Students order Real numbers in this math pennant activity that doubles as classroom decor. Each pennant comes with 4 Real numbers to order. Students cut out their 4 numbers and order them from least to greatest before pasting them onto their pennant. Real numbers include: terminating and repeating decimals, terms with pi, fractions, mixed numbers, perfect squares, imperfect squares, negatives. On each pennant there is an additional question for students to answer, such as "Which number is closest to zero?" or "Which numbers are irrational?". Once a pennant is complete, it can be hung along a string in your classroom to make a banner that shows the world that, "Hey, we know how to order Real numbers!"
There are 30 pennants, an optional student sheet and an answer key. A sheet with decimal approximations of each pennant's 4 numbers is also included. Each pennant also comes with a student answer card that can be passed in for credit. There is one pennant per sheet of paper. Each group of students can be given a set of pennants, scissors and either glue, tape or a stapler. Students can be in charge of cutting out the pennants. Groups can compete to see which group can complete the most pennants or your entire class can add pennants to one string as they complete each one. You may also choose to have your students color their pennants to add to your classroom decor.
