# Chapter 7: Using Real Numbers and Right Triangles

Difficulty Level: Basic Created by: CK-12

## Introduction

In Math 8, the learning content is divided into Concepts. Each Concept is whole and complete providing focused learning on an indicated objective. Real-world Concepts involve the student in the learning objective of each Concept. Students are given opportunities to practice skills through real-world situations, examples, guided practice and independent practice sections. There are video links provided for Concept connections with technology. In this Chapter, students will engage with content that is related to using real numbers and right triangles. Concepts will include evaluating radical expressions, evaluating fractional powers, solving equations with radicals, classifying and comparing real numbers, irrational numbers, the Pythagorean Theorem, the Converse of the Pythagorean Theorem, indirect measurement, perimeter, area, the distance formula, special right triangles and trigonometric ratios.
