Formulas at Work: Tradesworkers on the Job

Formulas at Work can be used to practice numeracy skills using actual construction situations. This publication takes a unique approach by using a combination of photographs and diagrams to set up and solve math problems involving area, volume and right-angle triangles. Posters, included with the resource, give steps to setting up and solving problems and provide construction-related examples.

A good resource for pre-apprenticeship and in a construction apprenticeship.

Instructors can order a class set for students.

Possible learning objectives:

  • Increase understanding of the numeracy skills used in the construction trades.
  • Review and practice calculating area, volume and right-angle triangles as used in the trades.
  • Familiarization with construction terminology.
  • Practice translating workplace problems into mathematical operations.
  • Demonstrate how numeracy is connected to workplace tasks.
