Irrational or Not--Real Number System Activity
Includes 5 different activities that support student understanding of classifying, comparing and ordering real numbers.

Students work in groups/pairs to sort numbers into rational and irrational. Once they finish, they then sort all the rational numbers into subsets. Check their understanding by using the enclosed exit ticket.

Additional activities include ordering real numbers, placing real numbers on a number line and playing a game in pairs called partner pile-up. Also included is a graphic for recording sets of numbers in a size perfect for interactive notebooks and sorting pockets for students to keep examples of each number.

Answer keys are included as well as detailed instructions on what to print for each activity.
