This is grading for both sections for the second scavenger hunt – grading for this round had higher expectations and the second scavenger hunt #2 requires annotation. Without annotation your submission cannot receive an A grade.
The department is looking to make modifications to the first two years of our program (AAS) and we would like to get your input. Please take this ASAP and forward it to any friends in any of your other classes. Your opinion is very important.
Thanks – Professor King
One of my responsibilities outside of the classroom is that of scholarship – a role that unfortunately will result in my missing classes this week as I will be presenting the work of our college in the Solar Decathlon at a national conference in Albuquerque New Mexico. I have arranged class coverage as follows:
Class Day Time Coverage by Topic
Btech3 Tues. 2:30-5:30 Alexander Aptekar Revit / Stairs
Btech3 Wed. 11:30 – 2:30 Jieun Yang Revit / Stairs
Btech3 Thurs. 2:30-5:30 Jieun Yang Revit / Elevators
Btech3 Friday 11:30 – 2:30 Alexander Aptekar Revit / Elevators
Both of the classes are at about the same place in the process of developing their buildings – having completed the grids of the buildings, foundation walls and concrete columns in the basement. This includes the foundation slab as well and moving the base offset of the columns and foundation walls to match the thickness of the foundation slab – typically -6”.
To prepare for class try to add the following:
Class this week will focus on the development of vertical circulation including your elevators & stair cores and the mechanical shafts. Hopefully when I return next week each team will have these located and drawn in their project files. Remember to pay attention to the location of stairs, travel distance etc. Each of you should have a minimum of two fire rated enclosed stairs and a third “celebratory” stair in the lobby that is not enclosed. The celebratory stair does not have to connect to every floor but should facilitate good traffic flow in your buildings.
For now you can skip the addition of concrete beams supporting the first floor concrete slab and the steel columns and beams supporting the upper floors – we will do this when I return.
You should also begin to think about where walls will go on the floor plans – but please do not draw them yet.
I will check email and our OpenLab website when I can –
Sorry that I am not there with you this week –
Please submit any missing assignments ASAP.
There is a limit for late submission after which the grade will stand as an F. While each deadline is different an assignment generally can only be late by two classes – or 1 week.
If you submitted recent work late it may not yet be graded. Remember all graded work is to be uploaded to blackboard and should include a PDF and the original files.
Scavenger Hunt #1 and #2 have been graded. Below you will see statistics showing where your grades stand relative to your classmates.
I have decided to allow an additional submission of the second Scavenger Hunt (will be number 3 in blackboard) – which you should complete after you review the marked-up PDF I uploaded for each of you. It will be due the week we start class again.
Also – a number of you are still missing assignments – they must be uploaded ASAP.
The schedule has become a bit confused due to all of the holidays. The two classes are also now out of sequence as the Wed/Friday class has met twice this week and the Tues/Thursday has not met at all. We should all be back in sync in about a week.
Both classes are being given the same amount of time to complete assignments based on when they were first assigned.
To clarify deadlines- and uploads to blackboard. All assignments are now listed on blackboard. Please meet the following deadlines for submission.
For all team assignments only one member of the team is required to upload the presentation. Please be certain to read and adhere to the requirements in Blackboard.
The two classes are now on a different schedule. For the group that has started the Scavenger Hunt – it is due today!
There are three current active assignments as follows:
