### Description

Get students out of their seats and estimating square roots with this interactive Scavenger Hunt. Students will practice estimating radicals to the nearest tenth and comparing sizes of rational and irrational numbers. In order to complete this activity without a calculator, students should be familiar with perfect squares up to 324. There are 16 practice problems included in the activity. Students begin in different locations around the room and use their answers to find the next problem they must complete.

### Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
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.
