Summary
Today's construction industry, consisting of a wide range of careers, continues to struggle finding skilled workers to meet demand. In order to take advantage of these jobs, a candidate will need a strong understanding of arithmetic, algebra, and geometry. This book presents readers with real-world examples of how math skills relevant to fifth and sixth grade Common Core Standards are used on the job in construction every day, engaging students both interested in construction and those seeking relevant applications of these skills outside of the classroom.
