              Calculations with Limits of Accuracy

              Students learn how to find the limits of accuracy in calculations using the upper and lower bounds of different measurements.  As learning progresses students move from finding the maximum and minimum areas and volumes to substituting known limits into various formulae.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the maximum and minimum sum and difference using limits of accuracy.
              • Most students should be able to calculate the maximum and minimum product and quotient using the limits of accuracy.
              • Some students should be able to calculate problems in context using limits of accuracy.
