    Recommend you watch, learn, and complete the exercises for Early Math, Arithmetic, Geometry, and Trigonometry available online from the Khan Academy. Complete the above Math Subjects in the order listed. If you already know a given subtopic, after checking out the content, press forward.

    Starting with Geometry is not the best course of action, IMPO, until you are comfortable with addition/ subtraction/ multiplication/ &division for both decimals and fractions. Learning to effectively operate a tape measure and other layout tools, first requires a solid working knowledge of decimals and fractions.

    As a former volunteer tutor in Math/Algebra, can tell you first hand that Khan Academy + your level of effort/dedication into the "journey" will yield positive results for you. You must invest the time and step through the saturation ~ incubation ~ illumination phases to truely master most challenges in life.

    Good luck.

    Kahn academy is a good way to improve basic skills.
    It will not give you practice in creative, career oriented, problem solving - but is a great skill builder.

    These are good books to have. Also one of these calculators.

    I keep that calculator on my phone. $20 for the app vs $100 something for the calculator. I use it nearly everyday too. I also use Sketchup to draw and they have a free version.

    Doing the math in your head will keep your brain alive. All this modern sh*t is handy sometimes, but when the battery is dead it's useless.
    My brain always works. If it stops working then nothing matters anymore.

    Basic math skill such as addition, subtraction, multiplication tables and division are essential. Knowledge of algebra & geometry are essential as well. If you can't do it on your head you need to be able to do it in writing

    I learned geometry in 5 grade, learn to read blueprints so you can do layout work, it can make the difference between you being the guy that's down in the hole breathing shiit all day or the guy up on the deck working in fresh air.

    Any recommendations on the type of math I should gear up on? Trig, Geometry?
    You never know if you
    But having training will give a egde over
    Others
    I found in welding old school drafting is great plus in the shop.

    Good luck
