Lecture on Sig Figs?

Postby Joanne Lee 1J » Wed Oct 02, 2019 1:07 am

Hey everyone! I heard that there would be a lecture that includes sig figs, does anyone know if this is true or should I just go ahead and review it on my own?

it might be better to review it on your own so that even if we review it in class you understand it better.

My T.A. said that we should not focus too much on them, but if we want should go over them in our free time because it isn't covered in depth in lecture. Also, he said that sig figs are not usually looked for too much on tests, as long as you round reasonably. I would say that it is good to review them on your own time just in case.

Hey! If you go to Dr. Lavelle's website for Chem14A, there is a link titled "Everything you want to know about Sig Fig" that I found really helpful! Additionally there is a small section on Sig Figs in your textbook that you can review! Hope this helps! ;)

I don't think so as in the textbook sig figs are bunched together with accuracy and precision, so I don't think that he will cover it. Youtube videos and his page on sig figs help.
