9780071829076: Basic Math for Nursing and Allied Health

Don't let your fear of math hold you back from a rewarding career in nursing or allied health!

Basic Math for Nursing and Allied Health uses an easy-to-understand building-block approach designed to teach you how to correlate basic math concepts with everyday activities and eventually master the more complex calculations and formulas used by nursing and allied health professionals. This unique text walks you through essential math topics from Arabic and Roman numerals, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, percentage, ratios and proportions, to conversion factors between household and metric measurements. As you complete each chapter, your proficiency and confidence will increase, enabling you to build the foundation necessary for a career in nursing and allied health.

Case studies used throughout the book not only demonstrate the mathematical concepts related to everyday activities and events such as following recipes, sale items/discounts, calculating costs, and adding correct totals, but also show you how to effectively use case studies to master the art of interpreting story problems. You will learn how to extract the correct information needed to properly set up and solve the mathematical equations associated with each case.

Powerful learning aids help you understand and retain key concepts:

  • "Recipes for Success" case study scenarios show how mathematical concepts and formulas can be applied to real-life situations
  • "Manual Math" tips and reminder boxes reinforce your confidence and knowledge
  • Key Terms provides definitions of must-know words and phrases
  • Chapter Openers and Chapter Summaries pinpoint must-know take-aways of each chapter
  • Practice equations after each concept sharpen your math skills
  • End-of-Chapter practice tests help you decide whether you should progress to the next chapter
  • Comprehensive review and final exam pinpoint your strengths and areas for improvement
