# Interactive video lesson plan for: Significant Figures Rules Explained Rounding Decimals, Zeros, Digits Uncertainty Chemistry & Physics

#### Activity overview:

This chemistry & Physics introduction video tutorial explains the rules behind significant figures. It shows you how to round decimals to the appropriate number of sig figs and how to determine which digit is certain and uncertain. This video contains plenty of examples and practice problems with solutions / answers to help you on your next homework / worksheet assignment or upcoming quiz. It's useful for kids learning sig figs.

Here is a list of topics:
1. Significant Figures - How to count it
