COURSE OUTLINE

 

INTRODUCTION

IT71 Welding I, is an introductory course in welding. It introduces students to basic theories, fundamentals, and skills required for oxyacetylene gas welding (OAW) and  cutting (OFC), Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), also called “stick welding, and a brief introduction into Gas Metal Arc Welding(GMAW), also known as MIG.  The course also familiarizes students with career opportunities in the welding industry, steel production, fundamental metallurgy, welding mathematics, welding and shop safety, grinding, weldment testing, and metal cutting.  This course is intended to be both classroom and shop oriented in order to establish fundamental knowledge and skills needed for higher level shop intensive courses.

Each CTE program leads to college and career pathways, giving students the opportunity to earn industry certificates and dual enrollment credits. We not only teach kids the technical skills for a career, but the employability skills that will help them keep the job. 

 

IT71 WELDING I, WILL REQUIRE SIGNIFICANT TECHNICAL READING AND

WRITTEN HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS

 

Completion of the required written  assignments, assigned welds, final examinations, participation and maintenance of a passing grade will be required to advance to IT72 Welding II.

 

COURSEWORK

Reading assignments along with written assignments will be given during class.  Shop requirements include the completion of specifically assigned welds in oxyacetylene gas welding (OAW), Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) and Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW).  The final examination consists of a written and practical exam (trophy weld) using either oxyacetylene gas welding (OAW), shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) or gas metal arc welding (GMAW).

 

IT71 Welding I, is a fee course and carries with it a $20.00 charge (Payable at the time of registration or at the Westwood Bookstore).  This fee covers all materials consumed in order to complete course requirements.

*Extra credit is available according to the information on the grading policy.

 

COURSE GOALS

  

1.    To teach the student about occupational opportunities in the welding

       industry and related careers.

 

2.    To teach the student about modern metal manufacturing methods and

       basic metallurgy.

 

3.    To teach the student skills necessary for measurement and basic

       welding mathematics.

7.    To teach the student good work habits.

 

8.    To teach the student the manipulative skills in oxyacetylene welding (OAW).

 

9.    To teach the student the manipulative skills for shielded metal arc welding (SMAW).

 

10.  To teach the student the manipulative skills for Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW)

 

11.  To teach the student the manipulative skills for cutting, grinding, and

       weldment testing.

 

 

ATTENDANCE POLICY

 

FOR A STUDENT TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN HIGH SCHOOL OR IN THE WORK PLACE, DAILY ATTENDANCE AND PUNCTUALITY IS ESSENTIAL.  THE WESTWOOD HIGH SCHOOL ATTENDANCE POLICY STATES THAT IN ORDER TO PREVENT STUDENTS FROM UNKNOWINGLY LOSING CRREDIT, THE ATTNEDANCE OFFICE WILL GENERATE ABSENCE LETTERS AT 4, 7 AND 10 ABSENCES.  THESE LETTERS WILL BE USED TO NOTIFY STUDENTS AND PARENTS/GUARDIANS OF ATTENDANCE PROBLEMS AND POLICIES.

 

WHEN A STUDENT ACCUMULATES 4 ABSENCES IN ONE OR MORE CLASSES, THE ATTENDANCE OFFICE WILL AUTOMATICALLY MAIL OUT AN ABSENCE LETTER.  AT THIS TIME, THE ATTENDANCE OFFICE WILL MAKE A PHONE CALL TO THE PARENT/GUARDIAN.

 

WHEN A STUDENT ACCUMULATES 10 ABSENCES IN ONE OR MORE CLASSES, THE ATTENDANCE OFFICE WILL MAIL HOME A “LOSS OF CREDIT” LETTER WITH AN APPEAL FORM ATTACHED.  THE ATTENDANCE OFFICE WILL ALSO INFORM THE ASSISSTANT PRINCIPAL.  THE GRADE LEVEL ADMINISTRATOR WILL MEET WITH THE STUDENT AND INFORM HIM/HER OF THE AUDIT APPEAL PROCESS.

 

*TARDIES AND ABSENCES WILL AFFECT OVERALL GRADE.  WELDING IS A “CAREER READY” CLASS, THEREFORE, PUNCTUALITY WILL BE ENFORCED.

 

GRADING POLICY

 

STUDENTS WILL ACCUMULATE POINTS FOR VARIOUS ACTIVITIES, ASSIGNMENTS, TESTS, PROJECTS AND CLASS/LAB PARTICITPATION. THESE POINTS WILL BE TOTALED AT THE END OF EACH GRADING PERIOD.  PERCENTAGES WILL BE CALCULATED TY TAKING TOTAL OF ALL POINTS ACCUMULATED, THEN DIVIDING BY THE HIGHEST POINT TOTAL ATTAINABLE.  PERCENTAGES USED TO DETERMINE GRADES ARE AS FOLOWS:

 

                        PERCENTAGE                                     LETTER GRADE

                        100 – 90                                               A – SUPERIOR

                          89 – 80                                               B – ABOVE AVERAGE

                          79 – 70                                               C – AVERAGE

                          69 – 60                                               D – BELOW AVERAGE

                          59 – 0                                                 F – FAIL/NO CREDIT

 

SEMESTER GRADES WILL BE BASED ON ACCUMULATED POINTS EARNED FOR THE FIRST NINE WEEKS, THE SECOND NINE WEEKS AND FINAL EXAM.

 

IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE STUDENT TO MAKE UP ANY MISSED WORK.  LATE ASSIGNMENTS WILL BE ACCEPTED AS LONG AS THERE HAS NOT BEEN A FINAL DEADLINE IMPOSED.

 

EXTRA CREDIT CAN BE EARNED ONLLY IF ALL REQUIRED ASSIGNMENTS AND PROJECTS HAVE BEEN COMPLETED.  ALL EXTRA CREDIT PROJECTS MUST BE APPROVED BY THE INSTRUCTOR.  EXTRA CREDIT CAN ONLY BE COMPLETED IN THE WESTWOOD LABORATORY.

 

NOTE: EXTRA CREDIT WORK CAN ACCOUNT FOR ONLY A ONE LETTER GRADE INCREASE FOR THE FINAL GRADE.
