Work Measurements: Interdisciplinary Overlap in Manufacturing and Algebra I
Rose, Mary Annette
Technology Teacher, v66 n7 p6-11 Apr 2007
Manufacturing engineering provides a relevant context from which to envision interdisciplinary learning experiences because engineers integrate their knowledge and skills of manufacturing and algebra processes in order to plan the efficient manufacture of products. In this article, the author describes an interdisciplinary learning activity that was originally implemented as a Tech Prep project at Norview High School, Norfolk, Virginia. The project occurred over three days within 1 1/2-hour blocks; total activity time was 4 1/2 hours. This cooperative learning project required students enrolled in Manufacturing Technology and Algebra I to share their technical and mathematical expertise for the purpose of demonstrating how this knowledge and skill applies in real-world contexts. (Contains 1 figure and and 3 tables.)
