Medical Mathematics
Revised – 2016 by: Marilyn Donahue
Course Description
This course will provide a review of basic mathematical calculations and will instruct the learner on how to convert equivalents from one system to
another and accurately mix and measure drugs. Emphasis will be placed on how these techniques are used in the administration of medications for
patient use.
Credits/Modes of Instruction
This is 3 credit course (~50 hours) that relies on hands-on activities, assignments, and discussion. Should the instructor feel that a class meeting(s) is
necessary, she/he will notify all student(s) via email or telephone of the class meeting time and location. The course instructor will organize the class
in coordination with Rutgers School of Health Professions syllabus, and communicate requirements with student, either by email or telephone.
Pre/Co requisites
All math remediation and successful high school completion of Dynamics of Health Care in Society
Instructor
The instructor will be a Rutgers SHP faculty (or adjunct) member.
Course Goals
The goals of this course is to provide a review of basic mathematical calculations, to instruct the learner on how to convert equivalents from one
system to another and accurately mix and measure drugs, to provide the learner with the necessary mathematical background needed for
pharmacology, and to provide the learner with the theory and skills necessary to administer medication safely. For the purpose of sharpening the
learners’ math calculation skills and to develop a logical sequence of operations in solving complex dosage calculations, No calculators are used
during this course

Course Objectives
The objectives of this course will be met via on site participation/hands on learning, required readings, assignments, and discussions with preceptor.
1. Demonstrate accurately the addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of fractions and mixed numbers.
2. Read and write decimals with 100 percent accuracy.
3. Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals with 100 percent accuracy.
4. Convert common fractions to decimals and decimals to fractions.
5. Convert percent to decimals, fractions to percent, percent to fraction, and decimals to percent.
6. Convert temperature from the Fahrenheit scale to centigrade scale and vice versa.
7. Convert from one unit of measure to another using the metric system, and household measures.
8. Locate and identify dosage information on medication labels and inserts.
9. Identify information listed on physician’s order sheet and medication administration record (MAR)
10. Demonstrate knowledge of the 6 Rights of Medication Administration and steps to avoid medical errors.
11. Demonstrate knowledge and skill of safe handling, use, and disposal of hypodermic needles and syringes.
12. Use ratio-proportion calculation method to prepare ordered dosages from prepared medications.
13. Use dimensional analysis and/or the formula method to calculate ordered dosages from prepared medications
14. Calculate medication dosages based on body weight.
15. Calculate medication dosages based on body surface areas.
16. Demonstrate knowledge and ability to accurately calculate flow rates for Intravenous solutions and medications.
17. Demonstrate knowledge and ability to accurately calculate titration ranges for Intravenous medications.
18. Assess calculated answers to determine if the answer obtained is logical; does the answer make sense based on normal, average dosages.
19. Calculate pediatric dosages based on body weight.

Requirements for Completion
Attendance is required, as well as completion of all activities and assignments. Students will be required to arrange with preceptor a make-up date in
case of an absence. Assignments are expected to be submitted on their due date to the course preceptor. Late assignments will be marked down 1
point per day late.

Evaluation and Grading
Grade Determination
The minimum level of satisfactory performance in this course is a ‘C’ or better. To receive a ‘C’ or better, students must first complete ALL course
requirements specified above, including meeting the minimum attendance expectation. Based on the evaluations methods and criteria previously
described, each requirement is then scored on a 0-100 point scale. The final letter grade is based on the weighted average of all requirements.
Upon successful completion of the course students will be eligible to take the Health Science Careers standardized exam to determine college
credit.
All students must attain a C (73) or better to earn college credits. Minimum passing standardized exam grade for all students must be at least 70
before calculations of college transcript grade can be determined.
The Rutgers grade listed on the student’s transcript will be comprised of 50% of the Rutgers-SHP standardized exam grade and 50% of the high
school course grade.

Honor Code and Academic Integrity
(Refer to your SHP Student Handbook at http://shp.rutgers.edu/current_students/handbook.pdf)
The faculty of Rutgers School of Health Professions believes that students must observe and support high standards of honesty and integrity. For this
reason, all students in this course are expected to abide by the School's Honor Code and uphold its Code of Academic Integrity. As described in detail
in your Student Handbook, violations of the Code of Academic Integrity include cheating, plagiarism, fabrication and/or academic misconduct. All
such violations will be considered with gravest concern and may be punishable with sanctions as severe as suspension or dismissal. If you have not
previously affirmed the School's Honor Code (either in writing or electronically), you must submit a signed and dated copy of the Honor Code to the
instructor by the end of the first week of the semester. The Honor Code form is provided in the current SHP Student Handbook.
