"Using a Paper Ruler Activity to Help Students Understand the Difference Between Random and Systematic Errors"
with Jamis Perrett, Texas A&M University

2:30 to 3:00 pm Eastern time, August 23rd, 2011

Class activities that get students to physically participate in the data collection can be fun for the students, can keep them attentive during class, and can help them remember key concepts. The paper ruler activity is a fun way to solidify students' understanding of the difference between random and systematic errors and the only material needed for the activity is a piece of paper and a pen/pencil.
