## Description

This collection of resources includes excerpts from the book, "Math to Build On," by Johnny and Margaret Hamilton. "Math to Build On" covers much of the basic math used in the construction trades and gives practice in its application. A few sections of the book are offered here so that teachers can see some of the possibilities for alternative introductions to these fundamental concepts, and students can finally answer for themselves the question, "When will I ever use this?" This resource is part of the Math Forum Collection. Less
