NSF Math Curriculum for Welding

Math Activities
Many of the activities below are hands-on (with the exception of activities 1 and 5).  By clicking on the "Math Activities" link above you will access a description of each of the activities and a summary of supplies needed for each activity.  For those who have worked with us through this grant or attended our workshop, these activities utilize the math kit provided to you.  For those outside of our district or state, many activities would involve producing some items cut or fabricated by welding or technical education faculty.  Dimensions and blueprints are shared in the document below call "Math Kit Information for Reproduction".  The student worksheets that go with each activity are also below.  For instructor answer keys which include points of discussion, request more information below.

Math Videos
These videos were created in manufacturing companies in the Green Bay area in order to relate how math is used in manufacturing.  By clicking on the "Math Videos" link above you will access a description of each of the videos and links to the videos housed on You Tube.  Below are student worksheets that can be used for group discussion and calculations as the videos are being viewed.  For instructor answer keys, request more information below.
