Here's why it matters

According to the World Health Organization, medication errors cause at least one death every day and injure approximately 1.3 million people annually in the United States of America alone.

Realize that even the most seemingly benign circumstances, such as giving a patient a medication sample, can easily have negative effects on a patient's health if the dosage is inaccurate.

Practicing dosage calculations regularly and meaningfully helps students adhere to medication safety guidelines and prevent medication errors.

Here's a solution

Traditionally, students encounter medication dosage calculation problems presented in numerical expressions or word problems. In Ali's Story Challenge, students must apply their dosage calculation skills in an interactive scenario, allowing them to experience how the chain of events may occur in the real world.
