This is an Adding/Subtracting Radicals Around the World activity (also known as scavenger hunts). Students love being able to get out of their desks and move around the room! There are a total of 12 problems that require the students to simplify the radicals first and then combine like terms. These problems are geared to a remedial or standard level class. This activity works wonderful in my lower level classes!
•Each page is printed and put up around the room (not in order).
•Students can start at any location.
•The top half of the sheet is the answer to a different problem and the bottom half is the problem that they should work on.
•After they calculate their answer, they find the page around the room that has the answer and go there for their next problem, then repeat.
•Students should write down their work and answer for each problem to turn in.
•Students should end up at the problem that they started on.
•The key to the scavenger hunt letters is K, B, C, L, W, A, X, G, R, F, Y, and T.
