Bell  Finish "Activity 15," problem solving with all operations, by completing #712. Bell Work was modified for 4th Period. #16 will be graded for completion instead. Activity 15 was posted yesterday.
Classwork
(1) Discuss and check daily homework.
(2) Find the prime factorization of numbers using "Prime Factor Trees AI." This document was posted yesterday as well. Remember that prime factorization is a way of writing a given number as a product of prime numbers. Prime numbers are whole numbers that have only 2 factors, one and itself. The prime factorization of 48 is 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3. The product of these primes is 48. We can rewrite this string of primes using exponents, 2^4 x 3. This translates as two to the fourth power (insert 4 as an exponent) times 3. Use the key below to check your work.

Bell  Prime Factorization Error Analysis. Who correctly found the prime factorization of 80? Explain how you know.
prime_factorization_error_analysis.pdf  
File Size:  271 kb 
File Type: 
Judy did not find the prime factorization of 80 because she used addition instead of multiplication to divide 80 into two factors. Factors are whole numbers that divide other whole numbers evenly without remainders. Factors multiply (not add) together to form a product. Instead of using factors of 80, Judy used addends.
Another way to prove that Judy's solution does not reflect the prime factorization of 80 is to find the value of her solution, five to the sixteenth power. Five to the second power, or five squared, equals 25. Five to the third power, or five cubed, equals 125. Five to the sixteenth power, which is five as a factor 16 times, would be much greater than 80.

Bell  Add "Jasmine's Work" to yesterday's "Error Analysis of Prime Factorization." Explain whether or not she correctly found the prime factorization of 80. Then, complete "Even Steven" located on the back of "Chain Code."
Jasmine correctly factored 80 into prime factors, but when she wrote the expression, she used all factors in the process of finding the prime factorization.
The prime factorization of a number should only include prime numbers. 4 8 and 10 are composite numbers and should not have been included in her string of prime factors. Also, had she checked the product of her expression, she would have found that 2 to the fourth times 4 times 5 times 8 times 10 is much greater than 80.
