544: Discover the Basics  Squares, Roots, Exponents, 138 pages  $39.95 Teacher Edition, $24.95 Home Edition
Why do we call a number with a little exponent 2 next to it "squared?" What does a square root look like? To clarify such concepts, a picture is really worth a thousand words. In this case, the picture is the "SquareMaker," a graphic that makes the concepts comprehensible, visible, and establishes a sound basis for fluent recall and calculation. Students learn to add, subtract, multiply, and divide with squares, roots, and other exponents, and extend these concepts and skills to decimals, fractions, and negative exponents  all of which have pictures and graphics to make the concepts clear.
