This is a task from the Illustrative Mathematics website that is one part of a complete illustration of the standard to which it is aligned. Each task has at least one solution and some commentary that addresses important asects of the task and its potential use. Here are the first few lines of the commentary for this task: Place $\sqrt{28}$ on a number line, accurate to one decimal point....

In CK-12 Middle School Math Concepts Grade 8, the learning content is divided into concepts. Each concept is complete and whole providing focused learning on an indicated objective. Theme-based concepts provide students with experiences that integrate the content of each concept. Students are given opportunities to practice the skills of each concept through real-world situations, examples, guided practice and explore more practice. There are also video links provided to give students an audio/visual way of connecting with the content.

This task is intended for instructional (rather than assessment) purposes, providing an opportunity to discuss technology as it relates to irrational numbers and calculations in general. The task gives a concrete example where rounding and then multiplying does not yield the same answer as multiplying and then rounding.

For this lesson, students calculate the decimal expansion of pi using basic …

For this lesson, students calculate the decimal expansion of pi using basic properties of area. Students estimate the value of expressions such as pi2.

For this lesson, students know the intuitive reason why every repeating decimal …

For this lesson, students know the intuitive reason why every repeating decimal is equal to a fraction. Students convert a decimal expansion that eventually repeats into a fraction. Students know that the decimal expansions of rational numbers repeat eventually. Students understand that irrational numbers are numbers that are not rational. Irrational numbers cannot be represented as a fraction and have infinite decimals that never repeat.

Students know that every number has a decimal expansion (i.e., is equal …

Students know that every number has a decimal expansion (i.e., is equal to a finite or infinite decimal). Students know that when a fraction has a denominator that is the product of 2’s and/or 5’s, it has a finite decimal expansion because the fraction can then be written in an equivalent form with a denominator that is a power of 10.

When students plot irrational numbers on the number line, it helps reinforce the idea that they fit into a number system that includes the more familiar integer and rational numbers.

For this lesson, students know that the long division algorithm is the …

For this lesson, students know that the long division algorithm is the basic skill to get division-with-remainder and the decimal expansion of a number in general. Students know why digits repeat in terms of the algorithm. Students know that every rational number has a decimal expansion that repeats eventually.
