- Create additional practice problems relating reliability, accuracy, and precision to experimental results
- Bring in a magnetic or foam dart board and have class members determine their own personal reliability, accuracy, and precision

- Utilizes many graphs and graphics to support visual learners
- Video focuses on only these concepts, preventing scholars from becoming overwhelmed
