Year 4 Have The X-Factor!

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.

    It’s great to hear that Year 4 have been maths detectives this morning. Just another thought, does anyone also know what name is given to these numbers which have just 2 factors – for example the number 2 and the number 7 and the number 11?
