• understand that the lower and upper bounds are the minimum and maximum possible values that a number could have before it was rounded,
• state that the range of values between the lower and upper bounds of a number is called the error interval,
• calculate the lower and upper bounds of a measurement given the degree of accuracy,
• give the error interval for a measurement given the degree of accuracy,
• find the error interval for a quantity that is calculated from one or more measurements given its or their degrees of accuracy.

#### Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

• rounding decimals to a given degree of accuracy.

#### Exclusions

Students will not cover

• error expressed as a percentage.
