Unit 7, Lesson 13# Comparison of Irrational Numbers

EngageNY 45 min(s)

Students use finite decimal approximations of irrational numbers to compare the size of irrational numbers. Students place irrational numbers in their approximate locations on a number line. The first exercise may be used to highlight the process of answering and explaining the solution to each question. Consider allowing students to use a calculator to check their work, but all decimal expansions should be done by hand.
