We have been doing lots of work on multiplication this term and we have just begun to investigate SQUARE NUMBERS. These are numbers like 16 where we multiply 4 X 4 and, if we drew it, it would create a square. We explored this with cubes first and decided if we could see any patterns. We were able to draw squares up to 12 X 12 to find all the square numbers. We also found that 0 was a square number but we couldn’t draw or make that one because 0 X 0 = 0!
