Year 4 Mathematics – Factor Trees
June 11, 2019
Students in Year 4 are gearing up for their unit on Multiplication and Division. This week, students have been learning about Factors and Multiples to prepare. Factors and Multiples help students to develop their number sense and also to practice skip counting (a precurser to multiplication). Students worked together to design their own ‘factor trees’ which show all of the pairs of factors which multiply together to form a given product. This activity gave students the freedom to work interdependently and it was great to see students working together towards a common goal.
