The 28 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 cereal have to do with math?In this video, you will calculate arc lengths to determine the length of guide rail needed to go around a corner of a conveyor.
What do coupons have to do with math?In this video, you will see how companies can use sets of actual data to see how accurate their cutting machines are to the correct length. You will find the mean and the deviation of the data.
What do ramps have to do with math?In this video, you will calculate the length of a conveyor ramp that needs to go up and over existing obstacles. You will need to use the Pythagorean Theorem to determine the length of chain and trigonometry to calculate the angle of the ramp.
What do robots have to do with math? (Georgia-Pacific)In this video, you will learn about laser guided vehicles and how to program them to work in your company. You will need to calculate distances and angles.
What does the load capacity of a cart have to do with math?In this video, students are challenged to determine the length of a cross brace for a cart. They also need to determine the angle to set the cross brace at. The Pythagorean Theorem and right triangle trigonometry is needed to determine these dimensions. The importance of a strong weld is also discussed as the load the cart may need to carry could be very heavy and a solid cross brace put on securely is necessary.
What does a tank reducer have to do with math?In this video, a part needs to be welded onto an exterior part of a tank reducer. Exactly where the part is to be attached needs to be determined first, based on a blueprint. In this activity, students need to determine the correct length from the top of the tank to place the object.
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.
