    Course Expectations, Goals & Routines

     

    We will follow the hand book on matters such as tardiness, attendance, use of electronics devices, respect to others, eating in class, etc.  Students will be assigned a locker and safety glasses for use in the class.  Students will be responsible for returning both at the end of class.  Students are responsible for the safe keeping of their project and belongings in class.  Students will receive a grade for daily work in the shop. This will be recorded on a weekly basis.  Students will be required to follow all safety rules and procedures given in class. Students must keep a notebook with all assignments, note and handouts from the class.

    MANUFACTURING PROCESSES A & B (Metals I)

    Manufacturing Processes is a course that specializes in using modern manufacturing processes to obtain resources and change them into industrial materials, industrial products and consumer products. Activities provide an understanding of the characteristics and properties of industrial materials and the processing of these materials into consumer goods. Students will investigate the properties of engineered materials such as: metallics; polymers; ceramics; and composites. After gaining a working knowledge of these materials, students will study six major types of material processes: casting and molding; forming; separating; conditioning; finishing; and assembling. In this course, each of these processes is a major body of content. It is through the study of common principles, supported by related laboratory and problem solving activities, that understanding is developed and reinforced.

    ·         Grade Levels: 10 – 12

    ·         Credits: 2 trimester course for 2 credits

    ·         Charge for individual project will be assessed

    ·         Counts as a Directed Elective or Elective for the General, Core 40, Core 40 with Academic Honors and Core 40 with Technical Honors diplomas

    ·         A Career Academic Sequence, Career-Technical program, or Flex Credit course.
