Factors and Codes
Students will use the factors of a number to turn that number into words.
This is a sample from the Factors and Multiples edition of Prufrock's Advanced Common Core Math Explorations series.
- First, students encode PIE, BREAD, and BEARD.
- Then they'll find other words that would encode to 720.
- Students explore the "Forbidden Letters" of 720, starting with G.
- Finally, they look for the longest 720 words possible. BARED, FABLE, AIDED, and DEBAR are other 5-letter words. BALBOA and BABIED are two 6-letter words.
