A square has an area of 64 cm2 Find the perimeter. What number when multiplied by itself will give 64? 8 x 8 = 64 So the square has a side length of 8cm. Perimeter is the distance around: = 32 64 cm2

What is a Perfect Square? Part 1
Any rational number that is the square of another rational number. In other words, the square root of a perfect square is a whole number. Perfect Square Square Root 1 √1 = 1 4 √4 = 2 9 √9 = 3 16 √16 = 4 25 √25 = 5

Perfect Squares Use a calculator to determine if the following are perfect squares Perfect Square? Square Root Per. Square? √121 = Y/N √169 = Y/N √99 = Y/N √50 = Y/N

Perfect Squares - KEY Use a calculator to determine if the following are perfect squares Perfect Square? Square Root Per. Square? √121 = 11 Y/N √169 = 13 Y/N √99 = 9.95 Y/N √50 = 7.07 Y/N

What is a Perfect Square? Part 2
Another way to look at it. If we can find a division sentence for a number so that the quotient is equal to the divisor, the number is a square number. 16 ÷ 4 = 4 Dividend divisor quotient

Quiz #1 Ch 1 Key 1) List the first 12 perfect squares. 1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36, 49, 64, 81, 100, 121, ) If a square has a side length of 5cm, what is the area? 25cm2 3) Find the side length of a square with an area of 81 cm2. 9cm

1.2 Squares and Roots Squaring and taking the square root are inverse operations. That is they undo each other. 42 = 16 √16 = √4x4 = 4

Factors 1-30 What do you notice about all the yellow columns?
They all have an odd number of factors! They are perfect squares! The middle factor is the square root of the perfect square!

What is a perfect square? – PART 3
A perfect square will have its factor appear twice. Ex: 36 ÷ 1 = 36 1 and 36 are factors of ÷ 2 = 18 2 and 18 are factors of ÷ 3 = 12 3 and 12 are factors of ÷ 4 = 9 4 and 9 are factors of ÷ 6 = 6 6 is a factor that occurs twice Factors of 36 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18, 36 The square root of 36 is 6 because it appears twice. It is also the middle factor when they are listed in ascending order!

What is a Perfect Square – Part 4
Is 136 a perfect square? Perfect squares have an odd number of factors. List the factors. 1 x 136 = x 68 = x 34 = x 17 = 136 There are 8 factors in 136. Therefore, 136 is not a perfect square because perfect squares have an odd number of factors.

1.3 Measuring Line Segments – Inside out.

1.3 Inside Out The Steps The Formula A = l2 + 4 [(b)(h)/2]
You can find the length of a line segment AB on a grid by constructing a square on the segment. The length of AB is the square root of the area of the square. Step 1 – Make a square around the line segment Step 2 – Cut the square into 4 congruent triangles and a smaller square. Step 3 – Calculate the area of the triangle A = bh/2 A = (3)(2)/2 A = 3 units The area of one triangle is 3 units, so all triangles would be 4(3) = 12 units Step 4 Calculate the are of a small square A = L x L = A = 1 x 1 = 1 unit Step 5 Add the area of the squares and triangles together = 13 so the line segment is the square root of 13 The Formula A = l2 + 4 [(b)(h)/2]

1.3 Measuring Line Segments – Outside In

1.3 Outside In The Steps The Formula A = l2 - 4 [(b)(h)/2]
You can find the length of a line segment AB on a grid by constructing a square on the segment. The length of AB is the square root of the area of the square. Step 1 – Make a square around the line segment Step 2 – Draw a larger square around the line segment square. Step 3 – Calculate the area of the outside square = l2 = 9 x 9 = 81 Step 4 – Calculate the area of the triangles (remember there are 4) 4 [(b)(h)/2] = 4 [(4)(5)/2] = 40 Step 5 Subtract the area of the triangles from the square. 81 – 40 = 41 so the line segment is the square root of 41 The Formula A = l2 - 4 [(b)(h)/2]

Practice Time Complete the 7 questions below. You will be given a hard copy (extra practice 1.3). You will need graph paper for #4. Use inside-out for # 3 and outside-in for #4.

1.4 Estimating Square Roots
Here is one way to estimate the value of the square root of a number that is not a perfect square. For example: Find √20 Step 1: Is it a perfect square? No Step 2: If it isn’t, sandwich it between 2 perfect squares. √16 < √20 < √25 4 < √20 < √20 is closer to 4 than 5 Now we use guess and check. 4.6 x 4.6 = 21.16 4.5 x 4.5 = 20.25 4.47x 4.47 = 19.98 Therefore the √20 = approximately 4.47 Bingo, this one is closest!!!!

