I was having trouble with my significant figures, but this makes it much easier to remember what is significant and what isn’t.
Enjoyed the helping hints!
This app helped me form a deeper understanding of significant figures! The hints were helpful when I was stuck on where I was going wrong.
Sig Figs are so simple now!
I’ve always tripped up when it comes to sig figs and this app dumbed it down and explained to me very simply what I was doing wrong.
