Answer key for Unit 7: Beyond Arithmetic of Math for Manufacturing: Student Workbook, by Ray Prendergast.
This is an entry level blueprint reading book written for the first year welding student. The book will be used in the first term of a two year welding program to familiarize the student to sketching and reading blueprints.
Catalog course description
Introduces principles of welding fabrication drawings. Visualization of parts and projects, dimensioning and sketching are presented to develop the skills necessary to function in the fabrication and repair field and other related fields that require knowledge of prints.
These videos show the types of work people do in nearly 550 careers, organized by the 16 career clusters recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
" TV programs such as "Law and Order" show how forensic experts are called upon to give testimony that often determines the outcome of court cases. Engineers are one class of expert who can help display evidence in a new light to solve cases. In this seminar you will be part of the problem-solving process, working through both previously solved and unsolved cases. Each week we will investigate cases, from the facts that make up each side to the potential evidence we can use as engineers to expose culprits. The cases range from disintegrating airplane engines to gas main explosions to Mafia murders. This seminar will be full of discussions about the cases and creative approaches to reaching the solutions. The approach is hands-on so you will have a chance to participate in the process, not simply study it. Some background reading and oral presentation are required."
The “Einstein Project” is a framework that is designed to help you find a solution to an everyday problem that makes you passionate in your thinking and designing. This project is designed to make you think outside of the box as active learners and create solutions in uncommon ways, forget about failing or succeeding and take chances.
Interpreting metal fab drawings is a course that introduces the principles of interpretation and application of industrial fabrication drawings. Basic principles and techniques of metal fabrication are introduced by planning and construction of fixtures used in fabrication from drawings. Basic tools and equipment for layout fitting of welded fabrications are utilized. Covers the use and application of the AWS welding symbols. This course will utilize blueprints and welding symbols and will apply them in classroom and in shop as practical assignments.
This booklet will lay out step by step procedures and how they can aid a crafts-person to build templates to build both simple and complicated fabricated parts. Types of materials that can be used with these templates is a combination of flat sheet and round tube our pipe.
In order to be successful in the use of this booklet you need to have a good understanding of basic blueprint reading skills, industrial math skill and also basic geometry. Couple this with welding and fabrication skills you can produce a wide variety of fabrications and weldments.
This booklet will start off with simple flat patterns and work in to more complex templates for pipe.

Pretest for Math for Manufacturing: Student Workbook, by Ray Prendergast.
The Welding Technology course provides students with an understanding of manufacturing processes and systems common to careers in welding and related industries. Topics include the interpretation and layout of welded and assembled-parts, reading blueprints and understanding welding symbols. Further topics included are the common welding processes found in industry, metal charcteristics and finishing processes dealing with welded parts and projects.
Discusses a wide variety of processes and materials from the viewpoint of their fundamental physical and chemical properties. Specific topics: cold welding, adhesive bonding, diffusion bonding, soldering, brazing, flames, arcs, high-energy density heat sources, solidification, cracking resistance, shielding methods, and electric contacts. Emphasis on underlying science of a given process rather than a detailed description of the technique or equipment. Meets with first half of subject 3.371J in Fall Term; videotaped instruction in other terms.