Another way to estimate √20

Bingo, this one is closest!!!!
Find √27 Step 1: Is it a perfect square? No Step 2: If it isn’t, sandwich it between 2 perfect squares. √25 < √27 < √36 5 < √27 < √27 is closer to 5 than 6 Now we use guess and check. 5.2 x 5.2 = 27.04 5.19 x 5.19 = 26.93 Therefore the √27 = approximately 5.2 Bingo, this one is closest!!!!

Bingo, this one is closest!!!!
Find √105 Step 1: Is it a perfect square? No Step 2: If it isn’t, sandwich it between 2 perfect squares. √100< √105 < √121 10 < √105 < √105 is closer to 10 than 11 Now we use guess and check. 10.2 x 10.2 = 10.25 x = 10.24 x = Therefore the √105 = approximately 10.25 Bingo, this one is closest!!!!

Place each of the following square roots on the number line below.
√5, √52, and √89 √4< √5 < √9 2 < √5 < 3 - √5 is closer to 2 than 3 2.2 x 2.2 = 4.84 2.25x2.25 = 5.063 2.24 x 2.24 = 5.017 √5= approximately 2.24 √49 < √52 < √64 - √52 is closer to 7 than 8 7.2 x 7.2 = 51.8 7.25 x 7.25 = 52.56 7.22 x 7.22 = 52.12 7.21 x 7.21 = 51.98 √52= approximately 7.21 √81 < √89 < √ √83 is closer to 9 than 10 9.4 x 9.4 = 88.36 9.45 x 9.45 = 89.30 9.43 x 9.43 = 9.44 x = 89.12 √89= approximately 9.43 Bingo, this one is closest!!!! Bingo, this one is closest!!!! Bingo, this one is closest!!!! √5 √52 √89

1.5 The Pythagorean Theorem

In any right triangle, the area of the square whose side is the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the areas of the squares whose sides are the two legs

Watch This Video!

Pythagorus Side A and side B are always the legs and they are “attached” to the right angle. Side C is always across from the right angle. It is always longer than side A or side B. If you add the squares of side A and B, it will = the square of side C

Some Questions Find the hypotenuse. a2 + b2 = c = c = c2 85 = c2 √85 = √c = c We can now say that 6, 7, and 9.22 are not Pythagorean triplets because one is not a whole number

Some Questions Find the hypotenuse. a2 + b2 = c = c = c2 100 = c2 √100 = √c2 10 = c We can now say that 6, 8, 10 are Pythagorean triplets

Some Questions Find the leg “x”. We will make x – a. a2 + b2 = c2 a = 182 a = 324 a = a2 = 203 √a2 = √203 a = We can now say that 11, 14.24, and 18 are not Pythagorean triplets, because one is not a whole number.

Exploring the Pythagorean Theorem
1.6 Exploring the Pythagorean Theorem

For each triangle below, add up the 2 areas of the squares of the legs in the 2nd column, and include the area of the square of the hypotenuse in the third column. Do you see any patterns?

Use Pythagoras to determine if the triangle below is a right triangle.
a2 + b2 = c2 = ? = 81 ? ≠ 81 This triangle is not a right triangle!

Use Pythagoras to determine if the triangle below is a right triangle.
a2 + b2 = c2 = ? = 625 ? 625 = 625 This triangle is a right triangle! We can now say that 7, 24, and 25 are Pythagorean triplets.

What is a Pythagorean Triplet?
It is a set of WHOLE numbers that satisfy the Pythagorean theorem. For example, this triangles’ sides (3, 4, 5) satisfy the Pythagorean theorem and are therefore triplets. This is because they are all whole numbers and = 52

What is a Pythagorean Triplet?
This triangles’ sides (6, 8, 11) do not satisfy the Pythagorean theorem and are not therefore triplets. Although they are all whole numbers, they are not triplets because ≠ 112

112 + 14.242 = 182 14.24 Pythagorean Triplets
This triangles’ sides are not Pythagorean triplets because one of the sides is not a whole number eventhough: = 182 14.24

Your Turn! In one minute, write down as many Pythagorean triplets as you can where c (the hypotenuse) is less than 100. Here are a few. ( 3 , 4 , 5 ) ( 5, 12, 13) ( 7, 24, 25) ( 8, 15, 17) ( 9, 40, 41) (11, 60, 61) (12, 35, 37) (13, 84, 85) (16, 63, 65) (16, 30 34) (20, 21, 29) (15, 20, 25) (28, 45, 53) (33, 56, 65) (36, 77, 85) (39, 80, 89) (48, 55, 73) (65, 72, 97)
