Course overview:This is the eleventh and final course in the Math Basics Series for Highway Technicians, which has been designed to provide you with all of the basic math concepts youll need on the job. This course reviews slope. The ground on which we construct our projects is not always perfectly flat; therefore, we often need to figure out the steepness or grade of an area of land.
There are 11 modules that make up this serieseach of which explains an introductory math concept in a quick, interactive micro-learning experience. These modules do occasionally reference one another and build upon previously explained math concepts. If youre unsure of any concepts explained in these modules, you can always go back and take previous modules. Its recommended that you start from the beginning and take all the modules in order; however, you are also welcome to take just one (or several) modules that are applicable to your training needs. The other topics are as follows:
Order of Operations (TC3ED009-17-T1);
Unit Conversions (TC3ED014-17-T1);
Area (TC3ED016-17-T1); and
Training level:This training is recommended for the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council levels I and II.
Target audience:This course is for any individual who would like a basic technical math refresher, or an introduction to construction math in a transportation setting, including inspectors and technicians.
Learning outcomes:Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
Determine the slope within given construction project scenarios.
