Number and Operation Session 6: Number Theory
 

As part of our exploration of number theory, we will look at two models for finding least common multiples and greatest common factors: the Venn diagram model and the area model. Later in the session, we will explore prime and composite numbers.

For information on required and/or optional material for this session, see Note 1.
