1 Scaled Instruments Accurately Reading Them

2 What are They? A device that has ordered markings at an equal distance from each other. Used for measurement

3 Examples

4 Reading Them Look closely. Don’t Rush.

5 Reading Scales The key to Success.

6 Formula for Success Value of Each line = JUMP divided by # of SPACES JUMP # of SPACES = Value of Line

7 What’s a “Jump” Jump is the value between the NUMBERS on the scale. JUMP Jump = 5 “How much do the numbers count up by?”

8 What’s “# of Spaces?” # of spaces can be found by counting spaces between NUMBERS. Spaces # of Spaces =5

9 To The Formula JUMP = 5 # of SPACES = 5 JUMP # of SPACES 5 5 == 1

10 Value of Each Line is 1 Now you can find the value of any line

11 A Little Practice JUMP = ?? #of Spaces = ?? 10 ____ 10 =

12 Let’s Review “JUMP” is the value between the printed numbers. “#of Spaces” is the number of spaces you count between the printed numbers.

13 Let’s Review Formula for success is: JUMP #of SPACES

14 Off to the Lab Bring a Calculator
