Working with Squares and Square Roots

Students will need to know how to solve problems that include squares and square roots. Help students become comfortable with the keys they will need to use to perform these functions.

Square

The square key [Squareroot] is one of the most frequently used keys. To determine the square of a number, first enter the number, and then press the [Squareroot] key.

Square Root

Above the [Squareroot] sign is a square root sign [SquareRoot] in yellow. To compute a square root, first enter the number, and then press the [Shift] key followed by the [Squareroot] key. This engages the square root function.

Try out squares and square roots.
