Welcome to the Mobile Math Lab! Here, you may watch an array of short video clips from basic math calculations to calculation of IV flow rates, solutions, parenteral and non-parenteral medications. These clips play easily in QuickTime and may be download to your Ipod or MP4 player so you can learn "On the Go!" or you may view at home on your PC or laptop. Convenience is the key! Clips are added frequently, if you do not see an instructional clip that you need, just ask. We can add it.
