1. Chapter 4 – Provide a Metric-English conversion table. The students are to learn conversions
within the metric system, not between the two different systems.
2. Chapter 5 – Again, provide conversions between two different systems. Require students to
know conversions within the apothecary and household systems.
3. Chapter 8 - Each student will only study one of sections 8.3, 8.4, 8.5, and 3.1, depending on
their area of study.
8.4     Respiratory Therapy
8.5     Nursing
3.1     Physical Therapy
All others – Choose one section
One Test #4 students must answer questions from 8.3, 8.4, 8.5, or 3.1 depending on their major, if
they declared a major. The instructor should check to see what their major is. If you need help
with this contact the office. If not majoring in one of those four then they may answer the question
of their choice.

4. Chapter 12, Section 1 – Do not cover radicals and fractional exponents.
Math 106 Formulas

To the Instructor:

Copies of the conversion tables permitted to solve the problems in Chapters 4 and 5 are available in the
Math Department Office. These copies are for your students to use when taking exams and quizzes in
class. The students may NOT take these tables home. They are to be returned to the Math Department
Office after you have completed the test on Chapters 4 and 5 so they may be used again.

Chapter 1

desired amount
number of tablets =
available amount

weight of child (pounds)
Clark’s Rule: child's dosage =                              x adult dosage
150

total medication = number of tablets x medication per tablet

Chapter 2

the change
rate of change =
original amount

Chapters 4 and 5

Memorize all conversions within the systems (metric to metric, apothecary to apothecary, household to
household). Conversions between systems (metric, apothecary, metric - household, household -
apothecary) are available in tables as noted above.

Chapter 8 (Each student will select only one section from 8.3, 8.4, 8.5, or 3.1, depending on
major)
