Module 3  Topic 1  Radical Functions
"This topic presents opportunities for students to explore radical functions, rewrite radical expressions, and solve radical equations. Radical Functions begins with an introduction to radical functions as inverses of power functions. Students graph radical functions, write their equations, and determine their key characteristics. Lessons then expand on this knowledge for transformations of radical functions. In the later part of the topic, students rewrite radicals using rational exponents and extract roots from radical expressions. Students also multiply, divide, add, and subtract radical expressions. Finally, students analyze solution strategies for radical equations, and solve problems in realworld situations using radical equations." Carnegie Textbook 
"The most basic radical function, climbs steeply at first, then more shallowly. This breaching humpback has a similar trajectory."  Carnegie Textbook
