Algebra A Math: Radicals II

This topic continues the discussion of radicals. This series of five lessons introduces rationalizing the denominator, radical division, and simplifying radicals that contain variables.

The student begins to learn about radical expressions that contain variables. The student also learns the final arithmetic operation that involves radicals.

Simplifying Radicals: Rational Numbers

In this lesson, the student learns the quotient rule for radicals. This lesson also teaches the student the definition of a simplified radical.

Rationalizing the Denominator

This lesson shows the student how to rationalize the denominator. The mathematical standard of simplified radicals is explained to the student. The lesson then shows how to simplify the radical in a variety of examples.

Dividing Radicals

This lesson introduces the student to the division of radicals. The student learns how to divide radicals and uses the quotient rule for radicals to solve various radical division problems.

Simplifying Radicals: One Variable

In this lesson, the student is introduced to radical expressions that contain variables. The student learns how to simplify radical expressions that contain one variable in this lesson.

Simplifying Radicals: Two Variables

This lesson introduces the student to multi-variable radical expressions. The student learns how to simplify these expressions and learns the importance of not combining powers of the two variables.
