The Material Processing Cycle — Lesson 1

When talking about material processing, we are trying to get from raw materials to a final, usable product. But there are many steps involved and many different types of processes that can be used. So how can we logically think about this complex series of steps? This lesson will go through a simple description of the material processing cycle and explain the three general categories of material processing. Use the guided student note sheet here to follow along with the video.
