taupū

# Takenga mai:

pū - heap, stack, bundle

# Whakamārama:

Hei tohu i te whakareatanga tāruarua o te tētahi tau. Ka whakanōhia te pū ki te koko whakarunga i te taha matau o te tau, ā, ko tāna, he tohu i te maha o taua tau e whakareatia ana. Hei tauira:

Mō te pūrua: 32 = 3 x 3 = 9

Mō te pūtoru: 53 = 5 x 5 x 5 = 125

Mō te pūwhā: 24 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2= 16

# Tauira kōrero:

Ko te 16 te pūrua o te 4.
Pūtorutia te 2, ka 8.
He aha te pūtoru o te rua?

# Whakamārama atu anō:

E toru ngā whakahuatanga o te taupū. Hei tauira, ko te 24 = 16:

• Pūwhātia te rua, ka tekau mā ono.
• Ko te tekau mā ono te pūwhā o te rua.
• E rua ki te pūwhā, ka tekau mā ono.

Kia mataara:

I roto i te reo Ingarihi, ka whakamahia te kupu 'squared' hei kawe i te tikanga o te pūrua. Ka pōraruraru katoa te ākonga ina whakamahia te kupu 'tapawhā' (mō te squared) i roto i ngā akoranga reo Māori. Ka pōraruraru nā te mea e whakamahia ana te kupu 'tapawhā', engari he '2' kē te tohu.
