Introduction
Time
Practice 3 radicals by grouping questions.

2x2+7x+3, 6x2+5x-6, 8x2+14x-15

When you have ab=0. What are possible solutions to this
equations?
a=0 or b=0.
So then if (x-3)(x+2)=0? X=0 or x+2=0 so x=0 or x=-2.
So if I gave you an equation like our practice, how could we get it

into
minutes
the form to figure out when it is zero? This is called solving
quadratics
by factoring.
So how about then: 6y2-y-15

Assessments (2): Observe as students are working

Learning Activity
#2

Solving radical equations with factoring:


First look at equations where there is a variable not under the
radical
sign. Use procedure for solving equations then factor to get a
solution.
Now take a look at equations involving 2 radicals. Isolate the more

complex radical, square both sides, isolate radical, square both

sides
again, and solve using factoring.
Examples:

m 2 m+3=6
7+ 3 x= 5 x + 4+5

Assessments: (1,2) observations of students as they
work
Differentiation: work one on one with students who need
more instruction
Run through all the topics that will be on the unit test.
WRITE ON THE BOARD
Do an example for each type, have students self-assess
which topic they need to work on.
