#### OVERVIEW:

Grade 8 Math - Approximating Irrational Numbers is a free educational video by Lumos Learning.It helps students in grades 8 practice the following standards 8.NS.2,8.NS.A.2,.

This page not only allows students and teachers view Grade 8 Math - Approximating Irrational Numbers but also find engaging Sample Questions, Apps, Pins, Worksheets, Books related to the following topics.

**
1. 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., ?^2). For example, by truncating the decimal expansion of ?2 (square root of 2), show that ?2 is between 1 and 2, then between 1.4 and 1.5, and explain how to continue on to get better approximations..
