  • 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
