8th Grade Math (Pre-Algebra) Quiz Show Game Real Numbers and the Pythagorean Theorem in a PowerPoint Presentation
This Quiz Show game, Jeopardy Style, is a great way to review a chapter. There are 25 questions and a scoreboard so you don’t have to write the score on a side board. Each page has the point value!
This Quiz Show game covers all of the following:
Finding Square Roots
Finding Cube Roots
The Pythagorean Theorem
8.EE.2, 8.G.6, 8.G.7, 8.G.8
Approximating Square Roots
8.NS.1, 8.NS.2, 8.EE.2
Using the Pythagorean Theorem
8.EE.2, 8.G.6, 8.G.7, 8.G.8
This lesson applies to the Common Core Standard:
The Number System 8.NS
Know that there are numbers that are not rational, and approximate them by rational numbers.
1. Know that numbers that are not rational are called irrational. Understand informally that every number has a decimal expansion; for rational numbers show that the decimal expansion repeats eventually, and convert a decimal expansion which repeats eventually into a rational number.
2. Use rational approximations of irrational numbers to compare the size of irrational numbers, locate them approximately on a number line diagram, and estimate the value of expressions (e.g., π2). For example, by truncating the decimal expansion of √2, show that √2 is between 1 and 2, then between 1.4 and 1.5, and explain how to continue on to get better approximations.
Expressions and Equations 8.EE
Expressions and Equations Work with radicals and integer exponents.
2. Use square root and cube root symbols to represent solutions to equations of the form x2 = p and x3 = p, where p is a positive rational number. Evaluate square roots of small perfect squares and cube roots of small perfect cubes. Know that √2 is irrational.
Understand and apply the Pythagorean Theorem.
6. Explain a proof of the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse.
7. Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to determine unknown side lengths in right triangles in real-world and mathematical problems in two and three dimensions.
8. Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to find the distance between two points in a coordinate system.
