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 are 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.
What does blowing snow have to do with math?As all Wisconsinites know, snow blowers are an important tool to help us dig out from one of our many winter snow storms. It is also important that snow blowers throw the snow far enough away so we are not wasting time by moving it more than once. Less time out in the cold, means more time inside drinking hot cocoa and watching Packer football. Thanks to Ariens Company for understanding our Wisconsin winter needs!
