Factor Trees using Popplet

Students used the Popplet app to help diagram how they know their multiplication facts and the realtionship that factors have in making  a product tree. They learned the definition of a prime number and demostrated their thinking by highlighting the primes and writing them into a number senetence that equals their product. We factorized numbers as small as 12 and as large as 128.  Mrs. Ardizzoni assisted in this lesson by teaching the students the Popplet app. We love Math in Room 205!!!
