Mathematics is the basic language of science and technology. It is an exact language that has a vocabulary and meaning for every term. Since mathematics follows definite rules and behaves in the same way every time, aircraft mechanics and engineers use it as a basic tool. Upon completion of this module, students will be able to understand and apply various mathematical formulas including basic addition and subtraction, fractions and decimals, weights, proportions, areas and volumes, cubes and square roots used in aircraft maintenance. More intense math knowledge is also gained in algebra and geometry with binary numbering systems, logarithms, graphical representations, rectangular and polar coordinates and simple trigonometry.
