Simplifying Surds - Connect 4

Simplifying Surds - Connect 4

A exercise in simplifying Surds in the form of a connect four game. I’m using it on iPads with my current class and asking them to change the boxes to their chosen colours but could be printed, laminated and used with counters. I always find with older students we are sometimes too content driven and wanted something a bit more fun for my S4 class. This could easily be adapted to any topic or the numbers changed to make it easier or harder.
