Sig Figs for Final

Postby Jonghwee Park 1K » Sun Jun 10, 2018 10:42 pm

For the final, will we have to be exact with our significant figures or does it not matter like it didn't when we took our first test?

I think it will matter because I know sig figs were emphasized for the midterm. So just to make sure and avoid getting points off, it will be best to use sig figs for the final.

I think sig figs will be graded on the final like they were on the midterm.

I believe at this point we are expected to have the appropriate number of significant figures. I would imagine the grading/marking off for incorrect significant figures will be similar to the midterm.

Sig figs will be taken into consideration on the final as it was on the midterm

I believe that we need to know sig figs for the final.

I'm pretty sure sig figs matter in the final. Here is a helpful video

Although significant figures did not matter on the first test, I'm pretty sure we are expected to be exact with our significant figures, just as we were on the midterm because it is something that we were taught in class.
