Engineering in Higher Education -- significant figures I am currently in my 4th semester. It seems that every engineering textbooks I encounter have no regard of significant figures (SF). Every problems and examples I encounter are like that. Mostly integers, some have decimal figures, but the answers never pay attention to SF. On my first year I was doing Physics where SF is a very important concept but now it has been forgotten. How about you all? My textbooks are pretty famous and used worldwide. I wonder if your courses disregard SF too.
