Math Slide for Class-2kauss6

The Virtual Nerd link below is an example of what we worked through at the end of class.  We use Factor Trees to find the Greatest Common Factor (GCF) of two or more numbers.  Please watch this video and review the process for class.

For the rest of the week, we will be taking an “Almost There Test” to test the classes overall knowledge to this point.  Next week, we will be completing our lessons on GCF and then learning how to find the least common multiple of two or more numbers.
