This Estimating Square Roots
number sorting game will help students master this tricky concept in a fun and engaging way!
This product includes all square roots that aren't perfect squares. Students use their knowledge of perfect squares, like 144 or 81 to approximate the value of other problems. This skill paves the way for the Pythagorean Theorem and a whole host of other skills. It also builds deep estimating and number sense. This product aligns perfectly with CCSS 8.NS.A.2.
Each student is given a different game mat and a corresponding deck of 16 different square root cards. Students match each card with the corresponding answer on the mat. There are 10 different versions (labeled A - J) so the game can be used again and again!
This product includes:

This game can be used whole group, as a math center, in small groups, for partner work, as a take-home activity, or as a challenge activity for early finishers. The possibilities are truly endless!
The game is designed for 8th grade, but could also be used as a review game for any high school math classroom or as a challenge activity for 6th or 7th grade.
