MATH 104 - The Mathematics of Powered Flight

Fall and Spring (3) (College 200, NQR, MATH, GER 1)

Applications of elementary mathematics to airplane flight. Wind and its effect on airport design and aircraft operation. Maps and map projections. Magnetic variation and compass navigation. Static air pressure: buoyancy and the altimeter. Use of a flight simulator will illustrate the mathematical analysis of certain aircraft instruments. Not open to students who have credit for a Mathematics course numbered above 210. (This course is anchored in the NQR domain, and also considers aspects of the CSI domain.)
