Description

Class Experience

Students will identify the markings on a ruler including their incremental values and be able to put those in fraction form. Students will identify the level of precision for a variety of instruments, correctly report readings and calculate a final reading using significant figures.
Having taught for over 22 years at the high school level in Physics and Chemistry, and having a Masters in Secondary Education I feel there is much expertise in the subject of math skills that I can teach.  In the teachings of learners who have embarked on a career in science, it has been to their advantage to understand and utilize basic math skills, and even algebraic skills most specifically for the Physics based students. 
A self guided assignment will be given to encourage students to measure a variety of objects and report in correct significant figures.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
