Square Practice Sheet is a simple and ready-to-use Excel Template that teaches a student to find squares of given whole numbers by practicing it.
Not only this, but the students can also check their learning curve by performing multiple tests. Usually, taking tests a tutor or parent needs to write numbers manually and give to the child. In addition to that, you also need to check the given answers.
But in this template, the manual task is transformed into an automated one by a random number generator. Just define the range and click on the button to generate new numbers.
Additionally, this template also contains a printable version for practicing and taking a test that can be given to students for practice.
What is a Square Number?
In mathematics, when a whole number is multiplied by itself, it is called a square number. The square of a given number is written as 3².
Children tend to learn squares from grade 5. The squares from numbers 1-12 are usually taught to children. This helps them to easily calculate the area of a square.
In simple terms, “n X n” is the representation of a square number, where “n” is any whole number.
Each multiplication table also consists of a square where the number is multiplied by the number itself. Like 1X1, 2X2, 3X3 and so on.
Why are they Called “Square Numbers”?
We all know that a square geometrical shape that has all sides equal. Similarly, to derive the square of a number, you need to multiply two same numbers which are equal.
Another interesting fact is that when you arrange a “square number” of circular or square objects in an array, they will form a perfect square. Arranging in an array means putting objects in row and columns with the same number of objects.
For example, take 4 pennies. 4 is the square of 2. Hence when you arrange them in array they will form a square ass shown below:
