Program Topics:

This class is a great refresher before attending "Advanced Math Applications" the following day. "Basic Math for Roadway Workers" will cover a review of topics such as:

  • Algebra terms
  • Symbols
  • Formulas
  • Fractions
  • Percentages
  • Ratios
  • Unit Conversion
  • Areas and Volume
  • Understanding Equations

Math is a subject that is quickly lost if not constantly used. Without regular use, it's not long before it's hard to remember common formulas like volume or how to simplify a fraction. Math is an important tool in our industry and is used in a variety of scenarios. The classes will be a stress-free way to review and learn some new applications. Don't forget your calculators!
