 # Mathematics

Mathematics, in short, is the science of numbers, shapes and patterns. It is also the way we can understand most things in the universe from colours to space travel.

The following pages are related to learning mathematics for Engineering and have been based upon the current (September 2019) EASA part 66 Aircraft Engineers Licence Knowledge Requirements which is a good standard for most challenges. If you want Pure Quantum Mechanics to explain the theory of everything, then you may need University. What will we cover –

• 1.1 Arithmetic –
• Arithmetical terms and signs,
• methods of multiplication and division,
• fractions and decimals,
• factors and multiples,
• weights, measures and conversion factors,
• ratio and proportion,
• averages and percentages,
• areas and volumes,
• squares,
• cubes,
• square and cube roots.

• 1.2 Algebra
• Evaluating simple algebraic expressions,
• subtraction,
• multiplication
• division,
• use of brackets,
• simple algebraic fractions;
• Linear equations and their solutions;
• Indices and powers,
• negative and fractional indices;
• Binary and other applicable numbering systems;
• Simultaneous equations
• Second degree equations with one unknown;
• Logarithms. • 1.3 Geometry
• Simple geometrical constructions;
• Graphical representation;
• nature and uses of graphs,
• graphs of equations/functions;
• Simple trigonometry;
• trigonometrical relationships,
• use of tables
• rectangular and polar coordinates.

Like many challenges on this website, I will try to share current YouTube material embedded on the page before writing new material. This is so to prevent duplicated material and also gain views on good videos thus rewarding that creator. I will stress that the videos or their contributors are not affiliated with this website and their views are theirs only etc. This site also does not earn a revenue from views on the videos, unless created by ourselves on the vulcansrealm YouTube channel.
