Calculations with Surds

              Calculations with Surds

              Students learn how to expand a pair of brackets with surds.

              Later, as learning progresses they perform calculations involving surds without a calculator.

              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.
