Lesson Plan: Estimating Radicals Using Number Lines Mathematics
This lesson plan includes the objectives and prerequisites of the lesson teaching students how to estimate the 𝑛th root of a number using number lines.
Students will be able to
- understand that if with being a positive integer (or with being odd), then the root of lies between and ,
- locate the root of a number on a number line showing the two consecutive integers and such that (or with being odd).
Students should already be familiar with
- roots as inverse operations of raising to the power.
