Product Description

This Math Match-Up provides expressions requiring participants to identify either the composite number or the prime factorization. Challenge one focuses on identifying the composite number from a prime factorization string written in exponential form. The second challenge students work in the reverse, given the composite number, identifying the longest string. Both challenges require familiarization with exponents and exponents to the zero power.

Math Match-Up Challenges are perfect skill reinforcement and practice activities that can be implemented in a variety of applications. Partner or small group activity. Independent practice or center activity. A favorite application is offering as a whole class game! Have students in pairs or small groups no larger than 3. Each pair/group has copies of both challenges as paper copy, or ideally, laminated together (Challenge One and Challenge Two back to back) or inside a laminated envelope for repeated use. One side at a time, students use their skills to complete each task to criteria established b the teacher. Students love Math Match-Ups as a game!!
