Lesson Objectives:

  • Answer this essential question:
    • How do we use our understanding of factors and multiples to find the greatest common factor and the least common multiple?
      • Furthermore, how can we apply finding the greatest common factor and the least common multiple to real-world scenarios?
  • Define, identify, and find factors, multiples, greatest common factors, and least common mutliples in computation problems.
  • Solve real-world problems requiring we find the least common multiple or the greatest common factor that may include the distributive property.
