Scribe Post

We started off our class by getting our quizzes back. Mr. H. then showed us how to get a square root as a fraction using a short cut. The short cut was . . .


After that, we had to make our corrections. After we made corrections we had another quiz.

Here are the questions and answers. . .

1)What is a square root ?

2)Estimate the square root of 31 using the perfect square chart. NO FRACTIONS !


3)Estimate the square root of 38 using fractions.


After the quiz, Mr. H put up three square root word problems. The questions are :

A) Surinam, in South America, is roughly shaped like a square. It covers an area of about 100 489 km². Find the length of each side of Surinam.

B) A warehouse has an area of 5808m². It is divided into 12 equal square sections. Find the dimensions of each section.

C) Estimate the following square roots using fractions.
