Mathematics TEKS Refinement 2006 – 9-12Tarleton State UniversityActivity:Picture This!TEKS:This activity supports teacher content knowledge needed for:(G.6) Dimensionality and the geometry of location. The studentanalyzes the relationship between three-dimensional geometric figuresand related two-dimensional representations and uses theserepresentations to solve problems.The student is expected to:(C) use orthographic and isometric views of three-dimensionalgeometric figures to represent and construct threedimensional geometric figures and solve problems.Overview:This activity encourages participants to explore and draw orthographicand isometric views. It explores some non-technical aspects oforthographic drawings and the relationship between isometric andorthographic drawings.Materials:Isometric dot paperGrid paperSnap cubesRulersTransparencies: 1-8 (pages 5-11 – 5-18)Isometric dot paper (1 per participant) and transparencies (1 per group)Three-dimensional cube modelHandout 1 (pages 5-4 – 5-5)Handout 2 (pages 5-6 – 5-8)Handout 3 (pages 5-9 – tricorthographicperspectivevanishing pointGrouping:Each participant should complete these activities. Participants maywork in groups of 3-4 so that they can help one another.Time:1 to 1 ½ hoursPicture This!5-1

Mathematics TEKS Refinement 2006 – 9-12Lesson:ProceduresPart I:1. Distribute Handout 1, Part 1 Diagrams,(pages 5-4 – 5-5) to participants and atleast one model of a cube to eachgroup. Have participants determinewhich of the diagrams could represent acube.2. Provide participants with Handout 2,Drawings in Two-Dimensions, (pages5-6 – 5-8) terms with definitions.Discuss and define perspective views,vanishing point, axonometric views andorthographic views.Have participants decide in their groupswhich type of drawing each diagramfrom Handout 1 represents. Groupsshould be prepared to share theirchoices with the whole group.Part II:3. Distribute two pre-made snap cubeexamples, a transparency of isometricdot paper (see Materials List for a link tothis), and transparency pens to eachgroup; also provide a sheet of isometricdot paper for each participant.Have each participant sketch theisometric view of the given example,and then have the group sketch theview onto their transparency. Eachgroup will share its result.4. Give participants a sheet of grid paperand have them sketch the threeorthographic views (front, side and top).Tarleton State UniversityNotesParticipants should be in groups fordiscussion; allow time for discovery that allof these diagrams represent a cube.Ask the participants why the diagrams ofthe cube in Part I look so different.The diagrams show the cube fromdifferent angles and perspectives.(See discussion of vocabulary below)Transparencies 1-6 (pages 5-11 – 5-16)for each diagram are provided.Be sure to bring the participants backtogether for a whole class discussion.The trainer can make two of the givensample shapes, or make two simpleshapes of his/her own.Optional: To save prep time, have theparticipants build the models shown onTransparency 7 (page 5-17).Volunteers may share their sketches withthe class.Give each group a new set of pre-made Trainer can choose any of the remaining(more challenging) examples and repeat sample shapes, or create their own.the process.Picture This!5-2

Mathematics TEKS Refinement 2006 – 9-12ProceduresPart III:6. Distribute Handout 3, IsometricDrawings, (pages 5-9 – 5-10). Haveparticipants practice creating isometricdrawings from orthographic viewswithout the aid of three-dimensionalmodels.Bring the participants back together fora whole class discussion and to analyzetheir drawings.Questions to ask: “What difference do you see betweenthe orthographic drawings of diagram1 and diagram 2?” “How can the orthographic drawingsbe changed to include additionalinformation differentiating diagram 1and diagram 2?”Tarleton State UniversityNotesOn Handout 3, what is the differencebetween the orthographic drawings ofdiagram 1 and diagram 2? (see page 510)They are the same!There are easy solutions to this dilemma.Try adding segments in the drawing tooutline the cube faces seen in each view.Indicate different distances from theviewer to different parts of the orthogonaldrawings by using different line weights.Faces nearest the viewer can be outlinedwith dark segments. Faces one cubefarther away can be a medium weight andfaces two cubes farther away can be alight or dashed segment. Alternatively,add segments in the top view to outline thecube faces and number the squares toindicate the number of cubes in the“stack.” (See Transparency 8 (page 5-18)for solutions) These drawings are called“mats.”Show a Transparency 8 after discussion.Extensions:Picture This!After students have learned to draw orthographic and isometric figures,they can investigate surface area and volume. Initially, they can usesnap cube models, but as visualization skills improve, there should beless dependence on models and more interpretation from the diagrams.5-3

Mathematics TEKS Refinement 2006 – 9-12Tarleton State UniversityPICTURE THIS!Drawings in Two-DimensionsUse the definitions below to determine which of these descriptions best fits each of thesketches given in Part I.Perspective View: The technique of portraying solid objects and spatial relationships ona flat surface. There are numerous methods of depicting an object, depending uponthe purpose of the drawing.Vanishing Point: In an artistic perspective drawing, receding parallel lines (lines that runaway from the viewer) converge at a vanishing point on the horizon line. Thismaintains a realistic appearance of the object depicted, even as the vantage pointchanges.Orthographic Drawing: Ortho means “straight” and the views in orthographic drawingsshow the faces of a solid as though you are looking at them “head-on” from the top,front or side. Orthographic drawings are used in engineering drawings to convey allthe necessary information of how to make the part to the manufacturing department.The line of sight is perpendicular to the surfaces of the object. Two conventions areused in technical drawings. These are first angle and third angle, which differ only inposition of the plan (top, front, and side views). They are derived from the method ofprojection used to transfer two-dimensional views onto an imaginary, transparentbox surrounding the object being drawn. This is not a distinction the state of Texashas seen fit to recognize in the TEKS.appears astopPicture This!frontright sideHandout 2-15-6

Mathematics TEKS Refinement 2006 – 9-12Tarleton State UniversityA common use of a “top” orthographicview is the floor plan of a house or otherbuilding.Axonometric drawing: A two-dimensional drawing showing three dimensions of anobject. The vantage point is not perpendicular to a surface of the object beingdrawn. Axonometric means, “to measure along the axes.” There are threetypes: isometric, dimetric, and trimetric.Isometric Drawing: A two-dimensional drawing thatshows three sides of an object in one view. Thevantage point is 45 to the side and above theobject being viewed. The resulting angle betweenany two axes appears to be 120 . Isometricmeans, “one measure.” In this view, 90 anglesappear to be 120 or 60 .120 120 120 Video games, such as SimCity 2000,frequently use isometric drawingsCourtesy Electronic Arts, Inc.Picture This!Handout 2-25-7
