What Makes a Square Number a Square Number?

In maths this morning, we were investigating square numbers and their factors. However, before we began investigating, we explored why square numbers are called square numbers. We used multilink to represent various square numbers. The children worked hard and discovered that square numbers have an odd number of factors, whereas other numbers have an even number of factors. Super reasoning and problem solving, Year 5!
