Section 1.1 Square Numbers and Area Models
Quadrilateral = a 4 sided figure
Rectangle
Square
*Has 4 right (90o) angles
*Opposite Sides are parallel
* Has 4 right (90o) angles
*Opposite Sides are parallel
*All side lengths are the same
Area is the # of square units needed to cover a region.
Area of a rectangle or square can be found by multiplying
Length x Width
Base x Height
The units for area are cm2, m2, etc...
Investigation: Rectangles and Squares
Using grid paper, draw and label as many different rectangles as you can with
each area.
A) 4 square units
B) 6 square units
C) 8 square units
D) 9 square units
E) 12 square units
F) 15 square units
G) 16 square units
H) 20 square units
 Questions (Complete in your exercise)
1. For how many areas were you able to make a square? Which ones?
2. What is the side length of each square you made?
3. How is the side length of each square related to its area?
4. Find two areas greater than 20 square units, for which you can create a
square. How did you know you could make a square for these areas?
5. A) Copy and complete the table below listing all the factors for each area, in
order from least to greatest. The first two are done for you.
Factor – numbers that multiply to give a product. It is a number
that divides exactly into another number.

4 = 1 x 4, 2 x 2
6 = 1 x 6, 2 x 3
Factors of 4 are: 1, 2, 4
(we only write 2 once, even though it showed up twice)
Factors of 6 are: 1, 2, 3, 6

5. B) What do you notice about the factors for the areas that created
squares?
Numbers like 1, 4, 9, etc... are known as perfect square numbers.
Perfect square numbers are formed when we multiply a number by itself, or
"square" the number.
For example:
2x2=4
22 = 4
The square of 2 is 4
What is 5 squared?
________________
What is 7 to the power of 2?

5 is the BASE
2 is the EXPONENT
The entire 52 is called a POWER

On grid paper we are going to make a list of Perfect Squares from 1 to 12, including
a diagram.

Section 1.2 Squares and Square Roots
Finding the square root of a number is doing the opposite. It's finding the number
that multiplied by itself to give the result.
The symbol for square root is
 In your exercise book make a list of all the perfect square roots.
The dimensions or side length of the square can be viewed as the square root
What # multiplies by itself to give 49?
Notice in the diagram there are 49 little
squares (perfect square #) and the side
length is 7 (square root).
49  7  7  7
Example Questions
#1: List all the factors of 30 and arrange them least to greatest.
There are an EVEN number
of factors. No factor
occurred twice, therefore
30 is NOT a perfect square
#2:
List all the factors of 64 to show it is a perfect square.
 Complete Pages 15 - 16
#'s 5, 6, 7abc, 11, 13abcdef, 14,

There is an ODD number of
factors. Since 8 occurred
twice, 64 is a perfect square
and the square root of 64 is
8 (the middle factor when
factors are arranged from
least to greatest).

Finding the Square Roots of Bigger Numbers
Remember

What if
900 ?
What # multiplied by itself gives 900?
Think Factor Tree
900
9  100
*Hint: When the number ends with two zeros divide by 100 first
*keep dividing until you notice two equal groups of numbers
3  3  10  10
(3  10)(3  10)
(30)(30)
So
*To get the square root, multiply one group of numbers
900  30

400
Lets’ find
B)
14400
C)

576
We must use another method to find this square root, called prime factorization
When using prime factorization just keep dividing the number by a prime number
until you notice two equal groups.
Prime number: a number whose only factors are one and itself. For example: 2, 3,
5, 7, etc....
HINTS



If the # is EVEN begin dividing by 2
If the # is ODD, begin dividing by 3
If the # ends in 5, begin dividing by 5

576
2  288
576 is even so start dividing by 2
2  2  144
2  2  12  12 we can make two equal groups
(2  12)(2  12)
(24)(24)
So 576  24

it’s NOT a perfect square number

Section 1.5 The Pythagorean Theorem
A right triangle is a triangle that contains one right (90o) angle.
The side opposite the right angle is called the hypotenuse. The hypotenuse is
always the longest side of a triangle. The other two sides are called legs.
hypotenuse
leg
leg
The Pythagorean Theorem
In a right triangle, the area of the square on the hypotenuse is equal to the
sum of the areas of the squares on the other two sides.
9 + 16 = 25
32 + 42 = 52
This is ALWAYS true for
right triangles

In General

Section 1.6 Exploring the Pythagorean Theorem
Given 3 side lengths we can determine if the triangle is right or not. Remember
that the hypotenuse (c) is always the longest side.
#1: Determine whether each triangle is a right triangle.
A) 6 – 7 – 9
longest side (hypotenuse)
So 6 ⨉ 6 = 36, 7 ⨉ 7 = 49 and 9 ⨉ 9 = 81
Since 36 + 49 = 75 and NOT 81, this does NOT form a right triangle.
B) 7-24-25
So 7 ⨉ 7 = 49, 24 ⨉ 24 = 576 and 25 ⨉ 25 = 625
Since 49 + 576 = 625, this does form a right triangle.
A set of whole numbers that satisfies the Pythagorean Theorem is called a
Pythagorean Triple. 7-24-25 is a Pythagorean Triple.
