Be sure to take turns going first. Find moves that will help you score more points than your partner. Be sure to write down strategies or patterns you use or find. Answer the Discussion Questions.**Player 1 chose 24 to earn 24 points.**Player 2 finds 1, 2, 3, ,4, 6, 8, 12 and earns 36 points. Player 2 chose 28 to earn 28 points. Player 1 finds 7 and 14 are the only available factors and earns 21 points.**Discussion Questions**1. Make a table listing all the possible first moves, proper factors, your score and your partner's score. Here's an example: 2. What number is the best first move? Why? 3. Choosing what number as your first move would make you lose your next turn? Why? 4. What is the worst first move other than the number you chose in Question 3? more questions**5. On your table, circle all the first moves that only**allow your partner to score one point. These numbers have a special name. What are these numbers called? Are all these numbers good first moves? Explain. 6. On your table, draw a triangle around all the first moves that allow your partner to score more than one point. These numbers also have a special name. What are these numbers called? Are these numbers good first moves? Explain.**Activity**Party Favors! You are planning a party and want to give your guests party favors. You have 24 chocolate bars and 36 lollipops. Discussion Questions What is the greatest number of party favors you can make if each bag must have exactly the same number of chocolate bars and exactly the same number of lollipops? You do not want any candy left over. Explain. Could you make a different number of party favors so that the candy is shared equally? If so, describe each possibility. Which possibility allows you to invite the greatest number of guests? Why? Uh-oh! Your little brother ate 6 of your lollipops. Now what is the greatest number of party favors you can make so that the candy is shared equally?**Greatest Common Factor**We can use prime factorization to find the greatest common factor (GCF). 1. Factor the given numbers into primes. 2. Circle the factors that are common. 3. Multiply the common factors together to find the greatest common factor.**Use prime factorization to find the greatest common factor**of 12 and 16. 12 16 3 4 4 4 3 2 2 2 2 2 2 12 = 2 x 2 x 3 16 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 X The Greatest Common Factor is 2 x 2 = 4**Another way to find Prime Factorization...**Use prime factorization to find the greatest common factor of 12 and 16. 2 16 12 2 2 8 X 6 2 2 4 3 3 2 2 1 1 12 = 2 x 2 x 3 16 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 The Greatest Common Factor is 2 x 2 = 4**Use prime factorization to find the greatest common factor**of 36 and 90. 36 90 6 6 9 10 2 3 2 3 3 3 2 5 36 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 90 = 2 x 3 x 3 x 5 x GCF is 2 x 3 x 3 = 18**Use prime factorization to find the greatest common factor**of 36 and 90. 2 36 90 2 2 18 X 45 3 9 3 15 3 3 3 5 5 1 1 36 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 90 = 2 x 3 x 3 x 5 GCF is 2 x 3 x 3 = 18**Use prime factorization to find the greatest common factor**of 60 and 72. 60 72 6 10 6 12 2 3 2 5 2 3 3 4 2 3 2 5 2 3 3 2 2 60 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 5 72 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 X GCF is 2 x 2 x 3 = 12**Use prime factorization to find the greatest common factor**of 60 and 72. 60 72 2 2 2 30 36 2 X 15 18 3 2 5 5 3 9 1 3 3 1 72 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 60 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 5 GCF is 2 x 2 x 3 = 12**1**Find the GCF of 18 and 44.**3**Find the GCF of 55 and 110.**4**Find the GCF of 52 and 78.**5**Find the GCF of 72 and 75.**Relatively Prime:**Twoor more numbers are relatively prime if their greatest common factor is 1. Example: 15 and 32 are relatively prime because their GCF is 1. Name two numbers that are relatively prime.**6**7 and 35 are not relatively prime.

Is his thinking accurate? What mathematical relationship is he missing? 2. How many hot dogs came in a pack? Buns? 3. How many "superfluous" buns did George Banks remove from each package? How many packages did he do this to? 4. How many buns did he want to buy? Was his thinking correct? Did he end up with 24 hot dog buns? 5. Was there a more logical way for him to do this? What was he missing? 6. What is the significance of the number 24?**A multiple of a whole number is the product of the number**and any nonzero whole number. A multiple that is shared by two or more numbers is a common multiple. Multiples of 6: 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48, ... Multiples of 14: 14, 28, 42, 56, 70, 84,... The least of the common multiples of two or more numbers is the least common multiple (LCM). The LCM of 6 and 14 is 42.**There are 2 ways to find the LCM:**List the multiples of each number until you find the first one they have in common. Write the prime factorization of each number. Multiply all factors together. Use common factors only once (in other words, use the highest exponent for a repeated factor).**EXAMPLE: 6 and 8**Multiples of 6: 6, 12, 18, 24, 30 Multiples of 8: 8, 16, 24 LCM = 24 Prime Factorization: 6 8 2 3 2 4 2 2 2 2 3 23 LCM: 23 3 = 8 3 = 24**Find the least common multiple of 18 and 24.**Multiples of 18: 18, 36, 54, 72, ...

Are we trying to figure out how many people we can invite? Are we trying to arrange something into rows or groups?**LCM Problems**Do we have an event that is or will be repeating over and over? Will we have to purchase or get multiple items in order to have enough? Are we trying to figure out when something will happen again at the same time?
