In yesterday's PM class and today's AM class we took a 3 point quiz and then went over several key math skills students need for the coming lab activities.
We went over the rules for adding and subtracting numbers with regards to significant figures (answer must be in the lowest number of decimal places) as well as the rules for multiplying and dividing (product must be in the lowest number of SigFigs).
We are getting into the metric system and for some students, this can be confusing. Please reinforce conversions at home and look at some household goods with both metric and English units discussing the differences.
Please encourage you student to practice these skills using the games I have placed on the Physical Science page:
