Cubes

  1. 1. Cubes and Cube Roots
  2. 2. Objective: You will be able to determine if a number is a perfect cube and to find the cube root of a number that is a perfect cube.
  3. 3. PERFECT CUBES What does that mean?
  4. 4. Perfect Cubes and Cube Roots Squares and Cubes: Similarities - All sides congruent - All angles 90 degrees Differences: - Square is 2 dimensional - Cube is 3 dimensional that number’s square root.
  5. 5. Perfect Cubes and Cube Roots Remember A cube is a three dimensional prism with 6 square faces; so all sides are congruent and all angles are right angles.
  6. 6. Perfect Cubes and Cube Roots Is 8 a perfect cube? that number’s square root.
  7. 7. Perfect Cubes and Cube Roots that.
  8. 8. Perfect Cubes and Cube Roots that.
  9. 9. Perfect Cubes and Cube Roots 8 is a perfect cube and its cube root is 2
  10. 10. Perfect Cubes and Cube Roots Is 5 a perfect cube?
  11. 11. Perfect Cubes and Cube Roots Is 5 a perfect cube?
  12. 12. Perfect Cubes and Cube Roots Three Dimensions Perfect Cube Volume
  13. 13. Perfect Cubes and Cube Roots Perfect Cube: 8 Cube Root 2 Volume: 8 units3 Side Length: 2 units
  14. 14. Cubes and Cubic Roots 3 27 = 3 or 3 = 27 3 Notice that 27 objects can be arranged into a cube of 3 levels (high) of 3 rows and 3 columns.
  15. 15. Cube Root  3 cubed is 27, so the cube root of 27 is 3 3 27  The cube root of a number is ... ... a special value that when cubed gives the original number.  The cube root of 27 is ... ... 3, because when 3 is cubed you get 27.

  32. 32. Perfect Cubes and Cube Roots Practice Is 827 a perfect cube?
  33. 33. You Can Also Cube Negative Numbers  Have a look at this:  If you cube 5 you get 125: 5 × 5 × 5 = 125  If you cube -5 you get -125: -5 × -5 × -5 = -125  So the cube root of -125 is -5
  34. 34. Perfect Cubes  The Perfect Cubes are the cubes of the whole numbers: Perfect Cubes 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 etc 1 8 27 64 125 216 343 512 729 1000 1331 1728 2197 2744 3375  It is easy to work out the cube root of a perfect cube, but it is really hard to work out other cube roots. …
  35. 35. Conclusion: You can now determine if a number is a perfect cube and find the cube root of a number that is a perfect cube.
