Unit 1: Working with Factors and Multiples

This unit solidifies our understanding of multiplication by exploring the relationship of factors and multiples.  Students will be able to find the greatest common factor and the least common multiple of any two whole numbers.  The learning targets for the unit are as follows:

  1. I can find the greatest common factor of two whole numbers up to 100 (or greater than 100). 6.NS.4
  2. I can find the least common multiple of two whole numbers less than or equal to 12 (or greater than 12). 6.NS.4
  3. I can find the prime factorization for a whole number. (6.ns.4)
  4. I can use the distributive property to translate between expanded form and factored form.  6.NS.4
  5. I can apply greatest common factors and least common multiples to contextual situations. 6.NS.4
