Heads up! We're upgrading the generator. Static PDFs available while we improve things.

The adding with significant figures worksheet maker randomly generates up to 30 problems. The problem sets are randomly generated using a custom algorithm, so students can have an almost unlimited number of unique worksheets to practice on. Each problem can be set to contain 2 addends, 3 addends, or a variety of 2 and 3 addends. The addends are generated, so that they have a wide range of precision. Therefore, students will need to apply the significant digit rules in order to properly round the answer for each problem. In addition to customizing the problems, you can customize the blanks on the page header. After the worksheet has been fully customized you can print it from you browser or download it has a PDF in US Letter or A4 page sizes.
