Chapter 1

Significant figures
Chem Team Tutorial (Geared to High School Chemistry)
Math Skills Review (From Texas A&M)
Practice Problems (From George Wiger, CSUDH)
Note the first two pages make an issue about rounding a 5 of to the nearest even number. That only applies to the rare situation when it is 5 exactly, so a number like 2.3654 would be rounded to 2.37 to 3 significant figures.
