"Since the mathematicians have invaded the theory of relativity

I do not understand it myself any more."

Albert Einstein

We do not want the study of math to confuse our most important work. If the mathematicians could confuse Einstein and his theory of relativity what hope remains for the water and wastewater operator? Great hope if we remember that math is not the master, but instead we are the master and math is the servant to help us accomplish our work.

Most water and wastewater operator work is in the realm of the tangible. We dig and move dirt. We excavate, repair, and replace water pipe and sewer line. We turn valves and drive trucks. We shovel and pour chemicals. This we understand. However, a blank white piece of paper, a pencil, and a calculator can at times be intimidating. The goal of this course is to help you get the upper hand on math so that you can make math work for you on the job.

This course will prepare you for all the common mathematical problems you will face on the job as a water utility operator and also help prepare you for the math needed to pass the operator certification examination.

Best wishes!
