Principles of Technology II

SCED Code: 03153
Virginia Extended Description: II
Suggested Grade Level: 11, 12
Duration: 36 Weeks
OSHA Compliance Required?: No
CTSO: TSA

Students apply physics and mathematics concepts to conduct experiments and tackle projects in this course. Focusing on seven technical principles: momentum, waves, energy converters, transducers, radiation, optical systems, and time constants, this course emphasizes how each plays a unifying role in the operation of mechanical, fluid, electrical, and thermal systems. This hands-on project approach to studying these technical principles provides a foundation for further education and career flexibility working with technology and technical systems. Contextual instruction and student participation in co-curricular career and technical student organization (CTSO) activities will develop leadership, interpersonal, and career skills. High-quality work-based learning (HQWBL) will provide experiential learning opportunities related to students' career goals and/or interests, integrated with instruction, and performed in partnership with local businesses and organizations.

Notes

Students who complete Principles of Technology I and Principles of Technology II may use these courses to satisfy one physics credit in laboratory science. A student must complete both courses in the sequence in order to receive laboratory science credit. The sequence of Principles of Technology I and Principles of Technology II will satisfy one unit of credit in laboratory science for physics and one elective credit. Students who enroll in Principles of Technology courses for a physics credit must have completed Algebra I and two other laboratory science courses as specified by the accrediting standards prior to enrolling in Principles of Technology.
