This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 4, Unit 8, Grade 8. In this activity, students determine the length of a "diagonal" line segment on a grid. Students can give an exact value for the length of the line segment by finding the area of a square and writing the side length using square root notation. The goal of this activity is for students to connect values expressed using square roots with values expressed in decimal form-a form they are more familiar with.
