RE: 502, WA4, Dike

 
The purpose of EVOC 502 WA4 was to prepare a "to scale" floor plan of the room in which I teach the "lecture" part of my course in Beginning Underwater Basket Weaving. The following six criteria were specified:
  1. Comply with all of the General Criteria for Written Assignments.
  2. Draw a floor plan to scale on an 8.5 by 11 inch sheet graph paper (or the drawing may be produced on a personal computer). Typically each square on the graph paper would represent one foot, but can be assigned any value that would result in a "to scale" drawing that will fit onto one page.
  3. Include the overall dimensions of at least one room in the drawing and accurately indicate the location of all doors, windows and other permanently mounted fixtures. Be sure to include information about electrical, telephone and Internet connections as well as information about lighting, plumbing, flooring and walls.
  4. Provide Information about equipment (desks, chairs and/or other special equipment) that will be housed in the facility. Make sure to allow for appropriate space needed for student use. Neatly print appropriate information on the actual drawing.
  5. Insure that the drawing is done in a professional manner and that everything included in the drawing is drawn to scale. If drawing on graph paper, use a ruler to make straight lines.
  6. Indicate the maximum number of students that the room can accommodate and insure that the drawing conveys accurate information that represents what the room should (or does) actually look like.

 

The following sources of information were used relative to this assignment:
  1. Dike, Victor - From my own professional experience.
  2. Grant Joint Union High Adult/Vocational Education Department

I believe that the attached floor plan meets all six of above listed criteria and respectfully request full credit: one point for meeting each of the above listed criteria.
 

Basic Computer Networking Classroom This 24' by 20' classroom is intended to accommodate just nine students. There are nine 2' by 3' student desks and nine 18" by 18" student chairs. There is one 6' by 3' instructor desk (with no chair), a sink with hot and cold water (in a 30" tall, 6' by 2' cabinet) and a 9' by 4' wall mounted chalkboard. There is only one 3' door, that opens out as shown and there are no windows. There are two 110v electrical outlets (located beneath the chalkboard). Two ceiling mounted 4’ fluorescent fixtures illuminate the room with the light switch just inside the door. There is no telephone and no provision for Internet access. The room is provided with central heating and air conditioning that can be adjusted by a thermostat located next to the light switch. Linoleum tiles cover the floor. The walls and ceiling are painted pink. The floor plan (below) is drawn to scale with each square representing one square foot.
