Students use place value to round a number to a significant figure.
As learning progresses, they are challenged to approximate square and cube roots.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
- All students should be able to round a positive number, greater than one to one significant figure.
- Most students should be able to round any number to one or more significant figures.
- Some students should be able to calculate the limits of accuracy when a number has been rounded to a significant figure.
