    2. Check your email.

    3. Work on your assignments listed below.

    Some pointers:

    1.  You'll find your subject work on that teacher's page.  So if you have Miss Cunningham for Science right now, you'll get your Science assignment from her page.  Check your lessons' teacher and your specials' teacher as well.

    2.  All of us are available via email if you're having difficulty figuring something out.  

    3.  Have fun!

    ****I will be online from 9:00-11:00 and 1:00-3:00 if you need specific help. ****

    Overview:  Prime Numbers / Composite Numbers / Factors / Multiples

    Estimated Time: Approximately 45 minutes

    Explanation:   Today you will review prime and composite numbers, as well as complete activities using your knowledge of factors and multiples. 

    Things to know:

    • The following definitions can be used while completing the tasks for today.
      • prime number – a prime number has only two different factors, 1 and itself.
      • composite number – a composite number has more than 2 different factors.
      • factor – 12 can be divided exactly by 2. So, 2 is a factor of 12.
      • multiple – a multiple of a number is the product of the number and any other whole number except zero.
    • To review Prime Numbers / Composite Numbers / Factors / Multiples, please reference your workbook pages 1-34 (Chapter 1).
    • Please visit https://www.cbsd.org/Page/1511 to access tutorial videos related to accessing online Math in Focus resources.


    • Continue recording the daily temperature on your chart (either homemade or in the Excel template).
    • Prime/Composite:
      • Shuffle your set of number cards.
        • Flip over one card at a time. Determine if the number on the card is a prime number of a composite number. 
      • Shuffle your set of number cards again.
        • This time flip over two cards creating a 2-digit number
          • (ex: if you flip over a 4, then a 2, your number would be 42)
        • Determine if the number on the card is a prime number or a composite number.
      • Complete the PRIME/COMPOSITE T-Chart worksheet page.
        • You may develop numbers on your own or use your number cards to create numbers to sort into each category.
      • Factors:
        • Locate 5 numbers in your house. Each number must be a two digit number.  Fill in the Factors Chart for all 5 numbers. 
        • The Prime Factorization column is optional.
