Learners examine the use of the tolerances displayed in a title block by calculating the minimum and maximum allowable size of a fabricated part. In a brief quiz, students determine whether a part is usable or should be scrapped.
In this interactive object, learners examine standard and metric thread specifications used in engineering drawings. In a brief quiz, they identify various internal and external thread representations.
In this screencast, students demonstrate an understanding of summary writing by reading step-by-step instructions and then summarizing short paragraphs. Examples of summaries that are poorly written, as well as those that are written well, are included.
In this interactive object, learners examine sectional views used in engineering drawings. The sections shown are full, half, offset, aligned, revolved, and broken-out. Learners match drawings of sectional views with the names of the views.
Learners study animations to see the connection between temperature and resistance as they examine the operation of an RTD. A table is used to convert resistance readings to the corresponding temperatures. A brief quiz completes the activity.
