I give this Quick Sheet to all of my students when studying the placement of significant figures. There are six basic rules to follow and sometimes it can be difficult to remember how to apply the rules. This is a quick memory device for the students to follow when calculating and solving math and science problems. This sheet includes the rules for significant figure placement, a table with example of each rule, the reason why we use significant figures, rules for exponents and tips for rounding numbers. This sheet could be placed in a class specific binder or each of the 5 sections could be cut out and placed into journals or interactive notebooks. I may use this sheet on the left side of my interactive notebook and on the right side have students solve one or two problems using all of the rules.
