This activity builds on students' knowledge of finding factors, writing them in expanded form, and writing factors using exponents.

Key Steps

  • Image

    In this activity, students explore the factorization of numbers. First, students use the Home screen to expand a number into its factors, ensuring at each step that they are on the right path.
