Well today we went over some of the homeworrk we were assigned to do.
We also went over some definitions, such as...
Square Numbers-the product of a whole number multiplied by it self
Factors-a whole number which divides evenly into a whole number leaving no remainder.
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)
Prime Factors-factors that are prime numbers.
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.
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.
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.
