Develop a strong foundation of the numerical skills underpinning many aspects of biomedical science degrees including precision, rounding, powers of 10 and scientific notation. Practise and reinforce these skills in biomedically relevant contexts and scenarios.

Learning Outcomes

  • Identify the precision of any number in terms of decimal places and significant figures
  • Round values to a specified precision.
  • Use powers of 10 to express large and small quantities
  • Convert values between decimal notation, scientific notation and biomedical reference ranges

Skills

Concepts Principles and Theories

  • Working familiarity with terms such as decimal places, significant figures, precision, powers of 10, normalised scientific notation, reference ranges and more
  • Applying this familiarity to answer a range of questions in biomedical contexts

Manipulating and Presenting Data

  • Importance of portraying scientific values in different ways e.g to various precisions and in different notations
  • Converting values between different representational formats

Interpreting and Analysing Data

  • Making use of numerical data and text information from a biomedical experimental scenario
  • Using the skills learned throughout the sheet to interpret and analyse this data
