This course allows students to apply Advanced Algebra and Geometry skills contained in the traditional Algebra 2/Trig course to the Engineering Design Process: Requirements, Analysis, Design, Build, Validation. Student groups will represent civil engineering firms who receive a Request For Proposal (RFP) from a school district in need of a new 21st Century state-of-the-art high school. Students employ the engineering process to design this high school, considering the parameters and requirements of the district while using math (linear equations and functions, quadratic equations and functions, polynomials, rational and radical functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, statistics and probability, and trigonometry) as a tool to make engineering decisions and complete the projects. Throughout the course, teams will keep an engineering notebook which documents all mathematical calculations, assumptions, notes, preliminary sketches, etc. to provide a “roadmap” of their final design assignment. Project Teams will continuously update their Know/Need To Know Lists Re: the RFP to include new information learned. These revised lists will be used by the teacher as a formative assessment on a recurring basis. The teacher will look for understanding of mathematical concepts as applied to the current engineering process. Upon completion of the course, students will be able to integrate the math topics and concepts with the Engineering Design Process to create a final report and presentation of their high school design aimed at an audience of school board members. |
