In this activity, students will simplify radical expressions (square roots only) to reveal the state to which the fun fact refers! This activity is a great way to get students to practice their algebra skills while reinforcing their United State geography and history knowledge! The activity comes complete with a blank U. S. map (on which the answers are included so that students may "match" their answer with that state), but students may need additional resources (atlas, Internet, etc.) to name each state that includes an answer. You may want to discuss this activity with the history/geography teachers at your school for possible credit in both classes!
