In order to yield a value that is less than 1, the denominator has to be greater than the numerator.

This is the case if -1<z<1, because the square of a number between -1 and 1 is smaller than the original number.

Both statement are needed in order to assure that z is between -1 and 1.

Combined:

-1<z<1

square of a number less than 1 and greater than 0 (because its not required to consider -ve values here) is always less than that number. So z^2/[z] is always less than 1.
