Course Description: Design & Drafting I - is a computer aide design course that gives students the basic CAD, print reading and technical drawing skills necessary for developing working drawings used during Design & Drafting II. Pre-engineering students find this program useful for developing skills needed during future college or university training.
Prerequisite/Requirements: Be in Grade 10, Math Level of Geometry, 3.0 GPA, Turn in an Application by the announced deadline. Costs: $45 for ADDA Dues and Special Materials
Students are often recruited from Geometry class during Grade 9
All three levels of the Design & Drafting Course descriptions are available on the internet at:
CONCISE PHILOSOPHY STATEMENT
Drafting and drawing are basic to all education. The earliest efforts of man were first planned or sketched. The latest up-to-date efforts of mankind are drafted in detail before the first step is taken to construct the item. Computer Drafting and blueprint reading skills are general education, which help youth get ahead in the world of work.
GENERAL OBJECTIVES OF OUR DESIGN DRAFTING PROGRAM
Develop skills and knowledge in the drafting and print reading parts
Develop an insight into drafting and related occupations
Develop accuracy and craftsmanship in computer drafting.
Develop desirable work habits and the ability to work cooperatively.
Develop an understanding of all kinds of common graphic representations and the ability to express ideas by means of drawings and sketches.
Develop individual initiative and responsibilities as a person.
Develop an ability to identify problems and design solutions .
Stimulate the development of leadership qualities.
Develop occupational safety habits and understandings.
Develop social responsibilities enabling the student to take his or her place in life and be a worthy and useful citizen.

I. Colorado Department of Education Standards
Math Standard 4.1: Finding and analyzing relationships among geometric figures using transformations such as reflections, translations, rotations, dilations) in coordinate systems.
Science Standard 5: Students know and understand interrelationships among science, technology, and human activity and how they can affect the world.
Art Standard 1: Students will recognize and use the visual arts as a form of expression and communication.
Art Standard 3: Students will experience and apply various visual arts media and tools to develop techniques and skills.
Technology Standards 1:Students demonstrate a sound understanding of the nature and operation of technology systems.
Technology Standards 3: Students are proficient in the use of technology. Students use technology tools to enhance learning, increase productivity, and promote creativity. Students use productivity tools to collaborate in constructing technology-enhanced models, prepare publications, and produce other creative works.
Technology Standards 5: Students use telecommunications to collaborate, publish, and interact with peers, experts, and other audiences. Students use a variety of media and formats to communicate information and ideas effectively to multiple audiences.
Technology Standards 7: Technology problem-solving and decision-making tools. Students use technology resources for solving problems and making informed decisions. Students employ technology in the development of strategies for solving problems in the real world.
