### Course abstract

The aim of the studying course is to create and develop geometrical logic, spatial thinking and imagination. The basic method used in course framework is the graphical method. The students get thought to draft and read drawings what is the international graphical method and means of expression of constructive thought.

### Learning outcomes and their assessment

• Knowledge - understands the projection method, view, and section view building principles. Knows solving methods of metric and positional tasks. Have a good knowledge of design of different geometrical shapes and its flat pattern views. Understands the concept of using auxiliary planes in topographical and central projections. The level of knowledge shall be determined by assessing the theoretical justification of the solution to graphical works. • Skills – can select the right method for solving metric and positional tasks. In practical tasks can use auxiliary planes in construction of different views. Students can plan fills and cuts of site terrain and construct the borderlines. Student can construct buildings in central projections. The level of skills shall be determined by assessing the quality of the performance of graphical works. • Competence – ability to apply professional knowledge of descriptive geometry and drawing skills in practical work and studies. The level of competence shall be determined by evaluating 2 test works and 2 independent works.

### Requirements for awarding credit points

Development and theoretical justification of 12 graphical tasks and 2 independently-excutable graphical tasks. Passed 2 tests and Exam.

### Description of the organization and tasks of students’ independent work

The graphical tasks in the laboratory work must be complete independently, in accordance with the conditions specified in the laboratory work. Theoretical justification of the solution to graphical task takes place after its completion, during laboratory work.
1.independently-excutable graphical work – intersection of pair of solids.
2.independently-excutable graphical work – metrical tasks.

### Criteria for Evaluating Learning Outcomes

• The level of knowledge shall be determined by: knowledge of terms, definitions interpretation, knowledge of techniques, comprehension of regularities. • The level of skills shall be determined by: graphical basic skills, skill to operate with knowledge, skill to analyze and predict, skill of creative activity. • The level of competence shall be determined by: Non-assisted quiz development using only the tools needed to perform graphic work. independently-excutable work has been developed without the assistance of the teaching staff. The level of knowledge, skills and competence is determined using summative assessment.
