Year 9 Engineering Unit 3: MAKING ENGINEERED PRODUCTS

In this unit you are going to make a range of engineered products.

By the end of this unit you will:-

  • Be able to ‘read’ an engineering drawing.
  • Be able to measure and accurately ‘Mark out’ materials.
  • Be able to identify different engineering tools & equipment.
  • Be able to select the correct engineering tools & equipment needed to make an engineered product.
  • Be able to use engineering tools & equipment correctly.
  • Be able to ‘Evaluate’ a completed engineered product.
  • To be able to identify risks in the workshop

You will complete Four practical projects by reading engineering drawings and using tools and equipment .

Always engineer what you make to the highest possible standard; you will not be allowed to take home anything you have made that is not well finished, and most importantly,safe to use.

Be able to ‘read’ an engineering drawing. 1.1

Read and interpret engineering drawings.

I can identify the units, metric or imperial, used to produce the drawing. I can talk about the scale used to produce the drawing. I can identify some different lines and measurements. I can read a drawing and identify a range of drawing elements: hidden detail, centre lines, construction lines, dimension lines, materials used, date, and scale. I can say whether the drawing is 2D or 3D identifying the projection used; isometric, third angle orthographic. I can confidently and independently read a drawing identifying a range of drawing elements: hidden detail, centre lines, construction lines, dimension lines, materials used, date, and scale. I can say whether the drawing is 2D or 3D identifying the projection used; isometric, first or third angle orthographic.
Be able to measure and accurately ‘Mark out’ materials. 1.2

Select and use engineering marking out tools.

With some help and guidance I can use marking out tools to mark out the materials I will use to make my engineered product. I can select and use, with minimal guidance, marking out tools to mark out the materials I will use to make my engineered product. I can identify an engineer’s steel rule, pencil, Scriber, Engineer’s square, Marking gauge, Centre/dot punch, Callipers. I can confidently and independently select and use marking out tools to mark out the materials I will use to make my engineered product. I can identify an engineer’s steel rule, pencil, Scriber, Engineer’s square, Marking gauge, Centre/dot punch, Callipers.
Be able to identify different engineering tools & equipment. 1.3

Describe the purpose of common engineering tools & equipment found in an engineering environment.

I can name and write a sentence about at least 3 engineering tools. I can sketch or find a picture of each. I can describe the purpose of at least 5 examples of engineering tools & equipment. I am able to find pictures or sketch them, and add descriptive labels. I can describe in detail the purpose of a wide range of engineering tools & equipment. I can identify and write about variations in the equipment.

I am able to find pictures, sketch them, and add descriptive labels.

Be able to Select the correct engineering tools & equipment needed to make an engineered product. 1.4

Select the most appropriate common engineering tools & equipment for an identified purpose.

With some guidance I am able to select the correct tool required to complete a given practical task. I am able to select the correct engineering tools & equipment required to complete a given practical task.

I am able to say why the tool is the most appropriate for the task I have been given.

I am able to select the correct engineering tools & equipment required to complete a given practical task.

I am able to clearly explain why the tool is the most appropriate by comparing to other engineering tools & equipment.

Be able to use engineering tools & equipment correctly. 1.5

Perform operations with common engineering tools & equipment, for an identified purpose.

I am able to use a range of engineering tools & equipment with some success. I may need help and guidance whilst using them. I am able to use a range of engineering tools & equipment. I can adjust and alter my techniques to improve ease of use, and quality of outcome. I use the tools with little help or guidance. I am able to demonstrate skill and ability with a range of engineering tools & equipment. I am able to adjust, develop and modify my techniques through analysis and evaluation. I use the tools independently and can offer some guidance to my peers.
Be able to ‘Evaluate’ a completed engineered product. 1.6

Perform a product evaluation on the engineered product made in the academy workshop.

I am able to write sentences that describe what I have managed to achieve by making my engineered product. I can suggest ways that I could improve or modify my product. I am able to write in some detail about the processes I have used to make my product. I can suggest ways to improve or modify my product. I can make suggestions about alternative materials that could have been used to make my product. I am able to write in detail about the processes I have used to make my product. I can suggest ways to improve or modify my product. I can write in detail about alternative materials and techniques that could have been used to make my product.
To be able to identify risks in the workshop 1.7

Demonstrate a safe working environment throughout

I am able to work safely in a workshop, and recall 3 of the safety rules. I am able to work safely in the workshop. I have due respect for my own safety and that of others. I am able to carry out a risk assessment on at least two of the engineering tools & equipment I have used.
