(ALL OPERATIONS)

SIMPLIFYING RADICALS MATH LIB!(includes higher indexes)

Objective: To practice simplifying, adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing radical expressions with higher indexes. This includes square roots, cube roots, and fourth roots. Variables are included. Division problems require rationalizing the denominator, which includes multiplying by the conjugate. This activity was created for an Algebra 2 level class.

Activity Directions: Print and post the ten stations around the room. Give each student the worksheet to record their work as they travel to the stations. Group students (I typically do groups of 3) and assign to a starting problem. Set the timer for 3-4 minutes (more if needed). Students solve the problem at the station, recording their work on their recording worksheet. They look for their answer and record the piece to the story on the math lib. When the timer goes off, they move to the next station.

You are able to edit each slide to change the teacher name and all story elements to personalize for your students. PowerPoint is required to edit the slides. They enjoy seeing which one of their teachers is the “star” of the story!

10 Stations & Student Worksheet(All story elements are editable!)

Directions: Solve the problem at each station. Identify the answer

and fill in the blanks on the back to complete the story.
