Day 10–What about 0.5?

day 10 definition text

Looking at CCSS 8.NS today,  I posed the question:   What kinds of numbers do we know already? Student responses included prime, composite, odd, even, positive, negative, fractions, and decimals.  We looked at number sets and how/where do their responses fit.  This definition for rational numbers (found in a grade level text) matched their description of fractions including a numerator and denominator.

I was curious, though, what they’d do with decimals–that they might see rational numbers ONLY as fractions after reading this.  Not a problem!!  🙂 Happy teacher!!
