I Did It Again

As you know if you have read this post, radical signs and I do not get along.  I am at the same point in the term and my students are again having trouble with simplifying $\sqrt{x^17}$.  The class didn’t go well.  I have just got to teach my students how to convert from improper to proper fractions.  I am going to go to my notes and rewrite that section right now.  Mea culpa.
