This is a task on the concept of Writing Numbers as Fractions and Types of Decimals.
This is a 5 page team task. In this task students will take turns as "Team Mathematician". Students will write rational numbers as fractions. Students will input real numbers into a calculator and determine the type of decimal. Students will justify their answers using academic vocabulary.
* This task will have your classroom rich in mathematical discourse.
*** My "Team Tasks" are created to be completed in Teams of four. Each student is a team member: Team Member (A), Team Member (B), Team Member (C), and Team Member (D). Each team member is required to participate regularly throughout the "Team Task" as Team Mathematician. My cooperative learning "Team Tasks" require the students to be actively involved throughout the entire "Team Task". The Role of "Team Mathematician" alternates throughout the "Team Task". My "Team Tasks" are designed to elicit mathematical discourse within the teams.
