# Prime Factor Decomposition

Students learn to break down a number using its prime factors.

Later, as learning progresses, they solve simple equations where the unknown is power and the baseÂ is prime.

##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to decompose an integer using its prime factors.
• Most students should be able to decompose an integer using its prime factors and write the product using index notation.
• Some students should be able to solve equations such as 2mx 3k= 648 using prime number factorisation.
