1 CISC - Curriculum & Instruction Steering Committee California County Superintendents Educational Services Association Primary Content Module IV The Winning EQUATION NUMBER SENSE: Factors of Whole Numbers A HIGH QUALITY MATHEMATICS PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM FOR TEACHERS IN GRADES 4 THROUGH ALGEBRA II STRAND: NUMBER SENSE: Factors of Whole Numbers MODULE TITLE: PRIMARY CONTENT MODULE IV MODULE INTENTION: The intention of this module is to inform and instruct participants in the underlying mathematical content in the area of factoring whole numbers. THIS ENTIRE MODULE MUST BE COVERED IN-DEPTH. The presentation of these Primary Content Modules is a departure from past professional development models. The content here, is presented for individual teacher s depth of content in mathematics. Presentation to students would, in most cases, not address the general case or proof, but focus on presentation with numerical examples. TIME: 2 hours PARTICIPANT OUTCOMES: Demonstrate understanding of factors of whole numbers. Demonstrate understanding of the principles of prime and composite numbers. Demonstrate how to determine the greatest common factor and the least common multiple when relating two whole numbers.

2 CISC - Curriculum & Instruction Steering Committee 2 California County Superintendents Educational Services Association Primary content Module IV NUMBER SENSE: Factors of Whole Numbers PRIMARY CONTENT MODULE IV NUMBER SENSE: Factors of Whole Numbers Facilitator s Notes Pre-Post Test T-1 Ask participants to take the pre-test. After reviewing the results of the pre-test proceed with the following lesson on factors of whole numbers. Divisability: While expressions of the form a = b q + r enable us to divide any whole number a by any counting number b, assuming a > b, special importance is attached to the case when r = 0. A number b > 0 is called a divisor or factor of a if there exists a whole number q so that a = b q. Since 0 = b 0, 0 is divisible by any b > 0. Whenever a > 0 and a = b q, there is a rectangular array of b q dots that corresponds to the factorization of a by b. T-2 Zero and One: Note that, a = 1 a or a 1 = a and 0 = a 0 or 0 a = 0 leads to the conclusion that 0 is divisible by any number a 0 and any number a is divisible by 1. T-3 Caution: Division by zero is not allowed. Suppose a 0 = q Then a = 0 q. This is impossible if a 0. If a = 0, any value of q works, but for division there can only be one answer. T-4 An example is a = b q, assuming a > b, 24 = 4 6 a factors as b q 24 factors as 4 6 Have participants think about how to represent 24 as factors another way, and how to represent factors of 7.

3 CISC - Curriculum & Instruction Steering Committee 3 California County Superintendents Educational Services Association Primary content Module IV NUMBER SENSE: Factors of Whole Numbers Factoring is an important skill for later applications (e.g., it arises in the addition of fractions) and a concept of interest in its own right. An engaging way to introduce students to this topic is to relate it to the study of prime numbers. T-5 A whole number is said to be prime if it has exactly two factors: one and itself. This definition keeps 1 from being a prime. A number > 1 that is not prime is called a composite. The first of these definitions leads to the following list of primes: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, Primes have been studied for thousands of years, and many of their important properties were established by the ancient Greeks. Among these is the fact that the above list goes on indefinitely; i.e., there is no largest prime. T-6 T-6A T-6B/H-6 T-6C [Optional: T-20 through T-23] Show participants short cuts for testing if whole numbers are divisible by other whole numbers. Number Shortcut 2 ones digit is 0 or even 3 sum of digits is divisible by 3 4 last two digits are divisible by 4 5 ones digit is 0 or 5 6 rules for 2 and 3 both work 8 last 3 digits are divisible by 8 9 sum of digits are divisible by 9 10 ones digit is 0 Use appendix section on justification for divisibility rules at this point, if desired. Every whole number > 1 can be written as the product of prime factors. T-7 For example: Chipaway technique 24 = 2 12 = = = Split Asunder Technique 24 = 4 6 = = Chipaway technique 1200 = 2 600

4 CISC - Curriculum & Instruction Steering Committee 4 California County Superintendents Educational Services Association Primary content Module IV NUMBER SENSE: Factors of Whole Numbers = = = = = = Split Asunder Technique 1200 = = = = T-8 T-8A/H-8 T-9 These techniques may be accomplished with the process of factor trees. Transparency T-8 demonstrates this process. Have participants use both techniques on 60 and 500 and draw the corresponding factor tree. The Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic asserts that except for order, you will obtain the same list of primes regardless of the method used to arrive at a prime factorization. It states that every composite number greater than one can be expressed as a product of prime numbers. Except for the order in which the prime numbers are written, this can only be done in one way. T-10A Factors and GCFs: Aside from being able to factor whole numbers into products of primes, it is also important to be able to develop lists containing all factors (prime and composite) of a particular number. For example, T-10B The factors of 24 are: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24. The factors of 37 are: 1, 37. The factors of 64 are: 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64. Except in the case of perfect squares, factors appear in pairs whose product is the number being factored. T-11/H-11 Have participants find the factors of 32 and of 80 using H-11. Have participants discuss the difference between finding all factors and finding the prime factorization. Example: A list of all factors

