Striving for Accuracy and Precision

Inaccuracy and poor precision can lead to disasters in life and in school. An example of sloppy work was Chernobyl, in which a big nuclear reactor in Ukraine exploded because of sloppy maintenance and repair work. It spread radiation all over Russia and large parts of Europe. Often our children want to finish chores or homework or projects quickly so that they can just get it done! As parents and teachers we need to instill in our children and students the importance for accuracy. We will make mistakes and errors and fail from time to time, but that is also when we learn.

A man who has committed a mistake and doesn’t correct it is committing another mistake – Confucius
