This task is geared towards geometry students with knowledge of the pythagorean theorem and an understanding of simplifying radicals. Students are asked to critique student interpretations of a problem. Ultimately, the task assesses the student’s ability to simplify radicals and recognize equivalence between different radical expressions. Students are asked to construct an argument by stating a claim and providing supporting evidence.
