This is a double-sided notes page over simplifying square roots.
The front side begins by having the student label a schematic containing a radical. Next, the student is asked to list the perfect squares.
Then, the student is given specific steps as to how to simplify a square root by using perfect squares. The first example is fully worked out for the student, whereas the second example gives them blanks to fill in. Six more questions follow after this that can be used as guided practice.
The back contains notes on how to simplify square roots containing variables. The student is reminded what it means to square root something and then they are to list perfect squares containing variables.
Three more complete examples follow containing numbers and a single variable under the square root. All three examples contain the steps with explanation. 3 more questions follow that can be used as guided practice. Key included.
