Lesson Plan: Radical Equations Mathematics
This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to solve equations that include radical expressions, where the variable is the radicand, by raising each side to a power.
Students will be able to
- solve equations that include radical expressions,
- recall that is always a positive integer when is a perfect square,
- identify extraneous solutions.
Students should already be familiar with
- solving equations,
- radicals and powers.
Students will not cover
- graphs of radical functions.
