Well today we went over some of the homeworrk we were assigned to do.

For example...

*Factors of...*

1-1

2-1,2

3-1,3

4-1,2,4

5-1,5

We also went over some definitions, such as...

*Square Numbers*-the product of a whole number multiplied by it self

Example...9=3x3

*Factors*-a whole number which divides evenly into a whole number leaving no remainder.

Example...16=1,2,4,8,16

*Prime Numbers*-a whole number greater than 1, that has only 2 factors. The 2 factors are 1 and itself.(

**1 is not a prime number**)

Example...

2,3,5,7,11,13

*Prime Factors*-factors that are prime numbers.

Example...

10=1,2,5,10(the prime factors are 2 and 5)

After homework check we went into

*Prime Factorization*.

Here are a few examples.

18=2x3x3

24=2x2x2x3

36=2x3x2x3

144=3x4x3x4

144=2x2x2x3x2x3

I couldn't draw a factor tree so just look at Ronny's or someone who has a factor tree if you want to understand prime factorization easier.

Than the lady(can't remember her name) told us that the way to find out which one is a

*perfect square*is that it is to have

*even pairs of the same numbers.*

Example...

36=2x3x2x3

2 and 2 are 1 pair

3 and 3 are another pair

If you don't understand what I'm doing ask Mr Harbeck or the other teacher.

Homework is do

*pages 24 and 25*in your math book.

PLEASE COMMENT!!!

Hey Bruce, you made a good scribepost! I liked how you told us everything and what was important, but you should have tried a little bit harder to post pictures. Overall, you did a very good job! Btw the ''lady'' is Ms. Usiskin

ReplyDeletegood job explaining everything it...but it would be better if you showed us how you got the answers...

ReplyDeletewow, goood job , you had practically everything we learned in class today , good job , better play good during citys !!

ReplyDeleteNice Job Bruce! I liked how you gave examples and definitions! The only thing I wasn't happy about is that you didn't show how you got the answer. Anyways Great Job Bruce!

ReplyDeleteGood Job Bruce great knowledge of the definitions

ReplyDeletegood job ! I liked how you made the important things a different colour and how you told us what the homework was !
