2 simple principles it is based on
6 examples (including 2 that are two dimensions)

3. Scientific Notation as a review - not an introduction
5 practice

4. Using factor label with metric conversions
( so many teachers in the past have done these students a disservice by training them with a particular chart of prefixes & they have no idea how to do it without that chart!)
2 examples

5. Significant Figures Rules
10 examples

6. Rounding to Sig Figs after a computation
This DOES not go into the whole lesson of how to know HOW MANY sig figs the answer should have
