Modern Mathematics as Applied to Machine Trades: Volumes 1 and 2.
Hale, Guy J.; And Others
Through a research grant funded by the Vocational Division of the Indiana State Department of Public Instruction, a developmental research project was undertaken to develop machine trades-related mathematics materials using the terminology, concepts, and methods of modern mathematics. The two volume set is designed to be utilized by first and second year machine tool technology students. Included in the document are technical information lead-in sheets, machine trades technical information sheets, technical assignment sheets, sample technical operation sheets, and sample technical job sheets. The technical information lead-in sheets present, in simple and direct manner, important terminology, concepts, and methods utilized in modern mathematics. The units may be used for both practice and reference; practice problems with answers are divided with each lead-in sheet. Each of the machine trades technical information sheets presents specific machine tool technology, technical information utilizing the modern mathematics approach, and terminology. As much as possible these units emphasize understanding of the concepts and formulas involved. Technical assignment sheets including assigned problems and answers have been included to provide the student with practice. Appended is a partial listing of books that might be utilized for additional study in the machine trades and in modern mathematics. (Author/BP)
