This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 13, Unit 4, Grade 7. In this activity, students learn about how real-world limitations on humans using measuring devices can introduce measurement errors. They discuss possible sources of error and express the error both as an amount as a percentage. This is their first introduction into the concept of measurement error and how we use that to calculate percent error.
