Metalcasting Firm Donates Materials for New LHS Class | News
LAKEWOOD, OH - Alumalloy Metalcasting Co. of Avon Lake recently donated textbooks and curricular materials worth $2,660 to Lakewood High School's new Mathematical Modeling & Applications course that is launching this year.
Alumalloy makes aluminum castings and uses geometric models to describe nearly everything it produces, uses a variety of math models to design and carry out manufacturing, and uses standard statistical models for process control to insure the quality of all their parts.
It is the application of mathematical skills in ways like these that will be taught in the high school's new course, which will be taught by Peter Petto, to help Lakewood's students become career and college ready, and ready to engage and excel at opportunities that will be available to them upon graduation at firms such as Alumalloy.
Petto, who worked in the manufacturing industry before becoming a teacher, approached Alumalloy for the donation and the company came through. The Board of Education acknowledged and thanked Alumalloy for its generosity at its Aug. 6 meeting.
