“Basic and Advanced Mathematics for Land Surveyors and Engineers”
Course Objectives: By the end of this session participants will be able to:
- Why mathematics is important.
- Which portion of mathematics knowledge is critical.?
- How inadequate knowledge of mathematics can create problems in performing land surveying jobs.
- Answer basic and advanced mathematic problems.
- Recognize solution formats for problems and then make correct effective use of appropriate methods to solve them.
- How to visualize immediate preliminary solution to complex mathematical problems
- Why mathematics is important for professionals.
- Which portion of mathematics knowledge is critical to land surveyors/engineers.
- Basic surveying mathematics that applies.
- Advanced surveying mathematics that applies.
This course will consist of basic and advanced mathematics for land surveyors. The purpose of this course is to present basic math concepts and principles useful to survey computations. It is important for land surveyors to have a solid understanding of arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and trigonometry basics. This unit is not designed as a complete math course, but rather as an overview and guide to computation processes unique to surveying and mapping such as general surveying, boundary surveying, cartography, map projections, GIS, remote sensing, photogrammetry, geodesy, surveying applications, and measurement theory. The advance survey mathematics will help seminar attendees to recognize solution formats and then make correct and effective use of the appropriate methods to solve complex survey problems. Overview of advanced mathematics for land surveyors emphasizes mathematical concepts and principles rather than computation. This will include overview of college algebra, pre-calculus, trigonometry, analytic geometry, differential and integral calculus, linear algebra, numerical analysis, probability and statistics, advanced calculus, error theory, and analysis. Surveyors will find math operations, fundamental and advanced mathematical skills addressed in this course very useful in both educational and professional careers.
Requirements to attend a live webinar:
- You will need a smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer to view it. If using a smartphone or tablet, it is best to have the app for the program on your device (i.e. Zoom, GoToWebinar).
- To verify your continued attendance during the class, you will need a microphone, webcam or the ability to type into the program’s live chat.
- Instructors or school personnel will take attendance periodically throughout the class.
- Instructors may call on participants.
- To verify attendance, a code word may be given sometime during the class.
- You will be required to complete and return an evaluation after the course has ended. The evaluation may ask what code word was given.
- You may not receive your Certificate of Completion if we cannot verify your attendance.
Live webinar invitations are emailed to registered students as the course date nears (approximately one day prior to the class).
Certificates of Completion are emailed to students approximately 5 business days after the course.
