This course provides a study of problems involving algebraic representations of the manipulation of radical expressions and the application of radical equations. Topics include simplifying and performing operations with radical expresssions and rational exponents, solving radical equations, and determining the reasonableness of a solution. Upon completion, students should be able to find algebraic solutions to contextual problems with radical applications.
·. Solve radical equations.
·. Explain the reasonableness of solutions found.
·. Perform operations with radical expressions.
