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 conveyor have to do with math?In this video, we see that a conveyor system does not always move product horizontally or vertically. It can also move product in more than one direction at a time, including an elevation change. Building this type of conveyor incline requires more knowledge of mathematics. Let’s see how 3D geometry helps us accomplish this.
What does a ship have to do with math?If a ship building company builds a boat that doesn’t float, that business will not be around very long! The use of the discoveries made by the Greek scientist and mathematician, Archimedes is critical to determining a ships ability to float. In this video you will explore a real world application of Archimedes’ discoveries and the mathematics needed to apply them to navel architecture.
