A lot of the calculations are computerized these days (even a manual E6B is a computer). A lot of the underlying calculations use trigonometry, but you don't really have to understand it very much. But a basic working understanding of 7th grade algebra )rate X time = distance) and geometry (courses and headings are based on a circle) will help a lot in giving you context to most aviation calculations at the private pilot level.
