A SURD is a number that cannot be easily simplified further than its square root form...if it was in decimal form it would go on forever! In this class, students will be introduced to the concept of SURDs and how they can be related to fractional indices. Students will also learn how to simplify and perform different operations on SURDs. They will also be introduced to the concept of rationalisation and how to rationalise denominators containing surds. This class is great for students in Years 10 and 11 who want to feel confident on the topic!
