ISSUU - Grade 8 Algebra Interactive Notebook by Deborah Dyer
My 8th grade math students loved this digital real number system activity. This fun worksheet alternative is designed for Google Classroom / Google drive so I didn’t have to do any prep work. My students had so much fun sorting the different real numbers into the right categories ( Irrational, Rational, Integers, Whole, & Natural/Counting Numbers). I will definitely be using this again when we review our real numbers unit to test prep.
A fun way to have students review: Sets of real numbers Properties of the real number system Simplifying algebraic expressions Solving equations Solving inequalities Solving absolute value equations Solving absolute value inequalities This was used in my Algebra 2 class, though it can be used in an Algebra 1 class once all of these concepts have been taught.