5 CISC - Curriculum & Instruction Steering Committee 5 California County Superintendents Educational Services Association Primary content Module IV NUMBER SENSE: Factors of Whole Numbers of 80 is 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 16, 20, 40, 80 because 80 is divisible by all of these. The prime factorization of 80 is = because 2 and 5 are both primes. T-12 Given two numbers such as 24 and 64, we can form a list of common factors. Referring to the above lists of factors of 24 and 64, we conclude that The common factors of 24 and 64 are 1, 2, 4, and 8. The last list leads to the important concept of greatest common factor (GCF): A) List of factors The greatest common factor of 24 and 64 is 8. This is sometimes written as GCF(24, 64) = 8. 30: 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 10, 15, 30 96: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, 32, 48, 96 Common factors of 30 and 96 are 1, 2, 3, 6 GCF(30, 96) is 6. B) List of factors 90: 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 9, 10, 15, 18, 30, 45, 90 75: 1, 3, 5, 15, 25, 75 Common factors of 90 and 75 are 1, 3, 5, 15 GCF(90, 75) is 15. T-13A T-13B T-13C/H-13 It is possible to determine GCF(a,b) from the prime factorizations of a and b. Follow the examples on the slides. A) 30 = = = = GCF(30, 96) = 2 3 = 6 B) 90 = = = = GCF(90, 75) = 3 5 = 15

6 CISC - Curriculum & Instruction Steering Committee 6 California County Superintendents Educational Services Association Primary content Module IV NUMBER SENSE: Factors of Whole Numbers C) 4500 = = GCF(4500, 4050) = = 450 T-14A Closely related to GCF is the concept of least common multiple (LCM). A somewhat awkward way of finding LCM(30, 96) is to write lists of multiples of 30 and of 96. Surely is on both of these lists. We are, however, looking for the smallest number common to both lists. Here we find: Multiples of 30: 30, 60, 90, 120, 150,, 450, 480, 510,, 2880, 2910, Multiples of 96: 96, 192, 288, 384, 480, 776,, 2880, 2976, so that LCM(30, 96) = 480. T-14B However, LCM(30, 96) can also be found as the smallest product of primes that contains the prime factorizations of both 30 and 96. Recalling that 30 = and that 96 = = 2 5 3, we find that LCM(30, 96) = = 480 T-14C/H-14 T-15A Have participants find LCM(24, 64) and LCM(32, 48) using prime factorization. The characterization of GCF and LCM in terms of prime factorization leads to the following important fact: GCF(a, b) LCM(a, b) = a b. Having already found that GCF(30, 96) = 6, we could now find LCM(30, 96) as LCM(30, 96) = 30 x x 96 = = 5 x 96 = 480. GCF(30, 96) 6 T-15B T-15C/H-15 Explanation for this formula. After recalling that GCF(24, 64) = 8, ask participants to find LCM(24, 64) by applying GCF(a, b) LCM(â, b) using H-15.

7 CISC - Curriculum & Instruction Steering Committee 7 California County Superintendents Educational Services Association Primary content Module IV NUMBER SENSE: Factors of Whole Numbers T-16 LCM s play an important role in the addition of fractions. In order to add , we have to rewrite this problem in terms of equivalent 8 fractions with a common denominator. One possible choice for a common denominator is 8 12, leading to = = A more convenient choice is the least common denominator, which is LCM(12, 8) = 24. This leads to = T-16A/H-16 T-16B T-17 Have participants add fractions by finding least common denominator on worksheet H-16. Practice word problems for LCM and GCF. Cover the answers. In order to show that a given number is prime, it is necessary to show that its only factors are 1 and the number itself. For example, The factors of 113 are: 1, 113 and for that reason 113 is prime. Enrichment Determining Whether a Number is Prime A number that is a perfect square is surely not prime. Recalling that the factors of all other non-prime numbers occur in pairs, it is not necessary to check all smaller numbers as possible factors. For example, to determine whether 137 is prime, we note that 137 < 144, where 144 is a perfect square. For any pair of factors whose product is 137, one of the factors would be less that 137. Since 121 < 137 < < 137 < 12 it is sufficient to confirm that the numbers 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11 are not factors of 137. Having done this, we can conclude that 137 is prime. T-18 In fact, it is not even necessary to check all whole numbers between 1 and 11. If 6 were a factor of 137, its prime factors (notably 2 and 3) would be factors of 137 as well. On this basis, we need only check that the primes 2, 3, 5, 7, and 11 are not factors of 137.

