This course is an algebra- and trigonometry-based course in aerodynamics as it relates to practical flight applications and specifically addresses aviation topics including linear and curved motion studies; kinematics; force; statics; dynamics; work and energy; impulse and momentum; rotary motion; and fluids. Vector analysis plays an important role in developing conceptual models to explain cause and effect. The student conducts investigations, collects data, and interprets the results using graphical analysis. The application of mathematical models to observed events enhances the development and reinforcement of conceptual understanding.
