Use this resource, formatted for interactive notebooks, as a quick and easy reference to help students learn how to determine significant figures in scientific applications. The front page of the booklet includes a set of rules for determining significant figures in general applications and also math (addition/subtraction/multiplication/division) applications, and the inside of the booklet contains a series of practice problems to help students practice the skills they've learned on the front. The practice problems include both general questions and calculations that require students to calculate an answer to the correct number of significant figures. The download also includes the quick-reference tutorial sheet on its own, perfect for upper-level students that might not need to practice but do need a reference occasionally.
This is a great low-to-no prep activity to have on hand. Just print the booklet pages back-to-back, fold, and start teaching. The download includes a 1 page teacher guide, 2 page booklet, half-sheet reference page, and a 1 page answer key.
