Need rigorous simplifying square roots practice in an atypical worksheet? Try this Choose Your Poison Simplifying Radicals Worksheet. Each row has three radical expressions to simplify (only square roots). Students choose only 2 problems per row – thus Choose Your Poison. Be surprised as students choose problems that best stretch their current skill level. All answers on a row will match. Matching answers allows students to navigate around common errors in challenging problems and also provides immediate feedback without teacher input. A total of 15 radical problems are on a worksheet. Find a mixture of content: adding & subtracting radicals, multiplying & dividing radicals, rationalizing the denominator, simplifying the square roots of non-perfect squares. Find both an easy and harder level of this square root practice, but consider this only one activity because the answers of both levels match for easy differentiation.
