This lesson is designed to reinforce prime factorization with the goal of memorizing the factorization of numbers under 50. After tracking data for over twenty years on algebra skills, I have learned this is one of the most important fundamentals for students in Pre-Algebra, Algebra and even Advanced Algebra. Prime Factorization is an automatic response that must occur for Exponent Operations, Polynomial Factoring and Division, and Logarithms. The data strongly suggests students who struggle with the second semester of Advanced Algebra often have struggles with Prime Factorization or the seeing of numbers as prime factors. Here, the lesson takes prime factorization further by teaching students how to find the LCM and GCF of two or more numbers.
