Leerdoelen After mastering the course the student is able to

1) Quantitatively analyze basic statistical problems and to evaluate the results.
2) Integrate a function of a single variable and to differentiate functions of two variables.
3) Calculate the solution of an Ordinary Differential Equation and to assess its stability.
4) To interpret and transform graphs from a logarithmic scale in a linear scale.
5) Identifying outliers of lab data and to analyzing the primary and secondary measurement errors as well as to perform a simple linear regression.
Omschrijving The course deals with the basic mathematics that a student of pharmacy requires to successfully complete her/his studies.
The course is partially divided into two groups because of the different prior knowledge or background of students with respect to mathematics A or B.
The course covers logarithms and exponents, graphs as well as their interpretation, and differential calculus. In the split part, the mathematics B group gets an introduction into statistics (probability distributions, average, standard deviation, medical tests and their interpretation), while mathematics A group concentrates on integral calculus, partial integration and substitution. Each group receives a summarizing lecture dealing with the ``other'' part. Next, all students learn linear regression, interpolation and extrapolation, error analysis, partial derivatives, gradients and extremes of functions (with one or two variables), ordinary differential equations (ODEs, solution techniques, balances and their stability).
The course frequently uses examples directly related to pharmacy practicals and pharmacokinetics in order to further motivate the student.
