Learning ActivitiesABV. Learning ActivitiesDirections: Get a dart board if you have in yourhouse, if none, draw in a two (2) whole bondpaper two big circles with a dot in the center asillustrated below.ELICITActivity 1:Let’s play Dart!ENGAGEActivity 2: Look and Find!Directions: In yourModule Notebook,answerthe following questions based on Activity 1.(Donot write anything on your module.)What can you observe from the two circles you hit?Describe the position of the marks in all five (5)attempts and compare it with one another.What circle shows accuracy through the marks hitby the markers?What circle shows precision?
6Directions: Tell whether the situations beloware accurate, precise, accurate but notprecise, precise but not accurate or neitheraccurate nor precise. Write your answer onyourModule Notebook.(Do not writeanything on your module.)Accuracy and PrecisionSource:Based on the above illustrations shown, accuracy is described as the closenessof the thrown darts to the target, which is the bulls-eye. The closer the darts are to thebulls-eye, the more accurate they are. Precision, on the other hand, is the closenessof the darts to each other, regardless of the accuracy. The nearer the darts are to each
