By the end of this course, students will have demonstrated the ability to evaluate a variety of arithmetic and algebraic expressions and apply these principles to typical problems that arise in the health care fields. Concepts studied include numeracy fundamentals; systems of measurement and dimensional analysis; algebra, with an emphasis on analytical techniques; and evaluating systems of linear equations. Students will develop essential critical thinking and problem-solving skills through exposure to application problems, including dosage calculations and solution dilutions. Students will use numerical methods along with graphs to describe the relationship between quantities.
