I wrote this worksheet for my Algebra 1 students. They had already worked with simplifying radical expressions, so I wanted to extend their knowledge of how to work with radicals by having them solve simple radical equations. The most complicated of these problems requires them to isolate the radical, square both sides, and then check for extraneous solutions.
I use this activity within cooperative groups, and I circulate to make sure they are getting the purpose of the questions.
The file includes spiral review problems.
For this worksheet, I expect students to show their work on a separate sheet of paper.
