Square Roots

In this square roots instructional activity, 9th graders solve 10 different problems that include simplifying with negative numbers. First, they identify the negative number in each equation and pull out from under the radical sign as i. Then, students determine the largest possible square that will divide evenly into the number under the radical sign. Also, they write the number in terms of multiplication and reduce the products to simpler terms.
