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 tank simulation have to do with math?Companies that work with fluids such as beverages and syrups require a large number of automated processes that aid in quality, safety, efficiency, and cost. The development of a new bottling line, for instance, often involves consultation with a process engineer who will advise them. This involves understanding a complex system and the various measurements involved in the process. This video demonstrates the need to understand how a PID controller works and how to calibrate it correctly. A process engineer will discuss the situation and the thought process for what he does.
