Lesson Plan: Applying Prime Factorization - Grade Six - Grade 06
Grade:06
Summary:In this lesson, students use the prime factorization of numbers to find the greatest common factor and least common multiple. Working in small groups, they solve problems using the greatest common factor and least common multiple. Communicating strategies and solutions through oral and written expression help students understand the concept.

Indicator: 2. Find and use the prime factorization of composite numbers. For example:
1 - Use the prime factorization to recognize the greatest common factor (GCF).
2 - Use the prime factorization to recognize the least common multiple (LCM).
3 - Apply the prime factorization to solve problems and explain solutions.
