This book is intended to provide the essential mathematics required by construction craft students. It covers the learning outcomes of the mathematics part of the unit construction science and mathematics for the BTEC First Diploma course in construction. The book is also intended to help construction students studying the subject of analytical methods in the BTEC National Diploma/Certificate in construction and BTEC National Certificate in Civil Engineering, although these syllabuses are not covered in their entirety.
Little previous knowledge is needed by students who use this text. The basic concept and examples are explained in such a way that those construction students whose first interest is not mathematics will find it easy to follow. There are twenty exercises and two assignments for the students to check and reinforce their learning.
