Default Applied Mathematics for Shooters Course

I'm putting together a course pertaining to the mathematics of long range and precision shooting and just doing a little market research. I'm wondering if people would be interested in such a course and if anyone thinks it would actually be worth putting into a block of instruction. Opinions?

Yes definitely! I hate math and would still take the course.

Think it's worth 50 bucks a head to start out?

You talking an online class or a local in person class?

I want either less corruption or more opportunity to participate in it.

What's your syllabus looking like? Will it be math for dummies, because that would be great. Price? Have to know more.

It would be an in person class. It would cover the mathematics of things like high angle shooting, spin drift, mil vs moa, wind formulas, time of flight, etc.

If I were in your position I'd find out what the local ranges are charging hour for hour for their classes. Then I'd knock a little money off that at first, maybe $10 to be competitive and raise the price to be equal to theirs after I had a few classes under my belt.

Then to drum up interest I'd make up some fliers that describe the class and advertise that FIRST TIME ONLY the first X number of people to call and register get in for free (small sample size of the crowd you're going for) and print up fliers for all the ranges to post on the boards.

I'd also print up some coupons with a slight discount to give to the people I talked to face to face.

This is an important one to under stand for 1,000 meter targets.

I would be. Are you talking mathematics dealing with concepts such as laminar flow and boundary layers, Magnus effect, etc. or more about the calculation of MOA, ballistic tables, etc.? I'm interested in either case.
