Free square root worksheets (PDF and html)

On this page, you'll find an unlimited supply of printable worksheets for square roots, including worksheets for square roots only (grade 7) or worksheets with square roots and other operations (grades 8-10). Options include the radicand range, limiting the square roots to perfect squares only, font size, workspace, PDF or html formats, and more.

If you want the answer to be a whole number, choose "perfect squares," which makes the radicand to be a perfect square (1, 4, 9, 16, 25, etc.). If you choose to allow non-perfect squares, the answer is typically an unending decimal that is rounded to a certain number of digits.

The option "Only simplify, no answers as decimals" forces the answer NOT to be given as a rounded decimal, but instead the answer is simplified if possible, and the square root is left in the answer if it cannot be simplified. For example, an answer of √28 will be given in simplified form as 2√7. This option is useful for algebra 1 and 2 courses.

You can also make worksheets that include one or two other operations, besides taking a square root.

Basic instructions for the worksheets

Each worksheet is randomly generated and thus unique. The answer key is automatically generated and is placed on the second page of the file.

You can generate the worksheets either in html or PDF format — both are easy to print. To get the PDF worksheet, simply push the button titled "Create PDF" or "Make PDF worksheet". To get the worksheet in html format, push the button "View in browser" or "Make html worksheet". This has the advantage that you can save the worksheet directly from your browser (choose File → Save) and then edit it in Word or other word processing program.

Sometimes the generated worksheet is not exactly what you want. Just try again! To get a different worksheet using the same options:

  • PDF format: come back to this page and push the button again.
  • Html format: simply refresh the worksheet page in your browser window.

Key to Algebra workbook series

Key to Algebra Workbooks

Key to Algebra offers a unique, proven way to introduce algebra to your students. New concepts are explained in simple language, and examples are easy to follow. Word problems relate algebra to familiar situations, helping students to understand abstract concepts. Students develop understanding by solving equations and inequalities intuitively before formal solutions are introduced. Students begin their study of algebra in Books 1-4 using only integers. Books 5-7 introduce rational numbers and expressions. Books 8-10 extend coverage to the real number system.
