Week 1

Intro to CADD

Get to know students

Review class room procedures

Introduce software and hardware

Introduce class content

Start SolidWorks basics


SWAT identify instructor, other classes taught by instructor, and instructor experience.

SWAT respect classroom behavioral guidelines.

SWAT clearly state how grades are earned in this class.

Instructional Strategies

Teacher Centered Lecture and Student Discussion


1) Review classroom behavioral guidelines.

a) Any vandalism or malfunctions report to instructor.

b) Three lates reported to attendance for assigned detention.

c) Bathroom passes and sign-out sheet

d) No games.

e) No web usage during class time with out permission from the instructor.

f) You may use Headphones.

g) Always print to the laser first as a low cost and fast test print.

h) Students dismiss from their seats.

2) Grading

a) All drawings will be corrected and returned until they are acceptable.

b) The drawing grades total is based on the number of acceptable drawings completed.

c) Work is kept in CADD/Your Teachers Name/Class Period/Your Name.

d) Progress grades will be posted bi-weekly.

e) Place each project in a clearly named folder.

f) Place your name on every drawing.

g) Quizzes, tests, and finals will be given in the form of multiple-choice using netsupport, drawings and essays.

h) Grades will be total points

i) Students and their parents may view their grades using Power School. Please see the web page for details on how to access this service.

Assessment of Objectives

Students will act in accordance to classroom behavioral guidelines.

Students will regularly turn in assessments including drawings and take quizzes and tests according to the above outline procedures.

State Standards




SWAT log in to AGSD

SWAT use their student folder to save their work.

SWAT use the teacher created folders to submit work to be graded.

Get to know students and student needs.

a) Ask students why they took the class and what about their career objectives.

b) Ask them about themselves, how do they identify themselves?

Instructional Strategies

Teacher guided computer activity


1) Log in and Folder Creation

a) Have all students log on to AGSD

b) If a machine says locked by .. Turn the machine off by holding in the power button for 10 seconds or so and restart

c) Teacher will assist students with log in troubles.

d) Help desk request will be made for any Password changes

e) Teacher will guide students to basic computer controls CD, USB Ports, Monitor controls etc.

f) Teacher will guide students to location of CADD folder by shortcut on desktop

g) Students will make folders, set security, and create a shortcut

h) Review good file naming habits and the importance of saving every few minutes or after each major change.

i) Students will save documents in CADD folder not students P:

Optional Interview

2) Have Students create Word Document in there folder answering identity questions.

Interview Questions

Your name:


Math class:


Why did you take this class and what are your post-secondary plans? How are the related?

What other Tech Ed courses have you had?

Is anyone in your family involved in engineering, architecture and the building trades or any other technical profession? If so What?

Have you ever used any type of 3D modeling program and if so what?

Assessment of Objectives

All students will be log on to AGSD

All students will have located needed programs and folders as demonstrated by teacher observation of monitors.

Students will submit interview.doc into to work folder

30 Minute Lesson

State Standards

a) SWAT Produce measured 2D CAD drawings.

b) SWAT Produce measured 3D CAD drawings.

c) SWAT Produce a simple residential floor plan using CAD.

2) General Objectives for Computer Habits

a) SWAT use MS Word to take notes

b) SWAT Name, Save and Manipulates files

c) SWAT Recognize the .SLDPRT extension

d) SWAT use the standardized Windows interface

e) SWAT use the SolidWorks interface

Instructional Strategies

Teacher centered lecture

Teacher guided computer activity


Review General Objectives for the Course

Create a folder named Notebook>create a .DOC file named Notes

Teacher Open SolidWorks (SW)

Basic Windows functions, Maximize/Minimize, Panels/Panes, Click (Left), Right Click, Save As/Save, Help

Short cut to desk top = C:> programs> SolidWorks,> right click on SolidWorks.exe>send to desktop as short cut



SolidWorks can work in many different measurement systems

Tools>Options>document Properties> Units> MMGS

Teacher will demonstrate design intent then dimension philosophy

Always start the first sketch on the origin

The Cursor is intelligent

Parts are made of one continuous piece of material

Assemblies are made of Parts

Parts are made of Features

Features are made of sketches

Sketches are on planes

Drawing are made of Parts or assemblies or both

Sketch, Smart Dimension, Feature, Model/Part

Planes, Feature Manager Tree (history of a part)

Property Manager

Parts, Assembly, Drawing

Have students free draw to get a feel for SW

Shown them Edit material to get a realistic look to their Parts

Assessment of Objectives

Students will have opened a .doc and started to take notes as observed by teacher.

Students will have resized windows panels as observed by teacher.
