It satisfies some of the requirements for common core algebra (HSN.RN.B.3). These radical expressions has terms with coefficients and variables. The purpose of this assignment is to reinforce the concept of using the correct steps to multiply radicals. I like to have the students write what step they are using to solve the problem. Problems #2 and 9 don’t have variables, the rest of the expressions does have variables. This worksheet is two pages in length, but there are a modified set, limited answer key and answer key for a total of eight pages. Prerequisite for students to know is the basic squares of commonly use values, how to simplify radicals, and integer rules. The first two pages are for the general students. Pages three and four are modified to help students complete this assignment. The limited answer key is for students to check their work and answers. It only has the odd numbers completed. The crucial concept for the student to understand is that a perfect square under a radical symbol can be simplified. I am using parenthesis to show multiplication, because it can be confusing for students with messy penmanship when working with decimals.
