Square Numbers Worksheets

Square numbers are used to express numbers multiplied by themselves in a simple way.  This helps to make them more accessible when your child is first introduced to them when learning the maths curriculum. Our square numbers worksheets help children understand why we use square numbers, how to express them using the correct notation and help them start to learn some square numbers. Square numbers are denoted using a small 2 to the right of a number - for example, 3² is equivalent to 3 x 3 which equals 9. Our square number worksheets are a valuable resource that helps your child with other maths worksheets, including our multiplication worksheets, area worksheets and much more.
