Sciensation Presents - Significant Figures
In this one-time class we explore where significant figures come from, how to determine them and how to use them in calculations. An important math skill and is valuable for science classes too, including Chemistry and Physics.

In this session we begin with reading measurements of varying precision, so that learners will see why significant figures are important. We begin with a fun activity of measuring followed by a small lecture on identifying significant figures and then practice our skill. We will end the session with a discussion of things that can be measured (such as time and distance) and student will be encouraged to practice their new skill moving forward. Students will be interacting with each other as...
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.
