In this course, we will review some basic math skills. Additionally we will discuss payroll calculations, including hourly, commission, overtime, payroll deduction, FICA, Medicare, and Federal tax deductions, using the percentage and bracket methods, understanding single and marital tax differences, dependent deductions, and exclusions. Invoicing discount, net 30, EOM and URG calculations, dating, both simple and compound interest will also be discussed.

This workshop was developed by Community College of Allegheny County in collaboration with the City of Pittsburgh, Department of Personnel. It will help those who desire a career in firefighting with the City of Pittsburgh become better prepared to take the national Firefighter Entrance Examination, the written examination required to be employed as a firefighter. The Firefighter Entrance Exam assesses abilities such as basic math skills, reading comprehension, reasoning and problem solving, as well as values and relevant life experiences. Workshop topics include mathematical reasoning and number facility, reading comprehension, problem solving through inductive and deductive reasoning, information gathering and ordering, test-taking strategies and time management. Students will also become familiar with the test format through mock tests and questionnaires.

This 120-hour enrichment course for high school students presents geometric concepts and applications, properties of two dimensional and three-dimensional figures in space, inductive and deductive reasoning, angle relationships and the Pythagorean Theorem.
