Identify Questions That Check Significant Figures

Many textbook questions do not specify significant figures in the answer key, so changing significant figure checking options will have no effect. You can check your assignment to see which questions specify significant figures in the answer key.

  1. In the Assignment Editor, click Expand All at the top of the Questions list.
  2. Look in the expanded questions for the sigfigs icon significant figures icon.

    The sigfigs icon identifies answer boxes that specify significant figures. It is always displayed in the Assignment Editor, even if the assignment options specify that the icon should not be shown to students.
