Product Description
This presentation introduces students to the Significant Figures method for uncertainty propagation. It begins with a simple example that illustrates the propagation concept. From there, the presentation defines and describes the least significant digit (LSD), the greatest significant digit (GSD), and the number of significant digits.

The presentation then goes on to cover significant figures rules for addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, exponentiation, and roots. Example computations are shown.

Finally, there is a discussion on uncertainty propagation in expressions with mixed operations.

This PDF file is intended to be presented as a slide show. For details on how to exhibit PDF files as slide shows, see the Help menu of your PDF reader.

The content is intended for grades 7 and up.

NOTE: All data, computations, and results are displayed in standard notation. Scientific notation is *not* utilized.
