Welcome to my math blog! The purpose of this blog is to help you stay informed about our learning and experiences that have taken place during our math class. I have also included links your child (and you) may want to use in order to supplement math learning in 5th grade.

### Factors/Multiples/Prime/Composite: Day C

Rotations - Day C

Our lesson frame was the same as yesterday, but the groups worked on different activities:

• We will work on activities that reinforce our understanding of multiples, factors, prime, and composite.
• I will name multiples, find factors, and determine if a number is prime or composite.

Groups 1 & 4

Today, I decided that I wanted to see how they did working

with the task cards.  So, we worked through the problems

together, as it allowed me to discover that there were

students who were still having issues remembering the

difference between factors and multiples.

With the short amount of time we had left, we worked with

determining if a number was prime or composite.  This time,

we focused on working with divisibility rules.

Group 2

Looking for something a little different, I Googled online

games that involved working with factors.  There are all

kinds available and the kids enjoyed having an opportunity

to "play."

Group 3

This group revisited changing Roman Numerals into Arabic

numbers.  They really enjoyed the challenge and the "new-

ness" of this concept!

Exit Ticket

The exit ticket was very straightforward.  I asked the kids to

find all of the factors of 48 using their Divisibility Rules.
