The Get Real Math videos showcase over 40 math skills used in the real world. The videos serve as a capstone after a skill is learned in school to be applied in a real world situation at a manufacturing company. Math skills featured are 3rd grade through high school. The lesson plans were created by math teachers.
What does a cylindrical tank have to do with math?In this video, specifications for a set of tanks that are ordered are given regarding the volume in gallons and the diameter of the tank. The height of the tank needs to be determined using some conversions and the formula for volume of a cylinder. The process of how the tank is produced is discussed and shown.
What does rigging have to do with math?Understanding the weight of different things is very important for many reasons - safety being one of the main reasons.
