Pharmacokinetics
According to the Medical dictionary the definition of “Pharmacokinetics is, sometimes abbreviated as PK, the word coming from Ancient Greek pharmakon "drug" and kinetikos "to do with motion,” is a branch of pharmacology dedicated to the determination of the fate of substances administered externally to a living organism. The substances of interest include pharmaceutical agents, hormones, nutrients, and toxins.” Pharmacokinetics is the study of the rate of drug absorption and disposition in the body. So, differential calculus is an important part in the development of many of the equations used. There are four pharmacokinetic processes to which every drug is subject in the body: Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism, and Excretion Absorption is the process by which a drug is made available to the fluids of distribution of the body. (i.e. blood or plasma) Most orally-administered drugs reach a maximum or peak level blood concentration within 1-2 hours. Once a drug has been absorbed from the stomach and/or intestines into the blood, it is circulated to some degree to all areas of the body to which there is blood flow and that is the process of distribution. Metabolism is the complex of physical and chemical processes occurring within a living cell or organism that are necessary for the maintenance of life. In metabolism some substances are broken down to yield energy for vital processes while other substances, necessary for life, are produced. Drugs are often eliminated by biotransformation, the alteration of a substance within the body, or excretion into the urine or the fluid that is made by the liver, also known as bile. The liver is the major location for drug metabolism, but specific drugs may experience biotransformation in other tissues. The metabolic transformation of drugs is catalyzed by enzymes, and most of the reactions obey Michaelis-Menten kinetics (a method of...

WHAT I LEARNED?
I learned many things this month. It was good that our teacher repeated the topics in basic math to strengthen our foundation. Even if we had a hard time, I don’t see any reason why we should complain because I understand that our wanted to master these topics to be able to move to a higher math. The topics tackled...

Calculus in Medicine
Calculus is the mathematical study of changes (Definition). Calculus is also used as a method of calculation of highly systematic methods that treat problems through specialized notations such as those used in differential and integral calculus. Calculus is used on a variety of levels such as the field of banking, data analysis, and as I will...

Reflective Paper 2
Math for Elementary Teachers II is the second part in a two part series. The mathematical concepts that were focused on throughout the second part of Math for Elementary Teachers were on measurement, geometry, probability, and data analysis. Just like part one of Math for Elementary Teachers, part two also...

(c) Draw on graphing paper a graph of M with respect to t and use the secant method to approximate the instantaneous rate of change at t = 2 seconds
M(1.5) = (1.5, 9.6); M(2)= (2, 8.9)
= (8.9-9.6)/(2-1.5) = -1.4

Calculus:
Calculus (Latin, calculus, a small stone used for counting) is a branch of mathematics focused on limits, functions, derivatives, integrals, and infinite series. This subject constitutes a major part of modern mathematics education. It has two major branches, Differential Calculus and Integral Calculus, which are related by the fundamental theorem of calculus.
Calculus is the...

...REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE
In a study, “Papers and Boards from Banana Stem Waste” in which they used banana stem waste in producing paper and board because banana is a very good source of cellulose. Banana stem waste, thrown away by farmers after harvesting of fruits, was procured as raw material. It was chopped by 3-4” size usually at a rate of about 100 kg material per day. The material was soaked in 1-2% NaOH for appropriate period. The alkali loosens the...
