MAFS.K12.MP.1.1, 2.1, 6.1, 8.1 (make sense/persevere, reason abstractly/quantitatively, attend to precision, look for patterns/repeated reasoning)

Unit Essential Question: How can you use greatest common factor, least common multiple, the distributive property, and operations with fractions to solve RW problems?

We will find the least common multiple of two whole numbers less than or equal to 12.  Use the distributive property to express a sum of two whole numbers 1-100 with a common factor as a multiple of a sum of two whole numbers with no common factor.  We will look for patterns.

To find the LCM of two whole numbers, we will list multiples of both numbers.  The LCM will be the least multiple that is common to both numbers.  It can be used for determining the LCM that both numbers will divide into without a remainder.

We will explore using a 100s chart to discover when two activities will overlap.  We will watch a quick video clip on applying the LCM to a RW problem.  We will review the vocabulary words: least, common, multiple, distributive property.
