Squares – Sept.9/10

spiegel2

For the Thursday and Friday math classes the students worked on a simple art project to help understand the mathematical concept of squares. We then discussed this concept (three squared = 3 x 3 = 9) and why the term “squared” is used to denote a number with an exponent of two.

Students then worked for a few minutes to memorize the squares of the numbers one through twelve.

Here is the square art we worked on in class. square art
