8th grade Math

Week 3 April 20 - April 26

Weekly Packet

Math Objectives: Students will be able to:

  • students are introduced to the notation for square roots and cube roots.


Square-: a positive or negative number multiplied by itself, like 2.2 • 2.2 = 2.22. Perfect square: an integer multiplied by itself, such as 5•5= 52 or -5•-5 = (-5)2, both equal 25.

Square Root (√) Examples: 5 is the square root of 25 ( 5 = 25−−√) because 5 •5 is 25, 5.2 is an estimate for the square root of 27 because 5.2 •5.2 is 27.04.

Cube Root ( √3) Examples: 5 is the cube root of 125 ( 5 = 125−−−√3) because 5•5•5 is 125, 10 is the cube root of 1000 ( 10 = ∛1000) because 10•10•10 is 1000.

Area of a square: is side • side. Written as A = s •s, which gets you to A = s2

Volume of a cube: is side • side • side. Written as V= s•s•s or V = s3
