Unit 3: Relationships between Quantities/Reasoning with Equations
Lesson 12 of 15

Objective: SWBAT Solve simple radical equations in one variable.

Big Idea: Radical expressions are common in geometry, trigonometry, and in the building professions. The voltage formula in electrical engineering for example, is V = √PR. Students need to be confident solving radical equations.
