There are three worksheets in this bundle:
1. Significant Figures - Counting
This self-checking worksheet takes the student through the task of counting sig figs. A number is presented to the student. The student must choose the number of sig figs by circling the correct solution in a multiple choice type format. That solution will help solve a puzzle at the bottom of the page.
2. Significant Figures – Adding and Subtracting
This self-checking worksheet takes the students through an addition or subtraction problem, and then asks the student to write the solution using sig figs. The answer key provided has both the precise solution as well as the solution using sig figs. When complete, the students will uncover some advice.
3. Significant Figures – Multiplying and Dividing
This self-checking worksheet helps the student through multiplying and dividing all sizes of numbers, but requires the student to use the proper number of sig figs in the solution. The worksheet contains all solutions which are similar, so the student must be careful to round to the proper number of decimal places. When finished, the student will discover the many different types of herds on this earth.
The chemistry teacher at my school used these worksheets in his chemistry class and the students loved it. "Worksheets are WAY better than book work," said one student. If a worksheet gets them to do homework, then why should teachers deny the students homework? Ha!
