Math Skills Training (formerly Math Fundamentals)


Description

This four-hour workshop will cover the fundamentals of arithmetic and help to show and strengthen computational skills with fractions, decimals, areas, volumes, and percents. Discussion is all based on actual examples of public works field-related topics and trainees will have hands-on instruction in this course. The instructor will work with individuals to show the correct use of simple calculations and encourage/improve development of new skills. This is a core course for the Iowa LTAP Roads Scholar Program.
