These practice problems are used as guided notes during my math lab. The class provides extra time and support for struggling students. The sheets are cut and glued in composition books (math logs) that are kept in the classroom. Answers keys provided for all mini-lessons.
This set focuses on rational and irrational numbers. Some of the lessons involve practice with adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing rational numbers. Two lessons involve practice with irrational numbers.
The set of six mini-lessons includes:
Rational Numbers, integers, whole numbers and counting numbers (vocabulary and examples) Have students place examples of real numbers on the graphic organizer. For example, what number could be placed in all four categories? What number could be placed in integers and rational numbers? (See answer key for an example.)
Irrational Numbers (8.NS.1) Students are asked to define irrational numbers, to identify if a number is rational or irrational and to provide examples of numbers that are not considered irrational. A graphic organizer is provided for students to place rational and irrational numbers.
Practice with adding and subtracting rational numbers (7.NS.2)
Practice with multiplying and dividing rational numbers (7.NS.2)
Practice with rational numbers involving the four operations. (7.NS.2)
Real-world problems involving the four operations and rational numbers (7.NS.3)
Practice with rational and irrational problems (7.NS.1 and 8.NS.1)
