Basic Math for Roadway Workers – Part 1 of 3

February 7 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Part 1 – Math Basics and Quantity Calculations (This is Part 1 of a 3-part series.) In this session we will review basic math principles and how to calculate length, area, and volume. We will use these principles to estimate asphalt and chip seal work.

With math basics followed by lessons in calculating length, area, volume, and quantities, this interactive course presents how to estimate highway maintenance work in real world situations using the math you already know! Utilizing a step-by-step approach, complex situations encountered by highway and street departments will be broken down into simple pieces.

Throughout the course, we’ll explain basic math concepts or illustrate how to estimate quantities for typical maintenance operations. 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, attendees will be able to:

  • Perform basic math calculations
  • Calculate length, area, and volumes
  • Unit conversion
  • Estimate highway maintenance work using basic math for repairs involving asphalt, chip seals, shoulder fill, stockpiles, salt storage, tank storage, salt spreader calibration, road salt and liquid brine application, ditch grade, mowing, herbicide spraying, seeding, bridge deck repair, concrete deck sealing, sidewalk, and roadway slope.

This course is a six-hour workshop and is for anyone who needs to solve common on the job problems. This includes Foremen, Superintendents, Crew Leaders, and Maintenance Workers.
