SQUARE ROOTS PRESENTED BY MR. LAWS 8 TH GRADE MATH, JCMS

GOAL/OBJECTIVE • 8. EE. 2 –Use square and cube roots symbols to represent solutions to equations of the form x 2=p and x 3=p, where p is a positive rational number. • Evaluate square roots of small perfect squares and cube roots of small perfect cubes. Know that is irrational.

ESSENTIAL QUESTION(S): •

WHAT IS A SQUARE ROOT? index Radical sign Square Root 16 = 4 Radicand • Radical sign indicates a root. • Radicand is the number under the radical sign. • Index displays the root of an expression. 42 = 16 1. The square root of a number is a number when multiplied by itself two times equals the radicand.

SQUARE ROOTS 2. The inverse operation of squaring is finding the square root. 3. A square root of a number is any number that can be multiplied by itself to get the original number. • For example: 3 is the square root of 9 because 3 x 3 = 9 • Also, the square root of 9 can be -3 because (-3) x (-3) = Example 9: Positive Square Root Negative Square Root

WHAT ARE PERFECT SQUARES? 4. Perfect Squares are square roots when multiplied by itself 2 times will equal an integer(number). 5. Perfect Squares are rational numbers. 6. There are 20 perfect squares that you need to know.
