# Activity 3

 Author: Marie Pollitt Lesson Title: Challenge Activity Title: The Golden Ratio Lesson Duration: 5 days Activity Duration: 3 days Setting: Classroom (with internet access and 1:1 chromebooks) Date: July 15, 2016
###### Activity Objectives:
• Students will create a 2-D, detailed, sketch for their graphic design.
• Students will create a 2-D, technological sketch for their graphic design usings desmos.
###### Activity Guiding Questions:
• What does a graphic designer do?
• What stages does a graphic designer go through when designing a logo?
• What makes a sketch a “good” sketch?
• How detailed do sketches need to be?
• What is a reference point for the sketch?
• What is the scale size for the sketch?
• Why is it important to make a sketch that is to scale and detailed?
• What is desmos and how does it work?
• How do you restrict the domain/range of functions in desmos?
###### Materials:

Have graph paper ready for student to create sketch.

###### Activity Procedures:

Day 4

• Students begin to sketch multiple iterations of possible design.
• Task 1: Students each brainstorm a design
• Task 2: Students select a final brainstorm to begin sketching
• **fill out EDP WS and get approved by design CEO (teacher).
• ***Checkpoint: end of the day, must choose one as a team, approved by Ms. A

Day 5

• Students begin to make a detailed 2-D sketch using a coordinate grid and symmetry.
• Discuss with students what a “good sketch” entails and how specific they need to be.
• Let them learn this on their own – it may take them multiple sketches before its approved.
• Tell students they should be able to give their sketch to someone else in order to create the design in desmos.
• Checkpoint: by end of day, must have completed sketch approved by Ms. A.
• **Includes Select, Implement, Evaluate Solution, Communicate, and Refine Solution of EDP WS/Process

Day 6

• Students will begin to create their sketch using the desmos software
• Pull the technology manager aside to teach them how to restrict the domain/range in desmos.
• Checkpoint: end of day, students must have desmos design complete, approved by Ms.A
• Includes Select, Implement, Evaluate Solution, Communicate, and Refine Solution of EDP WS/Process
###### Formative Assessments
• Students sketches on each day 4-6, must be approved by teacher at the end of each day
• EDP WS’s will also be used for assessment.
###### Differentiation:

Students can view tutorials for graphing equations in slope-intercept form that are posted on google classroom

###### Reflection:

The students that had more exact sketches had an easier time using desmos. So, providing them with an example may help them know the level of detail I want them to get to.
