#### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will look at square numbers and cube numbers.

Let us first look at square numbers. A square number is the answer to a number multiplied by itself.

Example

5² this reads 5 squared which means 5 x 5

We know that 5 x 5 = 25.

So, 25 is a square number.

Below are the first ten square numbers.

A cube number is the answer to a number multiplied by itself three times.

Example

4³ This reads 4 cubed which means 4 x 4 x 4.

We know that 4 x 4 x 4 = 64.

So, 64 is a cube number.

Below are the first ten cube numbers.
