Some mathematical tools have been purposefully left off to avoid redundancy with high school and middle school math classes (protractor, compass, etc).

This resource is designed to be used as a first nine weeks presentation for a technical theater class, but could easily be used in an engineering or shop class. The tools in this presentation were chosen based on what students would likely use in a high school class and do not include power tools (that's another lesson) or electrical, plumbing, etc.

PPT and PDF files included in ZIP archive.
