Course abstract

The aim of the study course is to investigate the geometric shapes forming the environment and their mutual relations, to find out the relevant regularities and apply them in solving practical tasks, to promote the development of the student's logical analytical thinking, visual spatial perception and creative abilities. To master the use of graphic methods. Learn to make and read drawings.

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 4 graphical tasks and passed 4 test works and final test work.

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.

Criteria for Evaluating Learning Outcomes

• The level of knowledge shall be determined by:
knowledge of terms, definitons 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.
