Untitled document
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
1. Effectively use three-dimensional modeling programs to support two- and three-dimensional design development and design presentations.
2. Effectively use digital tools to apply texture, color, light and shadows to models.
3. Export models and views to other programs and import information from other sources to use in model construction.
4. Print or plot graphic representations of digital three-dimensional models in gray tones and color.
5. Use digital modeling skills in preparing 2-dimensional presentations of designs for architectural, landscape, and/or interior design environments.

Methods of Evaluation/Basis of Grade.
Writing: Assessment tools that demonstrate writing skill and/or require students to select, organize and explain ideas in writing.Writing
0 - 0%
None
This is a degree applicable course but assessment tools based on writing are not included because problem solving assessments and skill demonstrations are more appropriate for this course.
Problem solving: Assessment tools, other than exams, that demonstrate competence in computational or non-computational problem solving skills.Problem Solving
