PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A Tricky Skill Made Easier! Word Problems Strategies - Compare and Contrast - GCF and LCM Problems

This short product packs a valuable punch! Don't let its little size fool you!

Word problems requiring the use of GCF or LCM seem to be pretty popular on state testing. While students are usually able to find the GCF or the LCM of a set of numbers easily, they have a much harder time recognizing which one to look for when it is embedded into a word problem. This is a small group activity that requires students to work together to pick apart two problems and to analyze what needs to be found and which type of number is being sought after, a GCF or the LCM. Students complete a guided rubric for each problem and then compare and contrast them. They will then work together to develop a "brief" to help finalize their understanding of what to look for when solving these types of problems. Finally, students are required to make their own problems using what they have learned. The completed teacher rubric is included. Help your students learn a very valuable skill with some real-world application!
