WELD 111


Project Mathematics


Course Description

A mathematics course covering basic skills needed to increase the quantitative literacy of skilled welders in engineering and industrial practice. Welding related problems are designed to increase understanding of basic mathematics as they relate to linear, angular, four sided, triangular and circular measurements. Topics covered in the course also include volumetric measurement of conventional shapes as well as irregular shaped objects, weight calculation and calculations used in bending metals.

Prerequisites

(A requirement that must be completed before taking this course.)

  • None.

Course Competencies

Upon successful completion of the course, the student should be able to:

  • Use whole numbers and fractions to support specimen design.
  • Use decimals to support specimen design.
  • Use whole numbers and fractions to support fabrication.
  • Use decimals to support fabrication.
  • Apply complex systems of linear measurement to welding applications.
  • Apply complex systems of triangular measurement to welding applications.
  • Apply complex systems of four sided measurement to welding applications.
  • Apply complex systems of circular measurement to welding applications.
  • Calculate volume metric measurements as they relate to regular shaped specimens having direct weld qualification applications.
  • Calculate volume metric measurements as they relate to irregular shaped specimens having direct weld qualification applications.
  • Apply improved math-related literacy to projects requiring calculating critical dimensions associated with weld components.
