Introduction

Lesson 1 provided a review of the whole number system and discussed the

processes for solving machine shop work problems through addition,

subtraction, multiplication, and division of fractions and decimals.

It

also discussed the conversion of decimals to fractions and fractions to

decimals.

To provide a complete coverage of machine shop calculations,

Lesson 2 will discuss the processes for converting linear measurements

between the English and metric systems, and for solving machine shop

problems involving the use of ratio, proportion, and trigonometry.

This

task will focus on the conversion of linear measurements from the English to

the metric system and from the metric to the English system.
