Everyone who works in residential construction needs solid, everyday math skills.
Math is the language of construction. It's important for accuracy, efficiency, and safety to make sure the work is done correctly. The aim of this course is to help the learner develop an understanding of how arithmetic, basic algebra, geometry, and conversions relate to home construction and renovation.
