Topic: Identifying Significant Figures in measurements.

Students have learned how to round. Unfortunately, they did not learn when
to round or why to round. We round to the significance of the measuring
devices we use.
The students will learn and practice the identification of significant
figures. There are five rules for the identification of sig figs.
The teacher will use notes and example problems to demonstrate the
application of the five rules and identify sig figs.
