    Course Description: 1300101-Introduction to Manufacturing Technology

    Prerequisite: None

    Intro to Manufacturing Technology is taught through a laboratory-based design-and-construct approach,-on projects, textbooks, worksheets, and other written assignments involving the use of technological equipment and materials. This course will help students discover their interest and talents in technical areas and explore their potential for careers in the technical professions.

    Content of this course will allow students to explore various elements of construction, machining, transportation, and manufacturing clusters. This is a core requirement for students planning to take any of the following vocational programs: Automotive Technology, Drafting Technology, Machining Technology and Welding Technology. Students will participate in various methods of learning from instructor lectures, demonstrations, and hands on activities.

    Purpose Statement:

      The purpose of this class is to help you understand what career path you may want to explore more in the future. The Drafting Technology rotation explores designing for product development, architectural drafting, mechanical drafting, and principals of engineering. Student learning is centered around hands on activities to build core knowledge and problem solving skills.

    Expectations of Students:

    • Conduct themselves in a safe manner at all times.
    • Have a positive attitude that reflects integrity and service to others.
    • Be respectful to other students, staff, and teachers.

    Attendance Policy:

            Regular attendance and punctuality is very important; students with good attendance do better. We will follow the school attendance policy regarding absence and tardiness. It is the responsibility of the student to ask for missed assignments. When there are no classroom assignments students are given daily objective points for participating on drafting project. A student who has missed a day is still required to make up missed daily points. Students can make those points up with a design or drafting related article summary, vocabulary definitions, or complete a related service project.

              If a student’s situation results in an extended excused absents please make prior arrangements for assignments. Unexcused absences cannot be made up.

    Cell Phone and Electronics Policy:

    Cell phones are not to be out or in use at any time. Headphones ore earbuds are not to be out or in use at any time. (This policy is displayed in the classroom). Acceptable use of cell phones is strictly with the teacher permission, which includes: Use as a calculator, or research. Confiscated cell phones will be taken to the front office.



    Classroom Policies and Procedures:

    • Class begins when the bell rings. You should be at your workstation and prepared to listen to instruction or begin work after attendance is taken.
    • Clean up is five minutes before the end of the hour and not before. All students are expected to clean up their work area before leaving the classroom.
    • No students are to leave the classroom without permission.

    Grading Procedure:  

    40% à Daily Objectives: Students are award 10 point per day of production on the shop floor. These 10 points are assessed on the student’s ability to be safe on the shop floor, participate in hands on training activities and demonstrations, staying focused on one’s project, and participating with the cleanup of the shop. When a student is absent the daily objective points can be recovered with a one page written summary of a topic related journal article.

    30% à Assignments: Consist of using classroom sets to complete guided reading activities and question prompts. Includes completion of charts/graphs, and sketches

    30% à Quizzes and Tests: Consist of formal written assessments, and informal demonstrations of skills

    The Grading Scale as follows:

                              100 - 93 is an A                          73 - 76 is a C

                              90 - 92 is an A-                           70 - 72 is a C-

                              87 - 89 is a B+                            67 - 69 is a D+

                              83 - 86 is a B                              63 - 66 is a D

                              80 - 82 is a B-                             60 - 62 is a D-

                              77 - 79 is a C+                             0  - 59 is an E


    The use of tobacco, drugs, or alcohol will result in the loss of all daily points along with the predefined procedures in the Parent/Student Handbook and may cause a nine-week failing grade. Fighting will also result in the loss of all daily points along with the predefined procedures in the Parent/Student Handbook and may cause a nine-week failing grade. Throwing of any objects will result in the loss of all daily points and may result in a nine-week failing grade.

    Students are expected to dress and participate in lab and all assignments given. Nonparticipation in labs will result in loss of daily points. Nonparticipation of assignments and assessments will result in a zero on that assignment or assessment.

    M.I.T.E.S. Competition (Michigan Industrial Technology Education Society):

    Students in this program are encouraged to enter a project in the (M.I.T.E.S) Michigan Industrial and Technology Education Society regional competition. Those who receive a 1st thru 4th place ribbon at regionals qualify to move onto State competition. The competition dates vary, but usually take place in the month of May.
