Significant Figures Posters

Since I'm teaching physical science this year for the first time, I'm having to review a lot of stuff I haven't thought about since I was in high school.  One of those things is significant figures.

As I've been reviewing the rules in preparation to teach them to my students, I decided it was time to start making some physical science posters for my classroom.  When students started finding out that I was going to be teaching physical science this year, the first thing they mentioned was that I would have to make science posters.  That time has come.



I think these posters are as much for me as for my students because I need the reminder, too!




Here's what the poster files look like:



Rules for handling sig figs when performing mathematical operations:



Rules for rounding with sig figs:

Want to download the files?  I've uploaded them here as an editable Publisher file and non-editable PDF file.  For the editable file you'll also need to download these free fonts: Wellfleet and Folks-Light.
