This Differentiated Mystery Picture Color Activity: Operations with Radical Expressions is a fun worksheet that unlocks a secret picture once students complete the problems! Every correct answer provides a clue to color the grid and reveal a mystery image. There are more clues than there are problems, so students must solve ALL problems to determine which clues are the correct clues.
Space is provided for students to show work, because I like to see my students work :) and have opportunities for feedback.
Skill: Students will simplify radical expressions by adding, subtracting, and multiplying.
Differentiation: The activity is tiered into 2 levels of difficulty. Perfect for the inclusive classroom! Both tiers of difficulty result in the same picture. The harder set has 26 problems and is marked with a star, the easier set has 18 problems and is marked with a smiley face.
Common Core Standard:
CCSS.HSN.RN.A.2 Rewrite expressions involving radicals (simplify and/or use the operations of addition, subtraction, and multiplication, with radicals within expressions limited to square roots)
Answer key included.
