Math for the Trades
Carpenters must have a functional understanding of general math, fractions, decimals, measurement, measurement tools, area measure, and volume measure.
The United Brotherhood of Carpenters provides all of our Apprentices and Journeymen with FREE Math for the Trades instruction.
Apprentice Applicants are asked to complete a Math Evaluation to assist us in determining their math comprehension.
This page includes an Apprentice Applicant Math Evaluation Study Guide. It also includes a study guide for Apprentices and Journeymen taking the the Construction Trades courses.
Please check back as we will be adding links to additional resources, e.g., websites, videos, etc. that you may find helpful in reviewing general math, fractions, decimals, measurement, measurement tools, area measure, and volume measure.
We would strongly encourage you to take some online courses or review basic mathematics, such as:
- Whole Number: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division
- Fractions: defining, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing
- Decimals: adding and subtracting, multiplying and dividing, converting to fractions and converting fractions to decimals
- Percentages: calculating, adding, dividing, converting to decimal, converting decimals to percentages
