Science for the Trades, An Illustrated Guide to Basic Applications in the Construction Industry, is designed to enhance learning and make it relevant to those who are drawn to the hands-on experiences of construction trades. Photographs and examples from industry illustrate basic principles and concepts of physics and chemistry. Direct links are made between theory and practice. The process of transferring knowledge to skill is demonstrated at an elemental level, a process that is critical to the increasing demands of theoretical and practical learning in the construction trades.
Instructors can order a class set for students.
