Does module mean small or am i thinking of something similar
You might be thinking of the word "miniscule". I don't know :)
As I think; Module is a identical/similar of the real object..a scaled module is a smaller/bigger in the size of the real object.
Module means a discrete component, one that is interchangeable with others, for assembly into units of dissimilar size, convolution, or function. Generally, the term module can be used to mean a unit or a component.
Module means a part of a whole, you could say that in relation to my package, my left ball is a module while the several modules make up the whole D.... Hope this helps!
You're thinking of the word "minuscule." A module is like unit in a book. There are several more definitions too. Look in the dictionary.
Module can mean a section of something. For instance in college we are studying a certain module of a book right now.
nodules are usually smaller than modules
