# RTT 1170 Mathematics and Basic Physics Review in Radiation Therapy

This course provides instruction, review, practice and evaluation in mathematics skills specifically relevant to Radiation Therapy technology and the operation of a scientific calculator. Basic concepts of physics that are needed in preparation for subsequent radiation physics courses are explored, learned, and developed. At the conclusion of this course, the student will perform basic arithmetic operations and use negative numbers; formulate and evaluate ratios; translate verbal statement into algebraic expressions; solve simple linear equations; linearly interpolate; describe the nature of graphs of exponential expressions; analyze and state the fundamental qualities of physics; state nuclear structure; and explain electromagnetic radiation and the dual nature of the photon.
