This engaging maths skills worksheet provides a mini workout in decimals and precision. It could be used as a revision exercise or intervention activity to help students gain confidence.

There are six tasks that are based around the amount of precision needed when manufacturing car parts. In the first tasks, students are asked to write some measurements of car parts correct to a certain number of decimal places to decide if they could be used or rejected. 

In the final tasks, students are asked to consider why working to the correct number of decimal places is important.

The answers are included.
