This course is designed for individuals that are interested in brushing up on their math skills. It provides in-depth instruction and hand-on training for calculating volume and area - as needed to determine the amount of concrete or asphalt needed to pave a given area (such as a driveway or parking lot). This course contains the following components: pre-assessment, presentations, reading assignments, practice exercises, post-assessment and a course evaluation. CEUs: eligible for .1 CEU upon course completion.
After completing this course, participants will be better able to:
- Identify the terminology and formulas that are used when calculating area and volume.
- Calculate how many CUBIC YARDS of CONCRETE would be needed to pave a given area, such as a driveway or parking lot.
- Calculate how many TONS of ASPHALT would be needed to pave a given area, such as a driveway or parking lot.
- Explain the necessity for converting cubic feet to cubic yards (concrete) and pounds to tons (asphalt).
