Year 4 Have The X-Factor!

Easy Blog Photo
The children in Mr Hunt’s class have been exploring factors in Maths today.

Using cubes, the children explored how we can make arrays to show the different factors of a given product. For example, using 6 cubes, we could make one stick of six cubes, or two sticks with three cubes in each. So we knew that the product of 6 has the factors 1, 2, 3 and 6.

The children worked really well and explored a range of numbers. We discovered that the product of 24 had 8 factors! Can you name them all? Let us know in the comments below.

This week when we have retrieved information from texts about Egypt, we learned that the Ancient Egyptians invented many things for a more comfortable life. This afternoon, we have gone back in time to Egypt, to construct our own paper (papyrus).
