About This Chapter

The Types of Real Numbers unit of this High School Trigonometry Homeschool Curriculum course is designed to help homeschooled students learn about the different types of real numbers. Parents can use the short videos to introduce topics, break up lessons and keep students engaged.

Who's it for?

This unit of our High School Trigonometry Homeschool Curriculum course will benefit any student who is trying to learn about the types of real numbers. There is no faster or easier way to learn about the different types of real numbers. Among those who would benefit are:

  • Students who require an efficient, self-paced course of study to learn about irrational, natural, rational and whole numbers.
  • Homeschool parents looking to spend less time preparing lessons and more time teaching.
  • Homeschool parents who need a math curriculum that appeals to multiple learning types (visual or auditory).
  • Gifted students and students with learning differences.

How it works:

  • Students watch a short, fun video lesson that covers a specific unit topic.
  • Students and parents can refer to the video transcripts to reinforce learning.
  • Short quizzes and a Types of Real Numbers unit exam confirm understanding or identify any topics that require review.

What are the Different Types of Numbers?

1. What are the Different Types of Numbers?

Learn all of the different types of numbers: natural numbers, whole numbers, integers, rational numbers, irrational numbers, and real numbers. This video lesson teaches you how to classify any numbers you come across.

Graphing Rational Numbers on a Number Line

2. Graphing Rational Numbers on a Number Line

Number lines have many uses both in mathematics and everyday life. This lesson will teach you how to graph numbers on a number line and give real-world examples of how to use number lines.

Notation for Rational Numbers, Fractions & Decimals

3. Notation for Rational Numbers, Fractions & Decimals

How do fractions become decimals? And how do decimals become fractions? In this lesson, we'll learn about the notation of rational numbers, fractions and decimals and learn how they're related.

The Order of Real Numbers: Inequalities

4. The Order of Real Numbers: Inequalities

An inequality is an operation describing how one number can be compared to another. This lesson will describe and define inequalities and the symbols used to represent them. It will also give some examples on how to work with inequalities.

Finding the Absolute Value of a Real Number

5. Finding the Absolute Value of a Real Number

You can find the absolute value of any real number. This lesson will define absolute value, explain what real numbers are and give the steps to finding the absolute value of any real number.

The Commutative Property: Definition and Examples

6. The Commutative Property: Definition and Examples

There are three major properties that deal with the addition and multiplication of numbers. One of those properties is the commutative property. This lesson will define and give examples of the commutative property and how it works.

The Associative Property: Definition and Examples

7. The Associative Property: Definition and Examples

There are three basic number properties that help to form the backbone of algebra. One of those properties is the associative property. This lesson will define the associative property and give some examples of how it works.

The Multiplication Property of Zero: Definition & Examples

8. The Multiplication Property of Zero: Definition & Examples

The number zero has different rules than other numbers; it behaves according to it's own unique properties. This lesson will define the multiplication property of zero and give some examples of how it works.
