Significant Figures: True or False Activity, Worksheet & Puzzle
Three activities to get students thinking deeply about significant figures:
*Significant Figures True or False (x2)*
In the grids are 8 true statements which students have to locate. The false statements are designed to focus on misconceptions, to help determine which students really understand how to round to significant figures.
*Significant Figures Worksheet*
A worksheet in three sections - section A requires students to sort numbers based on how many significant figures they have, then there is a multiple choice section and finally a few straightforward questions to answer.
Two short puzzles where students have to put the numbers in the correct parts of the grid to make all the rounding statements correct.
