- Arrays – meet the factor families (ABC Splash Game)
- Adam Spencer loves prime numbers (ABC Splash)
- Patterns, primes and pascal’s triangle (ABC Splash)
Please write ten examples of each of the terms listed above. Use the following numbers to create a ‘factor tree”: 24; 120; 128; 130; 240; 360; 480.
We will practise our multiplication tables and learn more about prime numbers using the game “Multo”.
