This module contains instruction in basic mathematics as required for the aviation maintenance technician as prescribed for the EASA Part 66 B1 and B2 license as well as the FAA A&P mechanic.
From basic arithmetic through practical trigonometry, each concept is explained in step by step detail. You will learn by understanding concepts, not just rote memorization and you will learn how and why each skill is useful in the day-day tasks of the aircraft technician in aviation maintenance environment.
There are many applications for mathematics in aviation maintenance. The goal of Module 1 is to review the basic mathematic knowledge that a certified maintenance professional will need.
