 Amsco Integrated Algebra I: Radicals and the Rational Numbers
This is a free lesson from our course in Amsco's Integrated Algebra
This lesson explains on the radicals,roots and rational numbers. The symbol √ is called radical sign and the quantity under the radical sign is called a radicand. A radical, which in any term containing both a radical sign and radicand, is called the root of a quantity. Some generalizations about all radicals that are square roots, whether they are rational or irrational numbers are: • for every non negative real number n:(√n)2=n and √n2=n.
• every positive number has two square roots:one root is positive number called principle square root, and the other root is negative number.These two roots have same absolute values.
• the square root of a negative number doesnot exist in the set of real numbers. The video below explains in detail with the help of several examples.

As many of you know, Winpossible's online courses use a unique teaching method where an instructor explains the concepts in any given area to you in his/her own voice and handwriting, just like you see your teacher explain things to you on a blackboard in your classroom. This particular lesson includes the teacher's instruction, practice questions as well as end-of-lesson quizzes for practice. As we mentioned above, you can enroll in our online course in Trigonometry by clicking here.

The format of Winpossible's online courses is also very suitable for teachers who are using an interactive whiteboard such as Smartboard on Promethean in their classrooms, because the course lessons can be easily displayed on such interactive whiteboards. Volume pricing is available for schools interested in our online courses. For more information, please contact us at
