## Factors: Math Games for Class and Play
A teacher or an knowledgeable adult may make students form a circle and ask them questions in turns, and whoever gets the answer wrong leaves the circle. The winner is the last student in the circle. A teacher or an knowledgeable adult may make students form two or more
teams of equal members and ask questions in turns. When a team gets
it right,
The game is best for teachers and parents who have explained to their children that the factors of a number are all the possible numbers you can multiply amongst themselves to get that number and divide that number by. For instance, what is the factor of 60? I will have to divide 60 by the smallest possible number before I can move up to the next possible number until the numbers start to repeat themselves during the process. I must start with 1 though because every number has 1 as the smallest factor that can divide any number. 60/1 = 60 (1 is the smallest number that can divide 60) 60/2 = 30 (2 is the next smallest number that can divide 60) 60/3 = 20 (3 is the next smallest number that can divide 60) 60/4 = 15 (4 is the next smallest number that can divide 60) 60/5 = 12 (5 is the next smallest number that can divide 60) 60/ (6 is the next smallest numberr that can divide
60)1060/ (10 is the next smallest number that can divide
60; 6but Oops!!!, I see 6 and 10 repeating themselves as denominator and
answer)
so the factors of 60 =
Find the factors of 8, 12, 15, 17, 20, 50, 66, 100 etc. Factors of a prime numbers will always be 1 and itself because nothing can divide it. |
