Basic Calculations In Pharmacy

The package covers basic calculations and is intended to act as a bridge between school level and first year pharmacy degree level calculations. Those types of calculation covered in the package should already be known by the students; however experience has shown that this is not always the case.
The aims of the package are:

  • To show the students the range of calculations that they are expected to know
  • To provide help in those areas that students have commonly found problematical

Many of the activities within the package follow a similar structure:

  • First, the student is given a brief introduction to the topic
  • The student is then shown an equation that can be used for calculations
  • For three-part equations the student then looks at how to calculate each part of the equation
  • Finally, each activity finishes with a set of mixed questions

This package also contains an Assessment module with MCQs.
