Set Significant Figure Checking for Assignments

Some numerical questions require your students to specify the correct number of significant figures in their response in order to receive credit. You can configure whether your assignments check significant figures for these questions or treat them like ordinary numerical questions; what tolerance to use when significant figures are checked; whether to award partial credit for numerically correct responses that are specified with too many significant figures; and what kind of help to provide students about specifying significant figures in their responses.
