This 89 page file includes station activities focused on rational numbers, irrational numbers, and the Pythagorean Theorem. They are designed to align with common core standards for eighth grade math. You save 15% when buying the bundle as compared to all the activities purchased individually. As I add more activities, I will increase the price accordingly, but you will still have access to the file for no additional cost!! I've also included 5 pages of organizational tips and best practices for station learning in the classroom.
I created these activities to use in station rotations in an eighth grade classroom. However, they can easily be used in a variety of ways. You will find activities within this file also suitable for math centers, game day, formative assessment, or summative assessment. These activities cover:
Unit 4: Rational and Irrational Numbers
Unit 5: Pythagorean Theorem
As students rotate through stations, they are challenged in individual, partner, and group activities and games. I have included instructions for you as well as printable student directions for each activity. Whenever appropriate, answer keys are also attached. The following resources are included in this file:
1. Stations Organization and Tips (5 Pages!)
2. Math Match - Roots (36 Cards!)
3. Ordering and Operations - Roots and Irrationals (3 Stations in 1!)
CCSS.8: NS.A.1, NS.A.2
4. Poly-Problem-Solver - Decimals to Rationals (4 Versions!)
5. Triangler - Rationals to Decimals (16 Cards!)
6. Article - Pythagorean Theorem (With Partner Activity!)
7. GO FISH - Linear Equations (36 Cards!)
8. Dominoes - Pythagorean Theorem (18 Cards!)
9. Problem-Solving - Pythagorean Theorem (With Manipulatives!)
When I decided to give stations a try in my classroom I was amazed at how EASY it was to differentiate instruction. This was something I always struggled with in the past. I was also amazed at how much actual problem solving practice my students were doing in class, without my directing their every move.

Common Core Standards in this resource file include:
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.
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.
Explain a proof of the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse.
Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to determine unknown side lengths in right triangles in real-world and mathematical problems in two and three dimensions.
Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to find the distance between two points in a coordinate system.
