## Modeling Syllabus

This course was designed by Jonathan Rothman for a semester-long class at the High School for Community Leadership Jamaica, Queens, Spring 2014. The course focuses on combining Geometry, modeling and 3D fabricating.

You will be able to do... (YWBAT)

- Describe ways of using 2D shapes to model 3D objects.
- Apply 2D techniques to break down the geometries of 3D objects.
- Move and manipulate digital primitives.
- Describe 3D printing processes.
