Student Tips for Simplifying, Multiplying, or Dividing Radicals

To wrap up the lesson today, I had my students try to process their learning with an exit slip giving two tips for simplifying, multiplying, or dividing radicals.

Some of them referred to some notes we had written yesterday, some referred to something I'd said in the last couple days, and some used a kernel they'd picked up during class today that helped it click for them. We had a successful day, I think.

The "or dividing" is awkwardly  tacked onto the end of that heading because after I wrote "2 tips for multiplying or simplifying radicals," someone piped up, "Can we do dividing, too?" You win, students - its your class. :)
