What we did in 2 hours:

This week, we completed our Maths topic on Approximation & Estimation.

First, we learnt about significant figures. Please spend some time revising and memorising the five rules for significant figures, especially rules 2 to 5 that tell you whether a zero is counted as significant or insignificant. Then, we proceed to learn and practice how to do approximation and estimation questions correct to the number of significant figures required.

Finally, a test was given at the end of lesson. Marked test papers will be given back in the next lesson.

What you take home:

Do remember to complete your Take-Away Questions on Approximation & Estimation.

Worked solutions can be found here:

Special Mention:

We are back to Science topic next lesson. This time we will be doing the topic on Mass, Weight & Density and… Guess what? We are going to have fun playing PMC Kahoot at the end of lesson!!

See you again soon. 🙂
