How civil engineers use math By:

Jacob Clarke Types of math civil engineers use trigonometry

algebra

calculus

geometry trigonometry The branch of mathematics dealing with the relations of the sides and angles of triangles and with the relevant functions of any angles. Civil engineers use trigonometry to calculate angles and elevations when building Algebra The part of mathematics in which letters and other symbols are used to represent numbers and quantities in formulae and equations. Civil engineers use algebra on a daily basis to solve equations and find statistics Calculus The branch of mathematics that deals with the finding and properties of derivatives and integrals of functions. Civil engineers us calculus to find the amount of force a beam can handle. They also use it to figure out where they should build a support on a bridge or inside a building. Geometry The branch of mathematics concerned with the properties and relations of points, lines, surfaces, solids, and higher dimensional analogs Civil engineers use geometry to find the strongest angles to build supports to make the structure as strong as possible.
