Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.

to radical expressions.Students will write algebraic proofs that show that a sum or product
of two rational numbers is rational; that the sum of a rational number
and an irrational number is irrational; and that the product of a
nonzero rational number and an irrational number is irrational.  Stimulus Attributes :
