When we truncate a number, we find an estimate for the number without doing any rounding. In this class, students will learn the mathematical meaning of truncation and will learn to truncate numbers to different degrees of accuracy. Students will also learn how to write error intervals by truncating a number. This class is aimed at students in Years 10 and 11 or eager Year 9 students who want to feel confident in their maths skills!
