A member pm'd me the following question highlighted below. We created this thread for you guys to talk about math, solve math problems, and post math websites that you have found helpful. I was wondering, is there a sticky or a special site that can be coordinated for "math sufferers". Perhaps, beginning calculations or shall i say the basics..simple to complex...step by step on how to calculate. I'm a visual learner, numbers and I don't work well. I am trying, but I've got a block! Edited Mar 28, 2018 by Joe V 0 Likes

It walks through problem solving using all three methods (DA, ratio/proportion and formula). Makes it easy to figure out what works best for you. 0 Likes

sneakymom2011 Jan 6, 2008 I found "Calculate with Confidence" by by Deborah Morris to be an excellent resourse. It walks through problem solving using all three methods (DA, ratio/proportion and formula). Makes it easy to figure out what works best for you.Hey- I just checked the books I had to buy for this semester, and that's one of them! Hopefully it'll be as helpful for me as you say. I don't have pharmacology until the second 8 week session. 0 Likes

sarmike1 Jan 12, 2008 I took a med math class before starting nursing school because we had a test on calculations that we had to get an 85% or we would be asked to leave school, the professor showed us the different ways to solve the calcs and then showed us that one equation would work for all problems no matter what conversions needed to be done. It is called dimensional analysis and it works for everything once you understand how to use it! I recomend this equation to every body. 0 Likes

B_santafe Jan 17, 2008 I had a little difficulty with math as well and I tried seraching n google. I wrote medication calculation, an I checked the first three sites that came up. What a nice surprise! They were very helpful. They expalined everything including conversions, IV rate..... They also have quizes where you can practice and recheck your answer. I hope this help you!! There is no nee to expend money in a book when you can fin info online! 0 Likes
