Our Factors and Multiples lesson plan defines factor and multiple and enables students to identify the factors and multiples of whole numbers. Students are asked to complete a fun activity using playing cards, which helps solidify the concept of prime and composite numbers, as well as leverages peer learning in pairs. Students are also asked to list the factor and several multiples of each in a given list of numbers in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define factor and multiple. The students will be able to find the factors and multiples of whole numbers.

    Love that it's free but...

    Maybe for more visual learners the explanation on how to find a factor could be better. Instead of saying multiply 4 by 1=4 2=8 3=12 and so on. They could spell it all out. 4x1=4 Making 1 & 4 factors 4x2=8 Making 2 also a factor 4x3=12 Making 3 a factor and so on. Also where do you stop? How do you know you've found all of the factors? This is missing from the lesson. Obviously the teacher can have their own methods when teaching the lesson but I think it could be a little more comprehensive.
