In This Unit of Study…

Students utilize their knowledge of fact fluency and how rectangular arrays represent multiplication to identify all factor pairs for a given number up to 144. Students use the amount of factor pairs to determine if the number is prime or composite.

B.E.S.T. Benchmarks:

  • MA.4.AR.3.1 Determine factor pairs for a whole number from 0 to 144. Determine whether a whole number from 0 to 144 is prime, composite or neither.
  • MA.4.NSO.2.1 Recall multiplication facts with factors up to 12 and related division facts with automaticity. 

Overarching Key Concepts:

  • Fluency: Multiply by 6
  • Represent and determine factor pairs within 144
  • Identify and describe prime and composite numbers within 144
