The Real Number System offers a fresh overview on the history, definitions and characteristics of the five types of numbers in the real number system. Informative and entertaining, "The Real Number System" helps explain the distinction between a rational number and an irrational number and may even pique your interest in the history behind the numbers we take for granted in our everyday lives. As a teacher, host Laura Keane was motivated to create this presentation in an attempt to shed light on the distinctions between the types of real numbers that many students are expected to understand but to which they may have never been introduced. Laura Keane earned a Masters in Mathematics from the University of South Florida and has taught a variety of undergraduate courses at both the University of South Florida and the University of Tampa in Tampa, Florida.
