In Pharmacy Mathematics you are introduced to fundamental mathematical and statistical techniques that are required for pharmacy studies and research. In the first component, you will apply methods of differential and integral calculus to model phenomena in pharmacokinetics, chemical kinetics, epidemiology and demography. The second (larger) component you will study statistical methods and their applications in health, pharmaceutical and biological contexts. The topics include random variables, distributions and probability, confidence intervals and significance tests for means and proportions, and chi-square tests for categorical variables. Use is made of Microsoft Excel for data analysis.
