August 27th Complete quiz on division of fractions.
Warm up: What do you remember about prime and composite numbers. Give an example of each. Complete WS on prime and composite numbers.
Number Theory GONE WILD!
Factors “Fit” into Families
Multiples Multiply like Rabbits!
Compute fluently with multi-digit numbers and find common factors and multiples.
How will I show that I learned it?
Through finding the greatest common factor of two whole numbers less than 100.
Common factor: Factors shared by two or more whole numbers
Greatest Common Factor (GCF): The largest number that divides two or more numbers evenly.
Factors shared by two or more whole numbers
What is the largest of the common factors?
The greatest common factor, or GCF.
How do I find the GCF?
Using the list method or the ladder
How do I use the list method?
1. List all the factor pairs for those two numbers.
2. Circle the largest factor that they share.
List the GCF for 28 and 42
Factors of 28:
Factors of 42:
1, 2, 4, 7, 14, 28
1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 14, 21, 42
The GCF of 28 and 42 is 14.
How do I use the ladder method?
The GCF of 40 and 16 is 8
Use BOTH the list and ladder method in order to check your answers.
Factors of 32: 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32
Factors of 24: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24
GCF of 32 and 24
GCF of 54 and 36
Factors of 54: 1, 2, 3, 6, 9, 18, 27, 54
Factors of 36: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18, 36
Turn to a partner and discuss the following:
What is the GCF of two prime numbers? Explain.
Each prime number only has two factors, so they can ONLY share the number ONE.
How can you tell if a word problem requires you to use Greatest Common Factor?
You are probably being asked:
Do we have to split things into smaller sections?
Are we trying to figure out how many people we can invite?
Are we trying to arrange something into rows or groups?
