Michael's Square root post

12) While shopping online, Ji Hun finds a square rug with an area of 11m2 he needs to know if it will fit in his 4m x 5m bedroom.

a)Estimate the side length of the rug.

b)Check your estimate with a calculator.

112 = 3.316

c)Will the rug fit? Explain.

Yes the rug will fit in his room because, his room is 20m2 and the rug is roughly 13m2

6) What is an example of a whole number that has a square root between 9 and 10

10) Kai uses an entire can of paint on a square backdrop for he school play. The label on the can states that one can covers 27m2 of wall surface. Estimate the backdrop's side length, to one decimal place.

  2. Good Job Micheal :).
    I like your blog post but to make it better you should add a video.

  3. Hi Michael! First of all, I liked how you included pictures and your answers in your very well done blog post. I have a few suggestions you might want to consider though. Maybe you should bold some important key information or use different colour font. Maybe you could change the size of font too, just to make it more interesting. I liked how you circled in your answer in question 12, and even had nice images, but when you answer your questions, maybe you should explain it with more detail and maybe add more to what you are thinking? Like for example, maybe you should answer in steps for question 12 b), instead of just putting "112 = 3.316". But overall, you did a good job. Keep it up Michael! =)

  4. Great job Adisaz! I liked how you actually circled your answer so we'll know it right away. Also, I like how you made your own pictures clear and neat! I think you could've explain how you got the answers step by step. Also, you should make the font a little bit bigger than its original size so we'll notice it right away! Another thing is you should have bold or use different colours for some important key words or sentence. You can also put video or a game to help us learn more about it! OVERALL GOOD JOB.
