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 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 waves have to do with math?Waves in a body of water are not constant. They often have different lengths, heights and directions. In order to design ships to survive these varied wave conditions, naval architects analyze wave data from bodies of water where the ship will be sailing. In this video, you will be given Lake Michigan wave data to analyze and make inferences about. We are confident you will be able to sail through the mathematics in this video without getting sea sick!
What does injection molding have to do with math?Companies are always trying to find ways to save money while still maintaining the quality of their products. Looking at data regarding production downtime and how to minimize it can provide a cost savings. Gathering downtime data, interpreting that data and problem solving are necessary when making these decisions. In this video we will investigate data from a new injection molding process that uses different colors for chair backs and seats at KI.
