This course is designed to help students successfully transfer knowledge of math to the manufacturing floor. The focus will be on solving lab problems that require the use of math, including measurements and calculations. Students will work in both metric and U.S. standard measurement systems independently before learning conversions, building comfort with the language and instruments for measurement. Students will work in teams to find solutions to common plant problems and will work individually to advance math skills. Students will develop a course notebook that contains notes, formulas, and examples that will become a reference book as they proceed through lab courses in their training and to assist them on the job.
Prerequisite: Acceptance into the Advanced Composites Manufacturing Certificate program.
