MWSC Shop Math IV
This course is designed to develop an advanced working knowledge of charts, formulas and calculations used in the metalworking practice. The student will apply these skills through (hands on) labs and exercises, using blue prints, project sheets and examples found in The Machinery’s Handbook.
Students will have a basic understanding and proficiently to apply algebraic equations, geometry and trigonometric formulas in the shop environment. Locate formulas and charts in the machinery’s handbook applicable to the machining trades. Explore and define the use of these charts and formulas. Exemplify problem solving skills in the various workshops provided and apply these methods and techniques to the machine shop environment.
