### Scribe 6 Questions 24 and 27

Question 24:

A) What are the next three triangular numbers?

-The next three triangular numbers are 10, 15 and 21. In the first triangle pattern, the number of triangles was 1. The second pattern the number of triangles was 3. It went up by 2. The next triangle pattern had 6 triangles in it, and it went up by 3 from the last pattern. I could only assume that the number of triangles went up one more than what it did last time, so 6+4=10. Then, 10+5=15, and so on.

B) Add together any two consecutive triangle numbers. What do you notice about the sums?

-They are all perfect squares. Example: 3+6=9. The square root of 9 is 3. 1+3=4. The square root of 4 is 2.

Question 27:

A)
Determine the square root of each number:

-Square root of 6400=80. Square root of 640 000=800. Square root of 64 000 000=8000.

B) Describe a quick method for determining mentally the square root of each number in part a).

-If the square root of 6400=80, 640 000 has 2 more 0's than 6400. So you add another 0 to the square root answer. For 64 000 000, add another 0. Basically, add one more 0 to the square root for ever 2 0's in the number.

C) Explain why this method does not work for evaluating the square root of 640

-It doesn't work because 640 is not a perfect square.

D) Use your method in part b) to evaluate the square root of 640 000 000 000. Explain how you determined the answer.

-640 000 000 000 has 10 0's. 10/2=5. So, the square root of 640 000 000 000 is 8 with 5 0's, or 800000.

Question 18:

Square have equal sides, so side x side= area. 14x14=196 or 14 squared equals 196.

Question 20:
a)Length x Width= Area, 9m x 4m= 36m squared

b)Length of side length= 6 because area of rectangle and square are equal. So what number squared gets 36? That's right 6 squared.

Question 22:
a)630m by 630m, 630 squared equals 396 600m squared

b)395 641m squared because 629 squared equals 395 641

### Shane's Math Profile

Hi, my name is Ann Shane but you can call me Shane.
I take grade 8 math. If someone asked me "Do you like math?",
I would say that I liked it so much. I'm not really the strongest
student in math but I enjoy trying to figure out the answers to
problems and learning new strategies in math. One of the best
things that I've ever done in a math class was doing strategies and technics.

Im kind of new here in Sargent Park but I really enjoy studying
here. Something I could do this year to not struggle so much would
be to practice the things that I need to improve on more.

It is grade 8 now. This year I will try my best to finish all of the work
that is assigned to me. I will also try to ask more questions if I don't
understand something. I am looking forward to learn some new
strategies to solve math problems this year.

On the computer, this year I would like to be able to play some math
games to help me understand the unit more. I dont have any post before
cause im new soo yeah! I will try my best to make my post better.

### John's Math Profile

Hi my name is John. I am a math student in grade 8. My favorite subject is Math. I may not the smartest student in 8-14 but I'm the 5th hardworking student in class especially in math cause i love to use the numbers in many different ways to solve problems or questions.

In Grade 6 I really like the word problems. I remember one time the answer for the question is in the question itself. This year ill try my best to past the grade 8 Math.

Now in Grade 8. Ill try to finish all the homework and school work even if it is hard to past and advance to Grade 9.

### Ysabelle's Math Profile

Hi, my name is Ysabelle. I am a Math student in grade 8. If you're gonna ask me if I like Math, I would answer- yes, a little bit. I love Math because it helps me a lot, in many ways. I'm not very good at it but I really love solving Math problems. It develops my skills and I think makes my mind sharper. The best thing I ever did in math class was when we factored polynomials when I was in first year high school(it's like grade 7 here in Canada). Factoring polynomials, for me was really fun.

In grade 7, the best unit I studied was the unit on Cartesian Planes. I still remember how to find slopes then graph them. I really liked this unit because I really had so much fun graphing and solving problems involving slopes. I really did well in this unit because it really was pretty easy. The unit that made me struggle was the unit on special products and binomial expansion. I really got confused in this unit. I had a very hard time expanding binomials. It will really take a lot of time for me to expand binomials. I really hate to expand binomials especially when they're in the seventh power or more. I also had a hard time in special products because I got confused in many things. Too many to mention. I will study very well this year so I don't have to struggle anymore.

This year,in grade 8, I will study very well and developed my Math skills to be a successful math student. I will also do my homework. I will be a responsible student and do the things I have to do. I want to learn more about Algebra this year.

### Ivory's Math Profile

My name is Ivory and I am in grade 8 math. I like math because it is subject that doesn't use a lot of words and spelling and I personally love numbers. The best thing that I did in math was getting full marks on a test I didn't even study for.

Last year in grade 7, I liked probability and B.E.D.M.A.S. I also found that the coordinate grid was really easy as well. I would do really well on everything unless I didn't listen very well and that was mostly in the third term when I broke my leg.

This year I will work to listen harder and accually study for tests. I need to do better on the blog with comments and do a scribe post. I also need to do all my homework and stay organized.

Determine the square root of a perfect square.

A Square Number is the product of the same two number.
Example : 3 x 3 = 9, so 9 is a square number

A square number is also known as a perfect square.

Perfect Squares are
1, 4, 9, 16 and etc...

Don't forget today homework!

Start a number line on the other crease on
the bottom and highlight the perfect square numbers.

