    What does folding paper have to do with math?
    In this video, you will see an example of a linkage that has too much tolerance and is wearing out. You will need to use decimals to calculate minimum and maximum tolerances to find a tolerance that allows the part to work, yet not wear out as quickly.

  • What do robots have to do with math? (KI) Thumbnail
    What do robots have to do with math? (KI)
    In this video, you will look at needing to change dimensions to determine the proper robotic arm to order for a new welding enclosure. A blueprint is provided that you will measure several dimensions which then needs to be turned into a real-world dimension using the blueprint scale. The dimensions then need to be converted from inches to millimeters to determine the type of robotic arm to order.

    What do holes in paper have to do with math? (1)
    In this video, you will need to determine how many dies can be created per hour at different rates of speed. Once you know how many more dies, you will need to calculate how those numbers will affect the cost of production.

  • What does temperature have to do with math? Thumbnail
    What does temperature have to do with math?
    In this lesson, you will see a material's strength being tested using the Charpy Impact Test. In this particular situation, the material is to be tested under very cold temperatures. To do so, the temperature at which the material needs to be tested needs to be converted from Fahrenheit to Celsius.
