4.7 Congratulations – you’re a scientist!
Well done for completing this four-week course on understanding numbers! Over the past four weeks you’ve looked at how scientists:
- communicate with each other
- calculate area, volume and density and what this means for the Greenland ice sheet
- present numbers using significant figures, decimal places, fractions and percentages
- use different types of averages, draw and interpret graphs and find correlations in data.
If you would like to take your study of science further, why not take the sister course,. It will help you think like a scientist by carrying out experiments at home and making your own observations.
We’ve also created an area to enable you to take your study of numbers in science further.
We would love to know what you thought of the course and what you plan to do next. Whether you studied every week, dipped in and out or jumped straight to the conclusion, please take our Open University end-of-course survey. Your feedback is anonymous but will have massive value to us in improving what we deliver.
