Transport Truck Driver-Working with Height, Weight, and Distance

Facilitator’s Guide – Includes student’s work book, answer key and task-based activities

Transportation of goods and materials is an important part of the Canadian and U.S economy. Truck drivers provide an essential service, working day or night, traveling to and from retail, distribution centers, or manufacturing plants to pick up and deliver their goods safely and on time. A truck driver uses basic math skills (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) on a daily basis to calculate distance, height, weight, and to complete logs and reports. 

This Facilitator’s Guide accompanies the Numeracy at Work - Transport Truck Driver-Working with Height, Weight, and Distance Student Work Book.

  • Student’s Work Book

Numeracy at Work - Math Series

Preparing Indigenous learners for Apprenticeship and Employment

There are 5 booklets in the Numeracy at Work series. The booklets are designed for learners entering an apprenticeship program or preparing for the workforce.  Learners are encouraged to complete a booklet in a career they are interested in or they could try all the booklets to investigate what careers interest them.  Every booklet concentrates on math concepts and skills needed in a chosen career.

The OALCF are the guidelines used to establish math concepts and skills at Level 1 and Level 2, as some career paths are more advanced learning of math concepts.
