Mental Maths – how to square any number between 11 and 19

Stage 1 – practice squaring with pen and paper, until you are confident (see video below)

Stage 2 – just jot the answers into the grid

Stage 3 – jot the grid and imagine the numbers

Stage 4 – do it all in your head

The video for that would be a bit boring!
