Product Description

Included in this purchase are the materials I use to introduce students to simplifying square roots. I use a notes guide for students that corresponds with an enclosed PowerPoint. This also includes a PowerPoint (and PDF), and video for instruction as well as practice problems.

The lesson is broken down into two parts:

Part 1 - The students are given radicals with the numbers already broken down into their prime factorization. They are instructed to identify pairs of numbers to simplify the expression.

Part 2 - You review with the students how to create factor ladders. I have found that factor ladders are more organized and result in less mistakes that factor trees.

Before this lesson, I play The Simplifying Radicals Game with my students to reinforce the idea of finding pairs. Check out that game here:
