Rounding to Significant Figures

January 23, 2013
My year 9s are due to cover rounding soon. Having asked for inspiration on twitter, Chris Smith (@aap03102) sent me a link to his TES resource (here) in which he uses an infographic as material for rounding. This is rather cool and much more interesting than the standard kind of questions.

Also, the two algorithm pdfs will be useful for our yr9 coding enrichment activity – bonus!

So, inspired by this, I’ve found a couple of these infographics to use myself. I think the Domo one has slightly more scope for rounding to 2 or 3 sig figs.
The Domo infographic was found here.
The 60 seconds one was from here.

Thanks Chris!

PS Yes, this is another post that shows how useful Twitter is.
