- 0Aug 22, '06 by smooO.K. I remember seeing a thread on here before with all kinds of links to practice math problems. My classes start next week and we are having a math quiz and I wanted to brush up on my IV calculations. Can anyone help me find the thread or where to look. I can't find it...........

TIA
