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 SINKING ship have to do with math?Ship stability is an important area of naval architecture and design. How a ship behaves at sea in a variety of conditions is critical to the safety of crew and cargo. How can we ensure that our ship will float? In this video, you will use a mathematical model for a ship’s center of gravity to determine the stability of the vessel.
How does raising a ruckus involve math?Customer safety is a high priority for manufacturers. When designing a product, many prototypes are created and research is conducted to determine if the product is safe for customers. In the case of furniture, stability is a critical area to test. This video shows how mathematics and physics help to create a stable chair, and ultimately, keep customers safe.
