Watch Video >>
Advanced Manufacturing and Prototyping Integrated to Unlock Potential (AMP-IT-UP) is a NSF Math and Science Partnership to promote workforce development and to identify and cultivate the next generation of creative science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) innovators. AMP-IT-UP is a five-year partnership that Georgia Tech CEISMC implements in collaboration with its core partners, the Georgia Tech George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering and the Griffin-Spalding County School System. AMP-IT-UP Manufacturing Mathematics highlights the middle school mathematics modules related to manufacturing that are one component of the partnership. The mathematics modules promote inquiry and connect to AMP-IT-UP manufacturing themes. The middle school classroom highlighted in the video shows that assembly line process control is used to teach statistical measures of center and spread in 6th grade. A teacher shares her reflections on how the the one week modules, that have a problem based inquiry pedagogy within a manufacturing context, have impacted her students. A brief description of the other five mathematics modules related to manufacturing are shared at the end.
