This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 18, Unit 7, Grade 6. In this activity, students work in pairs to solve problems that involve thinking about factors and multiples as well as the greatest common factor and least common multiple. After solving the problems, they reflect on what type of mathematical work was part of each problem and then record this information into a table. Students begin to notice similarities in the types of problems that involve factors and and in those that involve multiples.
