Unit 1: THE NUMBER SYSTEM and EXPONENTS
Overview:
In this unit, students understand that there are numbers that are not rational, and use rational numbers to approximate these numbers. Students understand that numbers that are not rational are called irrational and understand that every number has a decimal expansion. For rational numbers students should show that the decimal expansion either terminates or repeats eventually. Students should also use rational approximations of irrational numbers to compare the size of irrational numbers and approximately locate them on a number line diagram.
Students will apply properties of the law of exponents to simplify expressions. Students will understand the meaning behind square root and cube root symbols. Numbers will be expressed in scientific notation so students can compare very large and very small quantities and compute with those numbers.
