DOSAGE CALCULATIONS Can be SIMPLE!
There are many different ways to do dosage calculations. Some favor the formula method or even ration and proportion. While both of these methods are pretty good in quickly solving problems, dimensional analysis is one way, to do every dosage calculation problem, check yourself, and get them right each time!
What is Dimensional Analysis? Dimensional Analysis (also called Factor-Label Method or the Unit Factor Method) is a problem-solving method that uses the fact that any number or expression can be multiplied by one without changing its value. While that is the technical description, I tend to call it a matching game.
If anyone has tried to teach you to solve dosage calculations using dimensional analysis, it may feel or look awkward. It may be even downright intimidating. Through our simple and easy method, you can learn our three step process in under 1-hour! Our method has been tried and taught to science students and what we hear each time is, "It works!"
If you do not favor dimensional analysis, no worries! We can meet you where you are!
