Worksheet Overview

You should know your square numbers as:


1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36, 49, 64, 81, 100, 121, 144 ....


But you should also know how to write them as:


12, 22, 32, 42, 52, 62, 72, 82, 92, 102, 112, 122....


You should know your cube numbers as:


1, 8, 27, 64, 125, 216, 343, 512, 729, 1000, 1331, 1728 ....


But you should also know how to write them as:


13, 23, 33, 43, 53, 63, 73, 83, 93, 103, 113, 123....


The more you practise using them, the easier it will become to remember them. Although you might be able to use a calculator sometimes to work them out, it is always better to just know key number facts like these.


So, let's do a bit of practise with the following questions and see how many you can remember already!
