Register now for Nevada LTAP’s free online training for Practical Math: Using Common Math Skills to Solve Everyday Problems on the Job. This two-part workshop is being held on January 11 and 12 (8:30–10:30 am PT both days), and builds on basic math skills to solve common on the job problems.
This workshop is for anyone who needs to solve common on the job problems—using the math you already know! Whether you love it, hate it, or are ambivalent about math—the simple things you already can do will help you to produce units of measure like the volume of a cylinder, the square footage of an area; flatten a slope, or ascertain whether you have enough supplies or equipment on hand to finish a job, and more.
This course builds on basic math skills that you learned in earlier web-based training or proved mastery of by passing the opt-out exam. Then by using a step by step approach, complex problems you encounter at work will be broken down into manageable problems. You will identify what you need to know, what you already know, and how to proceed. You will be encouraged to ask questions, work through some problems, and build your confidence in what you can do.
At the end of this workshop, you will be able to:
- Perform calculations by using the proper order of math processes.
- Identify the best solution path for job-related word problems.
- Convert a problem into a mathematical equation.
- Calculate formulas to solve typical job-related math problems.
