Algebra 1 - Multiplying and Dividing Radical Expressions

| No Comments | 1 TrackBack

Radical expressions can be some of the most intimidating math problems to encounter. This is especially true when you start multiplying and dividing square roots. What looks scary and difficult can in fact be simple and for some, fun. Professor Edward Burger will run through several difficult-looking problems in today's free Algebra 1 video on Multiplying and Dividing Radical Expressions. Our good friend FOIL returns as we learn more on how to simplify radical expressions. We're also diving into simplifying a fraction containing square roots which will involve rationalizing the denominator. Rationalizing the denominator is the process of simplifying a quotient containing a square root in the denominator by multiplying by a form of 1 in order to get a perfect square radicand in the denominator. With 4 lectures to learn from, you'll become fearless when it comes to multiplying and dividing radical expressions. Just make sure you click the forward button to the left of the time stamp to move to the next lecture on the video.

Don't forget about our Video Biology app! Just in time for the school year, we've released a free app that gives you access to our biology videos no matter where you are! The free app comes with 10 free videos. However, if you want to be able to view any of the over 300 lectures we have for Biology, you can pay a small fee for monthly access. This way you only have to pay for a few months to help you get through that biology course. Or maybe you want to test out our curriculum and see what our lectures are like. This is an inexpensive way to do just that. Just remember, when you do sign up for a full course with us, you not only get the video lectures, but a full dashboard, worksheets, tests, and interactive exercises to help you get your Biology on!
