Your assignment will be to create, in your engineering notebook, a series of sketched illustrations of the various solid objects shown in the slide show above, along with the necessary calculations to accomplish the exercise as it shall be explained below.
You will use the dial calipers to determine all of the necessary measurements needed for each shape to acquire the surface area and volume. That information may require Height, Depth, Width, diameter, radius, area of the base of the object, etc...
Use the formula sheet below to assist you with your calculations. Notice that when you see a CAPITAL letter in the formula it represents an AREA...not just a linear dimension...so be careful as you calculate. The sheet has more details about expectations of performance and outcomes listed on it so please read through the whole thing before you begin. Do your best and neatest work. This goes into your engineering notebook...which is a permanent record of your process.
NO ERASING IN ENGINEERING NOTEBOOK So if you are unsure of something you can work it out on scratch paper and then reproduce it in a neat and organized manner. it is not as much about perfection and correctness ans detailed recording of your process for analysis later, by you or others.

The rubric below will be used as a peer evaluation tool for you to assess your group members. Once you are instructed to, you will assess each member (one rubric for each member will be completed) and then attach that assessment to a message on engrade to Mr. Taylor for his final evaluation. You must be honest...your grade will affected as it shall be 33% Peer Assessment and 66% Instructor Assessment, based upon the criteria in the above rubric.
Mr. Taylor reserves the right to question you privately about your assessments if he feels that you are not taking this seriouskly; as in just evaluating someone who is your friend highly, or your enemy lowly. I will not question your honest assessments...I just want honesty about how helpful a work partner your group members actually were.
