It's square root day

Today - 3/3/09 - happens to be a square root day! It's because 3 is the square root of 9 (3 × 3 = 9). The previous square root day was 2/2/04. And then next one is 4/4/16.

An exercise for students: how many square root days are there in a century?
See Wikipedia for an answer..
