### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this math enrichment project students choose two numbers and compare them mathematically using the following terms and concepts:
•Prime or composite
• Factor and greatest common factor
• Multiple and least common multiple
• Prime factorization
• Proper fractions, improper fractions, and mixed numbers
• Order of operations

Included in this resource:
• Teacher directions
• Student directions
• Two slightly different rubrics
• Sample work

Directions:
1. Introduce the project to students and have them choose 2 numbers.
2. Explain that the final project will be a colorful poster.
3. Create a sloppy copy while researching the number. My students use math reference books and the Internet. The most interesting part is hearing the interesting facts about each of the numbers.
4. Create final copies at school or at home.
6. Hang the posters in the classroom. They look great at Open House or fall conferences.

Another Approach

This project could be used as a whole class activity after completing a unit or with small groups of students for math enrichment. It could also be used alongside my Favorite Number Project as a way to differentiate instruction.

The Comparing Numbers Project was created to be a poster project, but you could have students create a Prezi, a Power Point or Google Slides presentation, a flipbook, or something else entirely. You will find a score sheet appropriate for a poster project and a more generic score sheet that could be used for any colorful and creative project.

I think you will LOVE the project regardless of how you choose to use it. :)
