What educators are saying

The students enjoyed being able to do something other than a typical worksheet and really enjoyed the activity.
Great practice that focuses on finding those extraneous solutions. I love how there are two versions.

Students work in partners to solve radical equations that require factoring in this collaborative "Around the Clock" activity. Each partner gets a clock with 12 unique radical equations to solve and an answer sheet. Each partner's clock problems are different but the answers are the same, encouraging collaboration and teamwork. If one student gets stuck, the other can help. If student answers differ, they work together to figure out the correct answer before moving on to the next problem.

The activity is self-checking, providing students with instant feedback. It includes a printable version, a digital version in GOOGLE Slides, student answer sheets and an answer key.

How the activity works:

Students paste their START slip at 12 o'clock, solve its equation and find the solution on the top of another slip. They then paste this next slip at 1 o'clock and solve its equation. Each answer students find will lead to the next equation to solve.

Students solve all 12 radical equations until they get back to 12 o'clock. If all equations have been solved correctly, the solution to the problem at 11 o'clock will be found at the top of their START slip.

*All equations require factoring to solve. All quadratic A values are 1.

**This activity can also be given to individual students to complete. To use it this way, give each student one of the clocks. The activity is still self-checking. For the GOOGLE Slides version, make a copy of the activity and delete the second clock before sending to students.
