You should know the following: If not, review! We assume you are familiar with...

- with the metric system and the MKS (meter-kilogram-second) system of units.

- doing unit conversions (e.g., miles per hour to m/s)

- basic geometry associated with right-angled triangles, such as:
sin(θ) = opposite hypotenuse - basic algebra, and can solve the general quadratic
equation ax
^{2}+ bx + c = 0 whose two solutions are: - calculus, including do basic integration and differentiation
Some important concepts from calculus:

- the integral is the area under the curve
- the derivative is the slope
- maximize or minimize a function by setting its derivative to zero
