Radical Expressions and Rational Exponents

| No Comments | 1 TrackBack

I've been reading in several sources about public schools requiring Algebra II in high school. This is apparently because Algebra II is a good indicator of college and work success as noted in this Washington Post article. Looking over the sample problems they display with the article makes Algebra II look scary and full of rational exponents. But there need not be any fear as long as a good teacher is on hand to explain these concepts. And we've got the perfect solution with our Algebra II course taught by Professor Edward Burger!

I could think of no better set of lectures to highlight than the 6 covering Radical Expressions and Rational Exponents. This topic covers everything from finding real roots and simplifying radical expressions to writing expressions in radical form and simplifying expressions with rational exponents. Whew! Each subject is a natural progression into the next one, which is why I think everyone can benefit from today's video! Just remember that there are a total of 6 lectures on today's video and you'll need to click on the forward button to the left of the time stamp to move to the next one. Definitely view them all, the last one has a practical music application for all these concepts!
