Differentiate your instruction by grouping your students by their needs and choose the most effective activity for each group
Challenge Your Students
Notice that students may make factor or multiple lists that are incomplete or only identify one set of factors for a given number.
Students many times confuse when the greatest (factor)/least (multiple) numbers on their lists are needed.
Have students work together to correct each other’s work
