Have students practice finding the greatest common factor and least common multiple of two numbers using the cake method with this resource.
The 4 pages of this download include:
- a 1-page study guide/reteaching sheet that explains how to use the cake method (or ladder method) to find the GCF and LCM and gives a worked out example on the top, and includes 6 practice problems on the bottom.
- a 1-page practice worksheet with 8 problems on it that have students use the cake method to find the gcf & lcm of 2 numbers
- answer keys to each of the 2 pages
The study guide is great to glue into notebooks or to give students in preparation of a test or quiz, while the practice sheet is perfect for a classwork or homework assignment.
This pack would be great in an emergency sub binder, as well, as the study guide page explains how to do the problems, allowing students to complete the practice problems independently by following along with the given example.
