Industrial Technology Years 7–10 Syllabus

INDUSTRIAL TECHNOLOGY – ENGINEERING

Engineered Mechanisms – Core Module 2

Students learn about:

Students learn to:

OHS and Risk Management

(refer to Outcomes 5.1.1, 5.1.2, 5.4.2 on page 12)

identified hazards in the work environment

principles of risk management

clean and hygienic work practices

safely use hand and power tools, materials, finishes and equipment

select and use personal protective equipment

Materials

(refer to Outcomes 5.3.1, 5.3.2, 5.5.1 on pages 12–13)

the properties, structure and applications of materials related to engineered mechanisms:

toughness

malleability

corrosion resistance

torsional and shear strength

the classification of engineering materials

typical materials used in mechanisms

the modification of materials to improve their mechanical and chemical properties:

heat treatment

cladding

reinforcement

use materials in the design and production of mechanisms based on an understanding of their properties

experiment to understand properties such as:

toughness

strength, torsion and shear

corrosion resistance

malleability

classify materials into groups, eg:

metals – ferrous, non-ferrous, alloys

polymers – thermosetting, thermoplastic

ceramics – building ceramics, engineering ceramics

Equipment, Tools and Machines

(refer to Outcomes 5.2.2, 5.4.2, 5.5.1 on pages 12–13)

a range of equipment, tools and machines used in experiments, prototypes and products

use a range of equipment, hand and power tools to carry out experiments and construct projects/models in relation to engineered mechanisms

Engineering Principles and Processes

(refer to Outcomes 5.2.2, 5.4.2, 5.5.1 on pages 12–13)

the nature and purpose of mechanisms

components that make up mechanisms

the function and operation of mechanisms such as levers, pulleys, gears and cams

friction and its significance to the operation of mechanisms

mechanical advantage, velocity ratio and efficiency in mechanisms

methods of driving mechanisms

dismantle and assemble mechanisms to understand how they work

design and construct mechanisms for specific purposes

carry out experiments to demonstrate engineering principles

Links to Industry

(refer to Outcomes 5.5.1, 5.7.2 on page 13)

a range of engineering fields and traditional, current and emerging technologies that relate to engineering

describe different careers in engineering

Design

(refer to Outcomes 5.2.1, 5.5.1, 5.6.1 on pages 12–13)
