### Jomari's Scribepost, November 26,2009

Today, Mr. Backe' told us some things about square roots.

We started the class learning some things about the squares we made for our previous classes (see the previous scribeposts.).
Here are a few things that we did:

To find the area(the amount of space inside) of a square, we need to find out the length and width and multiply them. Because the sides of a square are all equal, we only need to find one side and multiply it by itself to find the area.
Example:

We also learned that not all squares are perfect squares. Only squares with whole numbers as their sides are perfect squares.
We then learned about square roots. A square root is a number that can equal a given number by multiplying itself by itself.
Example:
Square root of 9 is 3
3²= 9
You can find a square root on a calculator by pressing the
button and the number you want to find the square root of.
Our homework is to find the square roots of all numbers from 5 to 9.

2. well done! you explained what a square root is and how to get the area of a square well..and the example you made really helps alot..

GOOD JOB

3. Good job Jo ! you explained what a square root is really well and how to get the area of a square really well . Also your examples made it easier to understand .

4. nice job jo, i understood how to get area of a square and what a square root is by your nice post *pat on the head*

5. good job on explaining what we did in class and showing how we didit.well done!
