8.NS: The Number System

1.1: Know that there are numbers that are not rational, and approximate them by rational numbers.

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.NS.2: Use rational approximations of irrational numbers to compare the size of irrational numbers, locate them approximately on a number line diagram, and estimate the value of expressions (e.g., n²).

Generate the equation y = mx for a line through the origin (proportional) and the equation y = mx + b for a line with slope m intercepting the vertical axis at y-intercept b (not proportional when b does not equal 0).
