Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Review: Factors - Section 3: Share/Discuss/Analyze Solution


This was a very needed review.  The students know how to find some of the factors, but not all of them.  By using the multiplication chart, it made it easier to find the factors up to 12, but factors over 12 were difficult for some of the students.  I reminded the students that multiplication and division are inverse operations.  If they wanted to know if a number is a factor, then they could divide by a number to see if it divides without a remainder.  By the end of the lesson, I was pleased that almost all of the students could pick a number and divide to see if it was a factor.
