MATHEMATICS FOR ALLIED HEALTH SCIENCES 
3 credits, 3 hours 
Prerequisite: Passing Score on the Compass/CMAT Test
This course is designed for Radiography students and will aid them in applying mathematical concepts to “onthejob” situations as well as in their development of proportional thinking. The course will include an integrated review of mathematical skills and concepts required in radiography, in particular the topics pertaining to formation and manipulation of analog and digital images. Units of measurements, formula equations, proportionality, inverse proportionality, direct square and inverse square proportionality. Proportionality and involved proportional thinking will have three representatives: algebraic, geometric and percent. Each particular formula equation originating in radiology will be generalized to at least on other domain. For example, together with Coulombs force, there also will be examples of gravitational force which has the same algebraic structure but a different physical meaning.
