We're still having fun with factors and multiples in the classroom. We've been doing all hands-on and engaging activities - we haven't cracked open our textbooks once this unit. I've heard so many "math is SO fun" comments lately, it's put a permanent smile on my face during math time. I can't wait to see our results on our final assessment - hopefully this will all pay off!
I plan to shrink these down, print them off on regular paper, and laminate them so I can have some sets for my math centers (not looking forward to all that cutting, though).
OK - so this is how we used these numbers today. We started off by reviewing factors, prime factorization, and multiples on the SMARTboard. I set up a page with dice and a chart. We rolled a two-digit number and as a whole class, came up with the factors, prime factors and multiples.

I had taped a set of my Venn Diagram circles to the blackboard. I LOVE these circles - I use them for so many different purposes in the classroom. I've seen other teachers use hula hoops for large Venn Diagrams, but these are so handy! They're light enough to tape to a wall or black/white board, and they fold up for easy storage. I have a set of 15 so we can use them in small groups, too.
