Description:

This resource, part of the Open Door website, provides basic information on the role of measurement in experimentation. It explores methods for measuring very small distances, graphing experimental results, "best-fit" line, and explores the role of uncertainty in measurement. For the teacher who expects students to do experimental or quasi-experimental lab work, this resource provides support in graphing results, writing an experimental report, and how uncertainty in measurement affects the final results.
