PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Math Circle - Factors and Multiples

Put aside the worksheets and get your students reviewing math concepts, working together and up and moving with this Factors and Multiples Math Circle. This Math Circle is similar to the format of my Drama Circles, in which students follow the directions on their cards, with each card following another. Students must pay attention to the task because they need to watch for their turns.

This factors and multiples math circle follows the same premise, but students are model different factors and multiples concepts - factors, multiples, GCF, LCM, and prime factors.

The Math Circle can be completed anywhere the students have a bit of space. They could make a circle in the classroom or the gym, or if the weather is nice, why not take it outside?

The first step is to cut out enough number cards so that every student has a number which they can tape onto their shirt, or hang around their neck on a string (I just tape them – much quicker). Give out the numbers 1 – 9 to the first 10 students, then repeat so that every student has one number card (it is perfectly OK to have doubles of the digits, as different students will be included in building different numbers). Then, pass out the instruction cards (1 – 40). Starting with the first card, students will follow the instructions on the card. For example, the first card asks the student to gather 3 students to show the factors of 9. So, the student would ask someone with a 1, someone with a 3, and someone with a 9 to stand up and step into the circle. He or she would then say, "The factors of 9 are 1, 3, and 9". Once the task is complete, the student with the next card goes.

I have also included a "teacher follow-along sheet" that summarizes all concepts to be modelled, and how they are to be modelled.

Please see the free preview for a complete set of instructions and sample cards.
