What about when your asked to give 2mg per kg. That would also be a great video.

I have not come across one yet...a fluid flow rate medical math video would be a great refresher!

Amanda and Leslie, thank you for your suggestions. Math videos are on my list to get a few more filmed now that it's more wintery outside (rainy weather makes me think of math for some reason). Look for them in the next couple months!

Hi thanks for the helpful video i have difficulty with map i was wandering if you could do a video on scientific notation and other basic principles of math and how they relate to veterinary nursing

Love, love, love these math based videos. It would be helpful if you have the equations that go along with the videos. Some learn better seeing the equations and then fitting it to their situations. Keep up the good work and THANK YOU so much for doing these.

Very good but this is not "cross multiplication" - a cross multiplication has an equal sign between the two fractions - this looks more like dimensional analysis

There use to be a worksheet that went with the medical math. Do you know where I can find this worksheet? Thanks

Hi Tasha, We are working on getting those documents on the website again, it's a different process to get them uploaded to the site since the switch. In the meantime, I'll send you an email with this worksheet.
