Professor ElvisZap teaches you about adding consecutive odd numbers. You can learn this faster by drawing squares near the numbers themselves. If you are doing 2x2, draw 4 squares. They will be arranged in columns of two. For 9 you will draw 3 columns of 3. 16 are 4 columns of 4. 16 is also 1+3+5+7, which are all odd consecutive numbers. 25 are 5 columns of 5, but also 1+3+5+7+9. If you start counting 1 as the zeros odd number, then 3 as the first odd number, the nth odd number will be (2xN+1).
