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.

I hope you guys liked my scribepost! Please leave a comment.

Awesome Post Jomari! You had explained everything we had done in class very well! The part I liked the most was the Square Root! Because I didn't really hear what square root stands for until I looked up your scribe. Now I do understand what it means. Again Awesome Job!

ReplyDeletewell 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..

ReplyDeleteGOOD JOB

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 .

ReplyDeletenice 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*

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