Construction Mathematics, Surinder Virdi and Roy Baker

Construction Mathematics PDF Download Ebook. Surinder Virdi and Roy Baker focus on exclusively on mathematics as it is applied to actual construction practice. As such, topics specific to the construction industry are presented, as well as essential areas for Level 2 craft NVQs, which are not typically found in traditional, lower level math texts - for example, costing calculations, labor costs, cost of materials, preparation of scale drawings, and setting out of building components.

Taking a starting point below that of GCSE level, by assuming no prior mathematical knowledge, authors take the reader step by step through the mathematical requirements for Level 2 and 3 Building and Construction courses.

End of chapter exercises cover a range of theoretical as well as practical problems commonly found in construction practice, and two project-based assignments give students the opportunity to apply the knowledge they have gained. Answers to all exercises are included at the end of book. A chapter detailing the use of a scientific calculator for performing construction calculations will prove invaluable for students with no prior experience of their use.

This text addresses all the mathematical requirements of Level 2 construction NVQs from City & Guilds/CITB and Edexcel courses, including the BTEC First Diploma in Construction. Additional coverage of the core unit Analytical Methods from BTEC National Construction, Civil Engineering, and Building Services courses makes this an essential revision aid to students who do not have Level 2 mathematics experience before commencing their BTEC National studies, or any reader who wishes to refresh their mathematics knowledge.
