Geometry: Career Related Units. Teacher's Edition.
Pierro, Mike; And Others
Using six geometry units as resource units, the document explores 22 math-related careers. The authors intend the document to provide senior high school students with career orientation and exploration experiences while they learn geometry skills. The units are to be considered as a part of a geometry course, not a course by themselves. The six geometry units (right triangles and the Pythogorean theorem, polygons and their areas, parallel lines, standard constructions, volume, and circle relationships) may either be studied first or used as resource units as the student works in any of the career units: printing and the graphic arts, heavy equipment operator, fashion and apparel design, navigation, painting and paperhanging, landscape technology, carpenter, architecture and drafting, optical technician, sheet metal, engineering, machinist, cement workers, forestry, electrician, general contractor, home planning, cabinetmaking, plumbing and pipe fitting, surveyor, outdoor advertising, and space. The teacher's edition contains an answer key. (AG)
