Accuracy and Precision Posters

After making significant figure posters for my classroom, my mind started wandering to other topics that could also become posters.  Last week, we discussed the difference between accuracy and precision.  We took notes and classified targets according to their accuracy and precision.

I've uploaded the files here as an editable Publisher file and a non-editable PDF file.  For the editable file, you'll need to make sure you download these free fonts: ArmWrestler and Folks-Light.  

Oh, and you can find my significant figures posters here and my SBG posters here.
