§3.2 Square roots
What is a square root?
Finding the square root is the inverse of squaring
(In the same way that dividing is the inverse of multiplying and  subtracting is the inverse of adding)

Slide 3 - Slide

§3.2 Square roots
Why is it called the square root?
In year 3 you will learn about the cube root, fourth root, fifth root, etc. They are the inverse of raising a number to the third power, fourth power, fifth power, etc.

Slide 4 - Slide

§3.2 Square roots
Sometimes the square root is written as           , but           is more common.
Anything that is written under the "tail" of the square root sign should be treated as if it is written between brackets, so should be calculated before you find the square root.

Slide 11 - Quiz

§3.2 Square roots
Exact answers and approximations
If you calculate some square roots, you get a whole number, a fraction or a finite decimal number:

If you calculate some square roots, you get a number with infinite decimals, that cannot be written as a fraction:
In this case, we say that        is an exact number, and we say 2.24 is an approximation accurate to two decimal places (2.236 is an approximation accurate to three decimal places, etc).
