MA.7-8.1.3.a: Mathematics

Recognize the absolute value of a rational number as its distance from zero.

MA.7-8.1.3.b: Mathematics

Simplify numerical expressions, including those with whole number exponents and absolute values, using the order of operations.

MA.7-8.1.3.c: Mathematics

Solve problems involving rational numbers, percents, and proportions.

MA.7-12.1.1.a: Mathematics

Define a rational number as a point on the number line that can be expressed as the ratio of two integers, and points that cannot be so expressed as irrational.

MA.7-12.1.1.b: Mathematics

Classify numbers as rational or irrational, knowing that rational numbers can be expressed as terminating or repeating decimals and irrational numbers can be expressed as non-terminating, non-repeating decimals.

MA.7-12.1.1.c: Mathematics

Classify pi and square roots of non-perfect square numbers as irrational.

MA.7-12.1.1.d: Mathematics

Place rational and irrational numbers on a number line between two integers.

Reviewer Comments:

This animation/simulation uses Instructional Architect. Students are able to practice computations with integers using a number line, counting chips and other online activities. The lesson suggests starting with a pre- and and post-test; however, they were not provided. The goal of this animation/simulation is for practice n=integer operations, not to teach these concepts.
