“Math is a Language” - Josiah Willard Gibbs
September 27th Discussion--the Language of Numbers
What words can we use to describe numbers? How does that help us use and understand numbers in our daily life?
Words That Describe Numbers
Comic Strip Creator Teams
Ways that word helps us to learn math and succeed in daily life?
Every number has a name
2,000,000 vs 2 vs 200
You have to understand the number’s value (how big it is).
We have to understand place value.
*Shel Silverstein poem
It can be divided into two equal groups.
It can’t be divided into two whole numbers.
Digits: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
There are only ten digits
The digits are the figures the that make up all numbers to “infinity and beyond.”
No decimals, no fractions -- it’s the whole thing such as 1, 2, 3, …..35, 36...100
“Buzz Lightyear Numbers”
It’s counting by a specific number. The multiples of 12 are 12, 24, 36, 48. . .
Multiples go to infinity and beyond. . .
1 is a factor of all numbers.
2 is a factor of all even numbers.
Factors are numbers you multiply to get a product (answer in multiplication)
The factor pairs for 24 are:
Numbers that make a square when you draw an array like this 4 is a square number:
Square numbers have two factors that are the same such as 3X3 = 9, 9 is the square number. 16 is square because 4 X 4 = 16.
2 is the only even prime #
It’s a number that can only be divided by one and itself or it only has one factor pair: 1 X itself.
2,3,5,7,11,13,17,19,23,29,31,37, 41, 43, 47, 51, 53, 59, 61, 67,
They two or more factor pairs, they are the opposite of primes
Composite Numbers Less than twenty:
4: 1X4, 2X2
6: 1X6, 2X3
8: 1X8, 2X4
9: 1X9, 3X3
10: 1X10, 2X5
12: 1X12, 2X6, 3X4
14: 1X14, 2X7
15: 1X15, 3X5
16: 1X16, 2X8, 4X4
18: 1X18, 2X9, 3X6
20: 1X20, 2X10, 4X5
is a whole number, not composite or prime
not composite or prime
