Draft Guidelines for Teachers 2006 The advancement of lifelong learning skills The power of parametric modelling for the teaching of plane and descriptive geometry should be fully utilised through the incorporation of a data projector as an essential piece of equipment for the Design and Communication Graphics classroom.
