8.NS.1. Know that numbers that are not rational are called irrational. Understand
informally that every number has a decimal expansion; for rational numbers
show that the decimal expansion repeats eventually, and convert a decimal
expansion which repeats eventually into a rational number.
8.TT.1 Use technology and other resources for assigned tasks.
How can I determine the difference between rational and irrational numbers?
In what ways can rational numbers be useful?
Students distinguish between rational and irrational numbers. Any number that can be
expressed as a fraction is a rational number.
Students recognize that the decimal equivalent of a fraction will either terminate or
repeat. Fractions that terminate will have denominators containing only prime factors of
2 and/or 5.
