Objective

Students will search for special primes and look for patterns along the way.

Steps

  1. First, students search for twin primes: prime numbers with a difference of two.
  2. Then, they look for cousin primes: prime numbers with a difference of four.
  3. Finally, they look for prime quintuplets: five primes in which the difference between the largest and smallest is 12.
