General Course Information and Notes

General Notes

Students experiment with the media and techniques used to create a variety of two-dimensional (2-D) artworks through the development of skills in drawing.  Media and methods studied within this course may include, but are not limited to, life and figure drawing, foreshortening, linear perspective, contour, and value studies.  Students practice and manipulate the structural elements of art to improve mark making and/or the organizational principles of design with a focus on creating strong, unified compositions from observation research, and/or imagination.  Through the critique process, students evaluate and respond to their own work and that of their peers.  During this course, students will be expected to create a portfolio of personal works.  This course incorporates hands-on activities and consumption of art materials.

Students are encouraged to complete M/J Two-Dimensional Studio Art 1 (0101010) prior to enrolling in this course.

English Language Development (ELD) Standards Special Notes Section:

Teachers are required to provide listening, speaking, reading and writing instruction that allows English language learners (ELL) to communicate for social and instructional purposes within the school setting.   For the given level of English language proficiency and with visual, graphic, or interactive support, students will interact with grade level words, expressions, sentences and discourse to process or produce language necessary for academic success. The ELD standard should specify a relevant content area concept or topic of study chosen by curriculum developers and teachers which maximizes an ELL’s need for communication and social skills. To access an ELL supporting document which delineates performance definitions and descriptors, please click on the following link: http://www.cpalms.org/uploads/docs/standards/eld/SI.pdf.

For additional information on the development and implementation of the ELD standards, please contact the Bureau of Student Achievement through Language Acquisition at sala@fldoe.org.

Original Student Tutorials

Hot on the Trail:

Investigate how temperature affects the rate of chemical reactions in this interactive tutorial.

Type: Original Student Tutorial

Scale Round Up:

Howdy y’all! I’m Deputy Design, a cowboy architect. I am going to use my architectural scale drawings for a new horse arena to teach you how to solve problems involving scale drawings. In this tutorial, you will learn to calculate actual lengths using a scale and proportions.

Type: Original Student Tutorial

Problem-Solving Tasks

Floor Plan:

The purpose of this task is for students to translate between measurements given in a scale drawing and the corresponding measurements of the object represented by the scale drawing. If used in an instructional setting, it would be good for students to have an opportunity to see other solution methods, perhaps by having students with different approaches explain their strategies to the class. Students who can only solve this by first converting the linear measurements will have a hard time solving problems where only area measures are given.

Type: Problem-Solving Task

Measuring Henry's Cabin:

This resource introduces students to the aspects a builder must think about before constructing a building. Students will study the cabin blueprint of Henry David Thoreau and then will find the surface area of the walls and how much paint would be needed. Then, students will find the volume of the cabin to determine the home heating needs. Third, students will study the blueprint and will create a 1/10 scale of it on graph paper and then will use art supplies to create a model of the cabin. Last, students will design and create models of furniture to scale for the cabin.

Type: Problem-Solving Task

Student Center Activity

Edcite: Mathematics Grade 6:

Students can practice answering mathematics questions on a variety of topics. With an account, students can save their work and send it to their teacher when complete.

Type: Student Center Activity


Construct a Right Isosceles Triangle:

This video discusses constructing a right isosceles triangle with given constraints and deciding if the triangle is unique.

Type: Tutorial

Construct a Triangle with Given Side Lengths:

This video demonstrates drawing a triangle when the side lengths are given.

Type: Tutorial

Nets of 3-Dimensional Figures:

This video demonstrates how to construct nets for 3-D shapes.

Type: Tutorial

Graphing a parallelogram on the coordinate plane:

Students will graph the given coordinates of three of the polygon vertices, then locate and graph the fourth vertex.

Type: Tutorial

Finding Surface Area: Net of a Rectangular Prism :

This video demonstrates using a net to find surface area.

Type: Tutorial

Quadrilateral on the coordinate plane:

In this example students are given the coordinates of the vertices and asked to construct the resulting polygon, specifically a quadrilateral.

Type: Tutorial

Primary Additive Colors:

This resource helps the user learn the three primary colors that are fundamental to human vision, learn the different colors in the visible spectrum, observe the resulting colors when two colors are added, and learn what white light is. A combination of text and a virtual manipulative allows the user to explore these concepts in multiple ways.

Type: Tutorial

Primary Subtractive Colors:

The user will learn the three primary subtractive colors in the visible spectrum, explore the resulting colors when two subtractive colors interact with each other and explore the formation of black color.

Type: Tutorial

Converting Speed Units:

In this lesson, students will be viewing a Khan Academy video that will show how to convert ratios using speed units.

Type: Tutorial

Virtual Manipulatives

Cross Section Flyer - Shodor:

With this online Java applet, students use slider bars to move a cross section of a cone, cylinder, prism, or pyramid. This activity allows students to explore conic sections and the 3-dimensional shapes from which they are derived. This activity includes supplemental materials, including background information about the topics covered, a description of how to use the application, and exploration questions for use with the java applet.

Type: Virtual Manipulative

Scale Factor:

Explore the effect on perimeter and area of two rectangular shapes as the scale factor changes.

Type: Virtual Manipulative
