This course briefly touches on basic math a student will have learned in primary education. After this course, the student will be refreshed on a level of math that most AMT/Apprentices will commonly use while working in the field. The fundamentals of mathematical operations will be reviewed. Upon review of each course section, a short exam will be administered. At the end of the entire course, a final examination of the entire course will be administered. Upon passing this exam, the student will have achieved credit for the course and will continue within the program.
Know basic math fundamentals including addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, whole and decimal numbers, mixed numbers, fractions ratios, algebraic operations, and dimensional computations of geometric shapes
There are 5 quizzes and 1 final exam (15 questions) encompassing the entirety of the course. Since this is an introduction course via prerequisite, there are no scheduled labs, shop time or practical portions of this course.
The course objective is broken down as follows:
- Objective 1 – Addition, subtraction, multiplication, division
- Objective 2 – Decimal numbers, number powers
- Objective 3 – Fractions, mixed numbers, ratios, percentages
- Objective 4 – Algebraic operations, order of operations
- Objective 5 – Dimensional computation of shapes
The equipment used for Aviation Math are a computer for online modules and a calculator for problem solving. The materials needed are paper and writing utensils and the FAA-H- 8083 30-A Aviation Maintenance Technician General Handbook. Any other equipment/materials will be provided by the instructor at their discretion.
