              Factors of an Integer

              The start of the lesson involves organising integers within a Venn diagram according to their number properties.   Students build on this in the development phase by considering the factors of an integer using a times table grid and then mental methods.   The application of calculating factors extends their learning later in the lesson by derivation of Primes and Square Numbers.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the factors of an integer using a times table grid.
              • Most students should be able to calculate the factors of an integer using mental methods.
              • Some students should be able to discover the first ten prime and square numbers by considering their factors.

              There are two key learning points when solving problems with angles in polygons.  The first is to understand why all the exterior angles of a polygon have a sum of 360°.  The second is to understand the interior and exterior angles appear on the same straight line. Students can be told these two facts and […]