### Estimatating using perfect squares, prime factorization and number line

Homework from yesterday
- Estimating using perfect squares

200- in between the perfect squares 196 and 225.
- 225 is bigger than 200 so that number won't work
- so that leaves us with 196 aka 14x14
- If 196 is 14x14 that means that 200 will be 14._x14._=200 because we know that 225 which
Is to big being 15x15 or the next highest perfect square.

37-in between perfect squares 36 and 49
- 49 is bigger than 37 so it won't work
- which leaves us with 36 aka 6x6
- so if 36 is 6x6 that means that 37 will be 6._x6._=37 because we know that 37 which
to big being 7x7 or the next highest perfect square

850- in between perfect squares 841 and 900
- 900 is bigger than 850 so it won't work
- which leaves us with 841 aka 29x29
- so if 841 is 29x29 that means that 850 will be 29._x29._=850 because we know that 900 is
to big being 30x30 or the next highest perfect square

77 - in between perfect squares 64 and 81
- 81 is bigger than 77 so it won't work
- which leaves us with 64 aka 7x7
- so if 64 is 7x7 that means that 77 will be 7._x7._=77 because we know that 81 is
to big being 8x8 or the next highest perfect square

Number Line

-1-25
-Different colours for the pefect squares
-show what x what = the number your trying to get to

Im sorry my computer won't let me put pictures or vidoes.

so heres a link for a Prime Factorization video.
and another for prime factorization which is a website which has pictures
and then here is my actual link (make sure to turn off the volume if the play the game)

### Square Root

Square Root is an inverse of squaring:
The square root of 25 is SxS or what times itself has a product of 25. 5x5=25

Finding the square root using a calculator:

We also learned how to find the square root of a number. From what I've learned so far the only real way to get the square root of a number is to use your trusty old calculator. Of course, each calculator is different, so you may have to punch in a few things before you get the answer.

Let's take the number 3. I know what you're thinking, "but, it's impossible to make a square out of that!" If you remember from last class, it is possible, just a lot less simple to find. So, that's where square root comes in.

Okay then, now punch in the square root function on your calculator and you should get: 1.414213562. Well, that's not a nice number to work with, so let's just take the numbers up to the thousandths place, no rounding please. So, now we should have 1.41.
1.41 x 1.41=1.9881
Not exactly a perfect square, but it's close.

Estimating the square root using fractions:

Remember the number line we made for homework? That would come in handy right about now.

As you can see the space between the two perfect squares is divided into 3. So then we will be using 3 as the denominator for the following fractions. It won't be as exact as the calculator, but it's close.
1: 1
2: 1 1/3
3: 1 2/3
4: 1 3/3 or 2
See how that works? Remember, we won't just use 3 as the denominator. For example the next fraction should be out of 5, since the space between the 2nd perfect square and the 3rd perfect square is divided into 5.

Estimating the square root using perfect squares:

Either the number line or the chart we did would be useful for this activity.

First let's take a number like, 439, and find the square root. Now don't panic, it's a lot easier than you think.
Find on the chart 2 numbers where 439 falls between. It should be 400 and 441.
Next we look on our chart to find the square root or side lengths of both numbers, which would be, 20 and 21. This means the square root of 439 would lie between 20 and 21.
The number can't be 20 or 21 so it should be 1 of those two numbers and a decimal. But which number should be used? 20 of course! If you used 21 and a decimal it would no longer be a number in between the two.
So the answer is 20.___ You don't need the rest, this is an estimation after all.

Now that you know this the homework shouldn't be much of a problem.

Homework:

Use fractions to estimate the square roots of 1-25.
Use perfect squares to estimate the square roots of 200, 37, 850, and 77.

If you're still having trouble with this, here is a site I think you should look at. This probably isn't the best site out there, so leave links to other sites in the comments section and I'll be sure to change it.
Also, here is a video. Also not the best video, so a link or two to another one would be just great.

### Perfect Squares

1x1, 2x2 and 3x3 are Perfect Squares.
OR
, and are Perfect Squares

Any number can be a square.
Example: 20
You have to find out the square root of 20.
You can use your calculator and punch in √(square root) 20, or 20 if there is an error.
20=4.472135955. OR 4.47.

HOMEWORK: Tell me what you know about squares.
Find out what you know about these squares: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9]

Part one:
The original video is Banana sign, we changed our video allot so it is not exactly like the original, we didn't even use sign language in it, so we used the sesame street video as our inspiration. What happens in the video is that Samara is trying to tell Telly she wants a Banana in sign language, but Telly doesn't understand her until the end of the video.

### Angelo's Math Profile

Hi, my name is Angelo and I have grade eight math. I like math because it's my best subject. The best thing that I ever did in math class is playing a game like spinning a spinner to find the experimental probability.

Last year when I was a grade seven, the best unit I studied is integers because it's easy and I did good on quiz and test. The unit that made me struggle is fractions because I get sometimes confused on changing it to a mix number or to improper fraction.

To not struggle much, I need to not talk muchI want to be a better math student. To do this I think I need to be a more responsible by asking questions to my classmates or teacher if I don't understand something. Also I need to pay more attention to what the teacher says and not to talk much about non related to the subject.

This year I would like to learn about algebra. In grade seven I learn how to create a blog. My favorite blog is about the best measure of central tendency. I picked this because I have a video and picture. I also picked this cause I think it's my best blog last year. The blogging help me become a better student because when I forgot the homework's page I can look at the blog and check it. This year I like to play a math game or a math problem in a computer because it helps me alot when I'm doing extra work.
