As a math,
highway construction, and OSHA safety instructor and coordinator for
the Pre-Apprenticeship Training in Highway Construction program at
the Maricopa County Community College District, Phoenix, Arizona,
author Robert Chasan combines practical experience with exceptional
teaching abilities to bring you and your students this engaging
tutelage, Professor Chasan's program, funded by the Federal Highway
Administration, has become a national leader. Mr. Chasan also
coordinates his school's SCANS Lab (Secretary of Labor's Commission
on Acquiring Necessary Skills), teaching math, blueprint reading,
and SCANS skills to the welding and machine trades students and the
school's other trades programs.
Professor Chasan has led the school Safety Team and taught OSHA-10,
OSHA-30, and SSTA-16. Professor Chasan specializes in areas of math
instruction, ranging from developmental through trigonometry,
including fractions and decimals, measuring instruments, tolerances,
percentages, and metrics.
