Scaled Instruments Accurately Reading Them
What are They? A device that has ordered markings at an equal distance from each other. Used for measurement
Reading Them Look closely. Don’t Rush.
Reading Scales The key to Success.
Formula for Success Value of Each line = JUMP divided by # of SPACES JUMP # of SPACES = Value of Line
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?”
What’s “# of Spaces?” # of spaces can be found by counting spaces between NUMBERS. Spaces # of Spaces =5
To The Formula JUMP = 5 # of SPACES = 5 JUMP # of SPACES 5 5 == 1
Value of Each Line is 1 Now you can find the value of any line
A Little Practice JUMP = ?? #of Spaces = ?? 10 ____ 10 =
Let’s Review “JUMP” is the value between the printed numbers. “#of Spaces” is the number of spaces you count between the printed numbers.
Let’s Review Formula for success is: JUMP #of SPACES
