Simplifying Square Roots
By Roy Peterson
In this learning activity you'll simplify square roots involving the product of a numeric and variable term.
In this interactive object, part 3 in a series, learners follow the steps of the “mathemagician” to examine four numerical curiosities: What’s Special About 1089, Perfect Squares: 1089 and 9801, The Mathematical Significance of 1776, and The Calculator Number Game. The learner will also study six number patterns and look at one remarkable table. Immediate feedback is provided.
