placing the number stickers (to

represent the factors of each given

number) in the empty blanks of the

tree diagrams with the prime factors

of each given number, correctly

Background Information:

Vocabulary: product, factor, prime numbers, composite numbers

Determine factors of a number

Materials:

Prime Factorization Practice worksheet for elaboration

Classroom Management/Environment:

Classroom setup with students desks in 2 columns with rows of 5 in each, facing the

front of the room

Students may call out answers unless teacher is raising her hand or if a specific

student is asked to answer

Engagement/Focus:

Greeting: Good morning class, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Expected Behavior: Before we begin todays lesson, I am going to remind you that

you may call out the answers to any questions unless my hand is raised, or if a

question is directed to a single student, then you will need to raise your hand.

Link to Previous Knowledge: Remember how last week we learned what prime and

composite numbers are as well as finding factors of each? Well, before we learn

something new, lets do a quick review:

Great answer! SO, for example, name two numbers that can be multiplied to

get 28 [1 and 28, 2 and 14, 4 and 7]

Perfect! So all of these pairs that you listed are called what when referring to

28? [factors]

Now that youve recalled what a factor is, who can tell me the definition of a

prime number? [ a number that has exactly two factors, 1 and itself]

So Edna, what would an example of a prime number be? [2, 3, 5, 7, 11,]

That is exactly right! Now who knows the definition of a composite

number? [ any number that has more than two factors]

What is an example of a composite number? [4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12,]

Great job reviewing class!

Engagement: Now that you have put your thinking caps on and proved that you

remember all of these things, I think youre ready to take the next step up the ladder

with todays lesson, where we will learn how to search out the prime factorization of

a number using what we call the tree diagram!

Outcome: By the end of the day, you will be able to use what you know about

finding the factors of a number to determine the prime factorization of a given

number.

Explanation/Procedures:

1. Discuss factors:

Think about factors of different numbers for a second. Look at the list of

factors of numbers 3, 4, 5, and 6 on the board. For all numbers, both prime

and composite, which numbers are always factors? [1 and itself]

The Prime factorization of a number is the number written as the product of

its prime factors

When you find the factors of a number, this not only means that the factors,

having to form each letter or

number perfectly. To

accommodate this, there are

when multiplied together, give you the product (the number provided), but

also means that the given number is divisible by its factors. (for example,

2x12=24, and 24 is divisible by 2 and 12)

2. Refer to the Tree Diagram of Prime Factorization:

The Prime Factorization of a number can be found using the tree diagram,

which is a diagram that holds the given number as the base or top of the tree

and the prime factorization as the branches.

To find the prime factorization of a number using the tree model, you will

first list the factor pairs of the given number. In this case, we will use the

number 20

What are the factors or 20? [1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 20]

The second step is to choose any of the factor pairs on the list to begin the

tree Remember, the pair of numbers that you choose must equal to 20 when

you multiply them together.

o Edna which pair would you like to use? [5 x 4]

Draw two branches going down from 20 and write the pair under the

branches

Now, we will look at the pair of factors and determine if either number in the

pair is prime. If a number is prime, circle that prime number.

o Can anyone tell me if there is a prime number in our pair and if so,

which one? [yes, 2]

If the number can be further divided, draw two more branches under that

number and find the factors of this number

o Can 4 be divided into two numbers? [yes]

Who can tell me the factors of 4? [1, 2, 4]

Choose a prime factor pair to use next [2 x 2]

Place the 2 and 2 under the factor branches under the 4

o Is 2 a prime number? If so, which number do I circle? [circle both

twos]

Repeat the process of adding branches until the factors at the ends of the

Edna to complete the

activities instead of spending

too much time writing the

numbers.

Now, look at the ends of each branches. Are they all prime numbers? [yes]

Because they all end in prime numbers, we can no longer find factors of the

branches which means our prime factorization tree for 20 is complete.

The prime factorization of a number can be determined by looking at the

numbers circled in our tree diagram. Who can tell me the prime factorization

of 20 that we just found? [ 2 x 2 x 5]

3. Group Activity:

Now, we are going to see if you can work together in your groups to find the

prime factorization of 110

Split in to your groups, and refer to the roles list in the center of each table to

see what role each group member has

work together to solve the tree diagram

o Now we will go around the room and each group reporter will share

how your group came up with the answer

Extension/Elaboration:

Extension:

Extension worksheet: Complete the Extension worksheet

o What happens if your start the tree with a different factor pair?

Choose one of the boxes in which you completed the prime

factorization of the given number and start the tree diagram with a

different set of factors than you used the first time.

What happened to the prime factorization?

o Does the Prime Factorization change?

Show your work and explain your answer

Elaboration:

Elaboration worksheet: Use the Ladder! worksheet.

o Use the Ladder Diagram

diagram with space to place

sticker numbers

Choose a prime factor of 36 and place it to the left of the ladder by the

36

Divide 36 by the prime number you chose and put the answer in the

step down the ladder

Keep dividing by PRIME numbers until the last number is 1

o Hint: You can check your work by multiplying the prime factorization

together to give you a product that should be equal to the given number.

Find the prime factorization of 12

Check your answer

Does 3 x 2 x 3 = 12?

Closure:

Review: Lets review what we learned today real quick! Edna, can you tell me what

it means to find the prime factorization of a number? [the number written as the

product of its prime factors]

o Great answer Edna! Who can tell me what the prime factorization of 10 is?

[2 x 5]

Anticipation: Tomorrow we are going to raise the bar and determine how to use

exponents to write a prime factorization.

Praise: You all did a wonderful job of using your previous knowledge of what a

prime and composite number is to find the factors of different numbers, all allowing

you to correctly determine the prime factorization of numbers! I am so proud of your

hard work and determination, as well as obedience in following the rules! Great job

class!
