No. Surds are a part of maths, and are the opposite of powers.

How one understands surds depends on the person. If you would like to know what surds are, or have help understanding surds A surd is an unresolved radical, meaning that it is a root with the radical sign still on it. It is easier (and more accurate) to express it this way than writing it out for many numbers if the root is irrational. The concept of irrational numbers (which is what surds are, usually) can be confusing. In short, they are numbers that are not rational, that is, they cannot be written as a fraction. When using surds in math, you treat them just as you would a written out number.

Surds are normally irrational numbers.

Applied Maths was created in 1992.

Murderous Maths was created in 1997.

Roots that are irrational are called surds. There are irrational numbers that are not surds since they are not roots of any equation. For example, Pi. Rational roots, such as square root of 4, are not surds.

It depends on what your aims are. If you do not envisage using mathematics (except for day-to-day calculations) then one assumes you do not seek employment in engineering, still less are you concerned with mathematical theorems. In this case, surds won't be of much use to you, and thus you will not have an interest in this area. However, in terms of following a mathematical education through to year 10, surds are an essential element in understanding the square root system and, more broadly, the number system.
