Advanced Radical Equations
Students solve radical equations by taking the nth root of the equation. In this algebra lesson plan, students simplify radicals and apply the concept of radical equations to the real world.
Extraneous Solutions to Radical Equations
Bringing it all together in this video, Sal incorporates the concepts from previous lectures (quadratic formula, multiplying polynomial expressions, radical expressions, exponents). This video would be a great way to end a unit or review for a unit test in your algebra class.
Doing Battle With Radical Equations
Students observe and solve examples of equations involving radicals. They complete a Doing Battle With Radical Equations worksheet and checklist.
TI-nspire-ing Extraneous Solution Understanding
Students explore extraneous roots to radical equations. In this Algebra II lesson, students solve equations which are typically "unanswerable" with paper and pencil. The use of the TI-npire provides a method of solution and moves the focus of the lesson to flexibility in problem solving.
Students find the roots of quadratic equations. In this algebra lesson, students solve radical equations and identify the positive and negative roots. They graph and analyze their functions.
Radical Equation Match Up
In this algebra worksheet, students match radical equations that are solve by squaring both sides. Once they finishing matching equations, they decode the hidden message. There are 13 questions.
nSpire-ing Extraneous Solution Understanding
Eleventh graders explore extraneous solutions to radical equations. In this Algebra II instructional activity, 11th graders explore the real and extraneous solutions to radical equations conceptually, graphically, and algebraically. The instructional activity employs the use CAS.
Roots of Radical Equations ID: 12213
Learners explore radical equations. For this Algebra II lesson, students solve radical equation graphically. Learners examine the roots of quadratic and cubic equations. TI-nspire handheld and appropriate application necessary.
Domain and Range for Radical Functions
Students calculate the domain and range of a radical function. For this algebra lesson, students graph radical functions and identify the x and y values as they relate to the domain and range. They use transformations to move the graph around on the coordinate plane.
Graphing Square Root and Other Radical Functions
In this instructional activity, students graph the square root and other radical functions by examining the parent function and the translations and shifts that occur within the function family. The two page instructional activity contains twelve problems.
In this algebra lesson, students solve radical equations by taking the square root of each side of the equation. There are 26 problems on this worksheet with an answer key.
More Involved Radical Equations
Sal is not kidding when he calls this radical expression "hairy" and "more involved." Though viewers might be daunted by the amount of work necessary in solving the problem, Sal is confident and collected throughout the video. It's helpful to see Sal work through a tougher problem using the same methodology that he employs for the simpler problems as well.
In this radical equations worksheet, students complete short answer questions about radical equations. Students answer 7 questions and look at many examples.
Solving Square Root and Other Radical Equations

In this radical equations worksheet, 9th graders solve 10 different problems that include various types of radical equations. They solve each of the problems listed that have radical equations in them.
Radicals, Complex and Absolute Value Numbers
Learners solve problems with exponents, radicals, absolute value and complex numbers. In this algebra instructional activity, students use properties of exponential functions to solve equations and word problems.
In this algebra worksheet, 11th graders solve equations containing roots and variables. They check their work for extraneous solutions. There are 28 problems with an answer key.
High schoolers graph functions that are given, and then they write the equations for the completed graphs. There are several problems included, and they are designed to be used without calculators.
7.6 Worksheet: Radical Equations
In this radical equations worksheet, students solve given radical equations. They solve problems containing variables, exponents, and fractions. This two-page worksheet contains 20 multi-step problems.
Transformation of the Radical Function
Eleventh graders investigate radical functions. In this Algebra II lesson plan, 11th graders use TI-Navigator and Navpad to explore the effect of changes in parameters on the graphs of radical functions.
