       When I wrote the direction for the object I was sure that it did not have any flaw. I was

confident that other people will be able to follow it without any problem. I thought my

instructions were almost perfect but Denish who tested my procedure found few flaws in my

direction. I was only able to make few changes in my direction based upon the feedback that I

received from one reviewer. I do not know if another person had same difficulty following my

procedure as Denish did. Based upon the feedback I receive I had to revise step seven in my

procedure. I did not explain it properly how to cover the roof and the base of the house with two

different color papers. I had to add more detail in step 7. To cover the roof and base of the house,

color paper needs to be cut into the same size of trapezoids, triangles and square which I forgot

to mention.

       When trying out other people’s procedure I did not have any difficulty. Cardboard rocket

and paper canopy were easy to create. Creating paper canopy was easy but steps were not

numbered so I had difficulty following the direction. Creating rocket was also easy. Each step

was numbered so it was easy to follow. I did not find anything confusing but there is a major

mistake in first step with dimensioning. In order to create the cylindrical part, I had to change the

dimension and after changing the dimension I was able to create the object. I had fun creating

both objects.

       One of the important things I learned from this assignment is that creating an object is

very easy task but writing a procedure can be difficult. Instructions have to be simple so that

other people can interpret it without any difficulty. Each step has to be numbered and written




                                                                                                   1
neatly. I have read many instructions in the past but never knew that writing them can be such a

challenging task.

Building Your FOP

Parts:

     Cereal box or Cardboard
     Any Color Paper


Tools:

     Scissor

     Cutter

     Scotch Tape and Glue

     Ruler

     Pencil




                                3
Directions:

        1. Using scissors, cut the cardboard or cereal box into four equally size 13 cm x 13
           cm square pieces.
        2. Using scotch tape, form a hollow square box using four pieces that were created
           in step 1.
        3. Take another piece of cardboard and using ruler and pencil, draw two trapezoids
           on the cardboard or cereal box with following dimension. Base length is 15.5 cm
           Height is 12.7 cm and upper length is 5 cm and cut them with scissors.
        4. Cut two triangles of the following dimension from cardboard or cereal box. Base
           length is 13.5 cm and height is 12 cm.
        5. Take trapezoids that were created in step 3 and using scotch tape combine top
           edges of the trapezoid.
        6. Take both triangles created in step 4 and combine it with trapezoid to form the
           roof for the house.
        7. Use any color paper to cover cardboard. To cover the roof and base of the house,
           color paper needs to be cut into the same size of trapezoids, triangles and square
           that were created in step 1, 3 and 4.
        8. Draw a door with 4.5 cm x 3.5 cm and using cutter cut top and left edge.
        9. Draw two 2.5 cm square windows on any side of the base. Using a cutter, make a
           vertical cut in the middle and cut only top and bottom edge.
