These are Common Core Aligned Scaffolded Notes. They are made to be used as a note-taking guide in the classroom, particularly in states like Utah where Core-aligned books are not as readily available to match the state core. These notes include group exploration activities and classroom discussion. I have included a set of the "teacher's notes" that a teacher can use to review the lesson and also share on a class website with students who were absent the day of the lesson. This particular lesson gives a visual representation of the difference between rational and irrational numbers. It shows how real numbers can be divided intuitively into 2 groups: those with order and those that are chaotic. It helps students to see why repeating decimal are obviously rational without relying on the somewhat intensive process of converting a repeating decimal to a fraction.
