Storyboard Text

• I'm so frustrated, mom! My teacher was reviewing square roots and cube roots today and asked me to answer a question, but I totally forgot how to do it, so I just sat there and stuttered until the end of class. I'm afraid my teacher will ask again tomorrow.
• ﻿It's okay honey, I can always explain it to you. I was good at math back in the day. ﻿
• What is the square root of 121?﻿
• The square root of 121 would be 11, because 11 multiplied by itself would be 121.﻿
• ﻿﻿Give me a square root problem for an example.
• I get it! When you are trying to find the square root of a number,﻿ you find the number that when multiplied by itself you get the number you are trying to square.
• Correct!﻿ It wasn't so hard now, was it?
• ﻿Wait! What about cube roots?!﻿
• ﻿It's okay sweetie. Cube roots are quite similar to square roots, except when you are trying to find the cube root of a number you try and find the number that when multiplied by itself three times it will give you the number you are trying to cube.
