After defining the different subsets of the real number system, students need to use the diagram and/or

their notes to answer the questions on the accompanying page. NOTE: The first diagram page has

blanks for the students to complete the definitions as they are discussed in class; the second diagram

page has the definitions.

NOTE: This is the first introduction of irrational numbers. Although students may have been told that

22

to represent Pi.and often struggle with the idea that it is

Pi is irrational, they have also used 3.14 or

7

irrational. One way to counter this is to go to http://www.joyofpi.com/pi.html to show students the

first 10,000 digits of Pi.

Real Numbers

**Natural Numbers: The counting numbers: {1, 2, 3 …}
**

Whole Numbers: The set of counting numbers plus zero: {0, 1, 2, 3 …}

Integers: The set of natural numbers and their opposites plus zero:

{…−3, −2, −1, 0, 1, 2, 3 …} The set of integers does not include decimals or

fractions.

Rational Numbers: Numbers that can be expressed as the ratio of two integers.

Decimal representations of rational numbers either terminate or

repeat.

Examples: 2.375, 4, −0.25, −0. 14

Irrational Numbers: Numbers that cannot be expressed as a ratio of two integers.

Their decimal representations neither terminate nor repeat.

Examples: ∏, 3 , 0.14114111411114…

Real Numbers: The set of rational and irrational numbers

**Real Number System Answer Key
**

1. How are the natural and whole numbers different? The whole numbers contain 0.

2. How are the integers and rational numbers different? The integers are whole numbers while the

rational numbers include fractions and decimals.

3. How are the integers and rational numbers the same? The rational numbers include all the

integers.

4. How are integers and whole numbers the same? Both sets of numbers contain the negative and

positive whole numbers, and zero.

5. Can a number be both rational and irrational? Use the diagram to explain your answer. No. The

diagram illustrates this by having the irrational and rational numbers separated.
