Square Numbers and Square Roots

Students learn how to calculate square numbers and square roots.  They are taught to use visualisation, written methods and calculators.  Less able students are encouraged to use a timetable to support their learning and more able are challenged to demonstrate Lagrange's Theorem.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to calculate the first twelve square numbers using the timetable grid.
  • Most students should be able to calculate the square numbers and their roots up to 12.
  • Some students should be able to calculate the square of negative, decimals and fractions.
