This course is designed to extend student’s confidence and understanding of mathematical and

statistical concepts and processes that are needed within a nursing or health context. They will use

mathematical methods, both with and without a calculator, to solve contextualised problems and

communicate findings using appropriate mathematical language.

Learning Outcomes:

1. Demonstrate and apply proportional reasoning skills, numeracy and measurement concepts

to solve a range of tasks relevant to nursing or healthcare.

2. Use mathematical and statistical methods appropriately to investigate and analyse medical

related information.

3. Work both independently and collaboratively to explore and solve a range of tasks in a

healthcare context.

4. Use appropriate mathematical and statistical language and conventions to clearly

communicate mathematical concepts in a healthcare context.
