This course will offer students the opportunity to refresh and develop their skills in fundamental mathematics applying appropriate methods to their calculations as it pertains to the building construction industry. Students will use both the Metric and Imperial systems (including the use of tape measures) to accurately prepare estimates for material take offs for various aspects of building construction. Percentage, ratios/proportions and algebraic calculations will be included in the estimation process to determine material waste values, labour hours/cost and profit/loss of a particular project. This introduction to construction math and estimating will set the groundwork for future construction courses and assignments.
