This activity gives you an instructional piece, guide practiced, and a fun, yet challenging activity for your students to complete at the end. Your students will learn to differentiate between Rational and Irrational numbers, and also classify the Rational numbers into Counting, Whole, and Integers. My 8th grade students still love to color and find out what the mystery picture is at the end.
Objective: Classify Real numbers into being either rational or irrational numbers, and classify rational numbers into specific categories.
Know that numbers that are not rational are called irrational. Understand informally that every number has a decimal expansion; for rational numbers show that the decimal expansion repeats eventually, and convert a decimal expansion which repeats eventually into a rational number.
