Cube numbers at a glance


Cube numbers are the result when a number is multiplied by itself twice. For example, 5*5*5=125 so 125 is a cube number. The first five cube numbers are 1, 8, 27, 64 and 125. 


The cube root of a number is the number that you cube to get that number, so the cube root of 125 is 5. There is no easy way to find the cube root of a number, it is best to learn the first 5 cube numbers.


The cube of a negative number is negative e.g. -2 * -2 * -2 = -8 and so we can cube root negative numbers whereas we cannot square root negative numbers.


Looking forward, students can then progress to additional number worksheets, for example a percentage worksheet or a rounding worksheet.
