Radicals are rad!
I wonder if they can be simplified? Hmmmmm….
“ Simplified” means that there are no perfect square factors in the radicand.
Objective: Given 10 different radicals, students will be able to simplify at least 9 of them correctly.
Purpose: <ul><li>To be able to compute radicals and express the answer in simplest radical form </li></ul><ul><li>To do we...
Prior knowledge: Name the perfect squares from 1 to 400. 1 4 9 16 25 36 49 64 81 100 121 144 169 196 225 256 289 324 361 400
Why are they called perfect squares? Because they are the areas of squares. 1 1 2 2 3 3 A = 1·1 A = 1 A = 2·2 A = 4 A = 3·...
Is 8 a perfect square? No o o o o o   !
What symbol is used to represent square root?
Name the parts: radical,  radical sign,or square root sign
Name the parts: radicand
Simplify the following: 11  15 7  17
What if the radicand is not a perfect square? Huh?
1) Rewrite the radicand using prime factorization. That’s easy!
2) Use the following theorem: Why separate here? Because
3) Replace the perfect square radicands with the whole number equivalent. Sikes!
Is Simplified? Yes! Because the radicand has no perfect square factors.
That was way easy!  Give me another one to work out. Simplify:
