to when the term “quality” is used. (Quality Assurance)
Students will be able to calculate the mean, median, mode, and standard deviation for a set of data and apply that information to an understanding of quality assurance. (Quality Assurance)
Students will understand how control charts are used in industry and will be able to predict whether a process is “out of control,” or not by using a control chart. (Quality Assurance)
Students will be able to describe and safely conduct destructive and non-destructive material testing and will be able to use the data collected through these tests to compute and document mechanical properties. (Material Testing Processes)
ENGINEERING FOR QUALITY AND RELIABILITY. STUDENTS WILL USE PRECISION MEASUREMENT TOOLS TO GATHER AND APPLY STATISTICS FOR QUALITY AND PROCESS CONTROL. STUDENTS WILL ALSO LEARN ABOUT RELIABILITY, REDUNDANCY, RISK ANALYSIS, FACTORS OF SAFETY, AND LIABILITY AND ETHICS.
Students will analyze an engineering failure for the purpose of presenting an aural report which identifies; causes, damage done, design failures, and other areas where the failure has impacted the environment or society. (Case Study)
Students will design and produce a three-fold pamphlet to include an explanation of their ballistic device, drawings and a summarization of data recorded from experiments. (Trajectory Motion)
