Description : Mathematics for Veterinary Medical Technicians provides a one-semester course in the basics of mathematics needed for Veterinary Technicians and Assistants. This revised edition has incorporated suggestions for improvement; some material has been reordered to improve presentation.The course covers fractions, decimals and percentages without the use of calculators as is the case on many State Board Exams. In addition to basic mathematical computations, several chapters are devoted to application problems involving dosage, concentration, dilution and the computation of infusion rates. An introduction to reading graphs is presented as well as a chapter on basic statistical concepts and measures.The language is designed to be readable and in terms of everyday usage rather than formal and strict mathematical terms. The workbook style of the text allows students the freedom to move at a pace that ensures mastery of the material as well as flexibility for covering topics in any prescribed manner. In many programs, this may be the only math course students are required to take. The material will be valuable and useful in other courses such as chemistry and clinical practices labs.A teacher's manual that includes complete solutions, quizzes, tests (including a pretest and final exam) and additional worksheets is available. For the benefit of students, the answers to odd–numbered exercises are provided in the Answer Keys.
