Irrational Square Roots
Misiurewicz, Michal
College Mathematics Journal, v44 n1 p53-55 Jan 2013
If students are presented the standard proof of irrationality of [square root]2, can they generalize it to a proof of the irrationality of "[square root]p", "p" a prime if, instead of considering divisibility by "p", they cling to the notions of even and odd used in the standard proof?
