### Description

This group activities could be done in the physical classroom or in breakout sessions on Zoom or Google classroom.

Each student will be responsible for a set of 6 problems applying the concepts you have taught in class. Together, the group will solve the logic puzzle based on clues that result from their individual solutions.

Highlighted Formulas/Skill:

• List factors of a number
• Determine Greatest Common Factor of two numbers

With this activity, your students will...

• Build their skills as they determine Greatest Common Factor of two numbers.
• Deepen their understanding as they build their critical thinking and logic skills.
• All be involved. Since each student has his/her own paper they are responsible for, it keeps any one member from just sitting back and letting the rest of the group take over.
• Learn how to think critically. Logic puzzles build critical thinking and problem-solving skills (the same skills you need to excel at math!)
• Learn to solve complex problems by simply doing the one step you know, then the next step, then the next, until you arrive at the answer.

Perfect for centers or cooperative learning activities.

### Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Find the greatest common factor of two whole numbers less than or equal to 100 and the least common multiple of two whole numbers less than or equal to 12. Use the distributive property to express a sum of two whole numbers 1–100 with a common factor as a multiple of a sum of two whole numbers with no common factor. For example, express 36 + 8 as 4 (9 + 2).
