Quantitative Skills for Biomedical Science

Units and Formulae

No items found.

Become familiar and confident with the principles of scientific units and formulae, applying these to biomedical science contexts and scenarios. Become more fluent in unit prefixes and conversions, as well as rearranging and solving equations, with plenty of practice, reinforcement and feedback.

Learning Outcomes

  • Convert between various prefixes for commonly encountered units
  • Incorporate more complex units into wider calculation contexts
  • Rearrange equations in the format of common formulae
  • Solve equations by substituting values in, accounting for units

Concepts Principles and Theories

  • Working familiarity with terms such as prefixes, expression, equations, formula, variable, constant, operation, inverse operation and more
  • Applying this familiarity to answer a range of questions in biomedical contexts

Manipulating and Presenting Data

  • Exploring how quantitative scientific problems can be represented via formulae and how they can be manipulated via various rearrangements
  • Using units to portray scientific values in different ways, adjusting to the suitability of the context

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
