Saddle Making at Spokane Falls Community College

Saddle Making at Spokane Falls Community College

The American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges (AMATYC) has compiled a collection of mathematics resources related to various subjects and disciplines. �Math Across the Community College Curriculum� is the title of the collection, which includes great math resources and applications for educators and students alike. Verlane DeGrange from Spokane Falls Community College created this particular resource, which relates to the mathematical aspects of saddle making. The activity provided here focus on the �measuring and selling price for cutting straps.� It outlines the steps to take in calculating a selling price, and gives students the opportunity to practice those steps and make their own calculations. The emphasis on organization and calculations makes this an excellent activity to incorporate into a mathematics classroom.
