MECHANICAL DRAWING PROBLEMS FOR HIGH SCHOOLS, NORMAL SCHOOLS AND VOCATIONAL SCHOOLS By Epwarp Bere anp Emit F. Kronquist Instructions in Mechanical Drawing Washingeon High School Milwaukee, Wis, THE MANUAL ARTS PREss Peoria, ILLINOIS PREFACE The aim of the authors is to present to the student and the teacher a collection of progressive problems embodying the fundamental principles and examples of practical mechanical drawing, arranged to cover two years of school work, The problems are grouped into first semester, second semester, and third and fourth semester work, and arranged with the view in mind of teaching the proper amount of principles and application during a given period of time. With this plan it is felt that the student who leaves school at any time during the first two years or at the end of two years, will have received the proportional amount of mechanical drawing which will serve his needs best in the practical walks of life Each problem is given in the form of a specification sheet and a lay-out sheet from which the student is to make the completed drawing. The specification sheet gives a statement of the problem and is frequently supplemented with text matter which bears upon and emphasizes the thing to be taught in the problem, or gives some relative information, The lay-out shect suggests the method of procedure, and also furnishes an object lesson in the form of carefully executed work which is always before the pupil. With this method, class instruction is reduced to a. mi mum, giving the teacher more time for individual instruction, and the pupil the opportunity of working things ost by himself. The proper use of the specification, lay-out, and reference sheets will do much, it is believed, towards creating self-reliance and personal effort and exertion on the part of the student. ‘The required problems are fully supplemented, making the course flexible, and suitable for many needs. The reference sheets are made use of thruout the book, and will be found a valu- able feature, The extra plates may be used to extend the work over a period of more than two years.
