Learning Outcome(s)

1. Be able to use mathematical tools in science

Syllabus

Mathematical tools: SI units (length, mass, time, area, volume, density, force); conversions, eg imperial to metric and vice versa; prefixes, eg giga, mega, kilo, deci, centi, milli, micro, nano, pico; accuracy of data (decimal places and significant figures); fractions; percentages; ratios; standard form; use of scientific calculators Scientific problems involving algebra: transposition of formulae; substitution of equations; simple linear equations, eg involving force and mass (F =ma), speed and distance (v =s/t), mole calculations (n =m/Mr), voltage and current (V =IR), density and volume (ρ =m/V) Mensuration: standard formulae to solve surface areas, eg total surface area of a cylinder = 2πrh + 2πr2, surface area of a sphere = 4πr2; volume of regular solids, eg volume of a cylinder = πr2h, volume of a sphere = 4/3πr3, volume of a cone = 1/3πr2h Scenario

You work for a pharmaceutical research company; the company would like to offer assistance and training for a new intake of employees who might find the mathematical demands of their new job challenging. In addition to providing helpful guides and resources for these employees you need to produce some assessment materials that will be used to assess whether employees require additional training. The assessment materials you produce will need to include questions and the answers to these questions so that they can be marked and assessed. Criteria

P1: Carry out mathematical calculations using suitable mathematical tools P2: Carry out mathematical calculations using algebra

M1: Use standard form to solve science problems

M2: Use mensuration to solve scientific problems

D1: Use ratios to solve scientific problems

D2: Use algebra to solve scientific problems
