I thought I would have plenty of time to get them typed and printed before school started, but I didn't account for kids coming in to get help on making up their quizzes!
At least that's what I've gathered from watching speed dating on tv and in movies. Each person should tell the other person how many significant figures they think they have. My physical science class had an odd number of students the day we did this, so I got to play along, too!(This is also the reason why I don't have any pictures of my students in action.) You'll just have to settle for pics of the cards. At FAU we hold a passion for Medicine and Technology, as well as for interdisciplinarity.My physical science students are currently working on determining the correct number of significant figures to use in different situations.The first step is for them to be able to recognize how many significant figures there are in a number.
I made posters to hang up in my classroom for them (and me!) to reference, but I also wanted to create an activity to get them up and moving about.I decided this was the perfect topic to make into a speed dating activity.I tried to include numbers written in scientific notation and numbers written in standard form.Then, I designed the file to print the correct number of significant figures on the back of the card when printed double sided .And, I hope there weren't any mistakes on the cards because I was sort of in a rush to get them made.
