For my Algebra 2 students, I plan to give my students strips of numbers. Each strip will correspond to one of the subsets of the real numbers. It will not be labeled however. I want them to take these numbers and try to figure out how they nest on to the graphic organizer. I'm hoping that they will discover for themselves that every natural number is a whole number, every whole number is an integer, etc.
I ran across this in a pile of math resources I was given. Something to think about:
I am using interactive notebooks with my Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 students. So, I have sized it to fit in a composition notebook.
|Left Hand and Right Hand Side for Algebra 1|
|Real Number System Graphic Organizer. I want the students to outline the boxes with colored pencils to emphasize the fact that everything inside the red box is an integer, even the whole numbers and natural numbers.|
