Math Curiosity: Primes and Squares

🔓 This is an unlocked sample! Byrdseed.TV is open for new memberships through January 19th, 2024. Join today!


Students will determine if all perfect squares can be written as the sum of two primes.

In this video, students will investigate a relationship between prime numbers and perfect squares. There is a pattern that perfect squares can be written as the sum of two primes:

  • 4 = 2 + 2
  • 9 = 7 + 2
  • 16 = 11 + 5 or 13 + 3
  • 100 = 97 + 3


The registration window closes on January 19th, 2024
