A "how to" blog post for a middle school, cooperative group activity. Your students will work together to order whole numbers (positive and negative), fractions, decimals, square roots, exponents, rational and irrational numbers, etc. Great for informal assessment. #numbersense #middleschoolmath #cooperativelearning
This card sort activity has students categorize 24 statements about the Real Number System as Always True, Sometimes True, and Never True. The statements relate to the different types of numbers in the Real Number System: Real, Irrational, Rational, Integer, Whole, and Natural. 8.2A Extend previous knowledge of sets and subsets using a visual representation to describe relationships between sets of real numbers
Estimating Square Roots: In this estimating radicals activity, students will engage in Think-Pair-Share, individual, and whole group learning throughout the components of the lesson. Students will be able to estimate square roots to the nearest tenth and compare the sizes of rational and irrational numbers using a number line.
crazy foldable with the Ladder Method for using Primes to find the LCM and GCF. My Middles LOVED it! They LOVED the ladder method. They LOVED the fact that they didn't have to do 2 different steps to find the Greatest Common Factor and then the Least Common Multiple. I hope they remember it when we get to fractions!
