Square Roots & Perfect Squares

A perfect square is the product of a whole number multiplied by itself
A square root of a number is a value that, when multiplied by itself, gives that number.

You can download my templates for these three notebooking pages here. The pages also include space for students to write the first 20 perfect squares and the square roots for the first 20 perfect squares.
