Multiples and Factors - Presentation

Multiples and Factors - Presentation
View Curriculum Codes   

This comprehensive Multiples and Factors presentation has been created to guide students through what multiples and factors are. It also explores Highest Common Factors (HCF) and Lowest Common Multiples (LCM). In addition, it explores the rules of divisibility and how multiples and factors can be used to solve word problems. The presentation explains these concepts through detailed examples and opportunities for shared practise, through Think-Pair-Shares. While the unit is predominantly aimed at Year 5, this presentation could be used in lower of higher grades for extension or revision.
