Description

This fun paper chain resource is all about classifying and ordering rational numbers. Your middle school students will order 24 numbers. They will then classify them. Finally they will cut out the links and link them together in order from least to greatest. The links will form a growth mindset quote that your students can discuss in class. A comparing rationals worksheet with answers is also included.

Includes:

  • Twenty-Four rational numbers to classify, order, create a chain, and find the growth mindset quote.
  • Worksheet for comparing numbers (absolute value included) and writing about your quote included.

Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Understand the absolute value of a rational number as its distance from 0 on the number line; interpret absolute value as magnitude for a positive or negative quantity in a real-world situation. For example, for an account balance of –30 dollars, write |–30| = 30 to describe the size of the debt in dollars.
Interpret statements of inequality as statements about the relative position of two numbers on a number line diagram. For example, interpret -3 > -7 as a statement that -3 is located to the right of -7 on a number line oriented from left to right.
Understand ordering and absolute value of rational numbers.
Find and position integers and other rational numbers on a horizontal or vertical number line diagram; find and position pairs of integers and other rational numbers on a coordinate plane.
Recognize opposite signs of numbers as indicating locations on opposite sides of 0 on the number line; recognize that the opposite of the opposite of a number is the number itself, e.g., -(-3) = 3, and that 0 is its own opposite.
