              Calculations with Surds

              By simplifying surds using square factors students learn how to evaluate and simplify expressions, such as, expanding brackets, collecting terms and substituting into formulae.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the product of two brackets involving surds.
              • Most students should be able to substitute a surd into an expression and evaluate the result
              • Some students should be able to solve problems using surds in context.
