Courses of Study: Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources

Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources, Grade 9 - 12, Introduction to Drafting Design, 2009

1.) Relate the importance of drafting design technology in today's technological work force.

2.) Demonstrate the safe handling of drafting design tools according to classroom and environmental practices, procedures, and regulations.

3.) Demonstrate mathematic skills related to drafting design, including basic fractions, scale reading, and conversion of customary to metric and metric to customary measurements.

•  Solving higher-order mathematics applications
Example: calculating thread depth and pitch

•  Calculating architectural computations
Examples: area, rise and run

4.) Demonstrate use of drawing media and drafting instruments.

Examples: architectural scales, graphite, lead holders

•  Utilizing computer software for drafting applications
•  Reproducing drafting originals
Examples: print, plot, blueprint or photocopy

5.) Demonstrate drafting techniques for freehand sketching, lettering, geometric figures, and the alphabet of lines to create a drawing.

6.) Construct basic multi-view two-dimensional drawings, including visualizing principle views, creating third-angle projection, selecting proper drawing scale, and organizing layout of primary views.

7.) Apply dimensions and notes to multi-view drawings, utilizing American National Standards Institute (ANSI) dimensioning standards and decimal, metric, or dual dimensioning.

8.) Utilize CAD software to generate a multi-view drawing using appropriate file management techniques, basic drawing commands, and basic dimensioning techniques.

Examples: file management techniques—create, set up, and save files

- basic drawing commands—line, ellipse, circle, scale

- basic dimensioning techniques—linear, angular

•  Utilizing CAD software and computer to print a multi-view drawing
