Description
Basic Mathematical Skills, Measuring Techniques, Squaring Techniques, Leveling Terhniques, Calculate and Lay Out Angles, Stairs, and Rafters, One & Two Point Sketching, Plus many, many, many more unique features. Also available in hard copy, 256 pages, 8 1/2" x 10 1/4" with perforated pages and 3 hole drilled. This book can be used individually or as a set with Chenier's Practical Math Dictionary. This book is designed to parallel and enhance any practical math class from general education through college level programs. Many of the math concepts are left out of traditional math books and are relevant to many different trades, occupations, do-it-yourselfers, home owners, home schoolers, etc. It includes testing material, economical hands-on projects that simulate industry (use with sticks of wood, chalk lines, flipchart paper, etc.), the answers, and many different unique modules for projects, classroom situations, self-study, industry, etc. All have been proven in the classroom and on-the-job. There are drilling tricks, drill and tap charts (English and Metric), drill numbers, American Standard pipe chart, shimming tricks, draw circles with a layout square, plus much, much more.
About the author
As the author, I would like to give a brief overview of how the books evolved. In 1971, I completed my apprenticeship (classroom and on-the-job training) in carpentry, cabinetmaking and millwrighting. As a contractor, I soon realized that my crew was lacking in math skills, and taught my own crew a basic math class (a 4 hour class, one day per week, for 3 months). In 1972, I accepteda position as a Building Trades Instructor in a high school setting. I then saw the need for basic applied math in the high school, and began to develop math materials relevant to the trades. I received a B.S. degree in Trade and Technical Education from Ferris State College in 1977. At that time, I further developed math materials and put them into module form. I also took a position as a Curriculum Coordinator and taught basic applied math to 17 different vocational programs in a two county area, later expanding to vocational programs in many differect schools throughout Michigan's Upper Peninsula and some in Lower Michigan. The first book, "Chenier's Math Method" (a soft-covered workbook) was finished in 1985. I then started to work at Mead Paper Co. While working there, I taught a practical math class to the maintenance personnel, took college classes in mathematics, AutoCAD, an in electronics. During this period I combined my High School Building Trades teaching experience with my hands-on and industry teaching experience. The end result was a field tested and proven system that is now available in two soft covered books and the electronic e-PDF and e-PUB versions.
