Extension Maths

Learning Intention: To identify perfect square numbers and find their root.

Success Criteria: I can identify perfect square numbers.

     I can explain the properties of perfect square numbers.

     I can find the root of a perfect square.

     I can find the product of squared numbers.

A perfect square is a number that is a product of 2 equal numbers.

Or, more simply,

The product of multiplying a number by itself.

 Eg.

4 is a square number because it is the product of 2×2

9 is a square number because it is the product of 3×3

16 is a square number because it is the product of 4×4

Multiplying a number by itself, is represented by 2.

Therefore:

32 = 3 x 3 = 9

22 = 2 x 2 = 4

72 = 7 x 7 = 49

Solve the following:

  1. 42 =         2. 52 =        3. 102 =     4. 82 =     5. 112
  1. Which of the following numbers are perfect squares?

10        15        36        18        49        81

Square Root √

To find the square root of a number, we need to identify what number is multiplied by itself to give that product.

  1. Find the square roots of the following numbers: 9, 144, 25, 100, 49 64
  1. Solve the following equations (remember the order of operations – BODMAS):
    1. 3 + 4 x 32 =
    2. √36 + 20 ÷ 5 =
    3. 102 – √9 + 4 x 2 =