8 CISC - Curriculum & Instruction Steering Committee 8 California County Superintendents Educational Services Association Primary content Module IV NUMBER SENSE: Factors of Whole Numbers More generally, to establish that a is prime, it is sufficient to confirm that all primes less than a fail to be factors of a. T-19/H-19 Ask participants to determine whether the numbers 223 and 179 are prime. What is the smallest list of numbers that must be checked as possible factors of 223 and of 179? Appendix T-20 T-21 T-22 T-23 These slides give more detailed justification for the rules for determining divisibility by 2 and 3. The facilitator may use these slides at his or her discretion.

11 PRIMARY CONTENT MODULE IV NUMBER SENSE: Factors of Whole Numbers T-1 Divisibility A whole number a is divisible by another (smaller) counting number b if a = bq where q is a whole number. In this case we write a b = q b is a factor or divisor of a Example: a = 15 is divisible by b = 3 because 15 = 3q where q = 5 Equivalently, 15 3 = 5 Notice that a = bq is a special case of a = bq + r when r = 0. So a is divisible by b means that the remainder is zero when a is divided by b.

31 PRIMARY CONTENT MODULE IV NUMBER SENSE: Factors of Whole Numbers T-14A Least Common Multiple One way to find LCM(30, 96) is to write lists of multiples of 30 and of 96. The least common multiple is the smallest number common to both lists of multiples. Multiples of 30: 30, 60, 90, 120, 150, 450, 480, 510,,2880, 2910, Multiples of 96: 96, 192, 288, 384, 480, 776,,2880, 2976, From these lists we see that LCM(30, 96) = 480.

40 PRIMARY CONTENT MODULE IV NUMBER SENSE: Factors of Whole Numbers T-17 Enrichment Determining Whether a Number is Prime For a number that is not a perfect square, factors occur in pairs. To determine whether a number is prime, it is not necessary to check all smaller numbers as possible factors. Is 137 prime? For any pair of factors whose product is 137, one of the factors would be less than < 137< < 137 < 12 It is sufficient to confirm that the numbers 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11 are not factors of 137 to show that 137 is prime.

41 PRIMARY CONTENT MODULE IV NUMBER SENSE: Factors of Whole Numbers T-18 In fact, it is not necessary to check all whole numbers between 1 and 11. E.g., if 6 were a factor of 137, its prime factors (2 and 3) would also be factors of 137. We only need to check that the primes < 137 2, 3, 5, 7, and 11 are not factors of 137. To establish that a is prime, it is sufficient to confirm that all primes less than or equal to a fail to be factors of a.

Is 223 prime? What is the smallest list of numbers that must be checked as possible factors of 179? Is 179 prime?

43 PRIMARY CONTENT MODULE IV NUMBER SENSE: Factors of Whole Numbers T-20 Divisibility Rules Basic ingredients: A B means A divides B or in other words, there is an integer k such that B = A k. Example: 2 10 because 10 = 2 5 Theorem: If A B and A C, then A (B+C). Example: If 2 10 and 2 8, then 2 18 Proof: If A B, there is an integer k 1, such that B = A k 1. If A C, there is an integer k 2 such that C = A k 2. Therefore: B + C = A k 1 + A k 2 = A (k 1 + k 2 ) So, A (B + C)

44 PRIMARY CONTENT MODULE IV NUMBER SENSE: Factors of Whole Numbers T-21 Here is another result Theorem 2: If A (B + C) and A C, then A B Example: If 2 18 and 2 10, then 2 (18-10) or 2 8. Proof: If A (B+C), B + C = A k 1, for some integer k 1. If A C, C = A k 2 for some integer k 2. Then Therefore B = (B + C) C = A k 1 A k 2 = A (k 1 k 2 ) A B.

45 PRIMARY CONTENT MODULE IV NUMBER SENSE: Factors of Whole Numbers T-22 Divisibility by 2 2 (a b 10 + c ) if and only if 2 c. Proof: Let B = a b 10. Then 2 B because B = 2 (A ). If 2 c, then 2 (B + c) by Theorem 1. If 2 (B + c ), then 2 c by Theorem 2. The only single digit numbers divisible by 2 are 0, 2, 4, 6, and 8.
