Page 3 Why I chose the number 23 I chose this number because it is my favorite number and lucky number. I also chose it because I was born on the 23 rd of May in 1996. I further think that 23 is special because William Shakespeare was born on the 23 rd of April, who also died on the 23 rd of April. I admire him because of his poetry. My Special Number

Page 6 Mathematical Facts!!!! My number is a prime number because it only has 2 factors 1 and itself (23). 23 is the 9 th prime number and the smallest prime that is not a twin prime. 23 is the first prime number in which both digits are prime numbers and add up to another prime number. Eg: 2 + 3 = 5 My birth date 23 May 1996. May is the 5 th month. 1996 = 9+9+6-1 = 23. 23 May 1996 = 23 + 23 + 23. The alphabetic numerical value of my name, Hannah is 8 + 1 + 14 + 14 + 1 + 8 or 23 and 23. I was born in May and May is the 5 th month in order. I was born on May 23 rd and 2 + 3 = 5. My Special Number

Page 8 What I learned about 23 while playing the factor and product game I learned that 23 isn’t on the product game board because it is a prime number and none of the factors at the bottom could multiply up to 23. I learned that 23 is a good number to start with in the factor game because you would get 23 points while your opponent gets 1. My Special Number

Page 9 Some extra things you should know 23 is an odd number And ……… My number, 23, has 1 factor pair which is 1 and 23 because 23 is a prime number. My number is an abundant number because when you add 23s proper factors together you get 1 because 23 is a prime number. My Special Number

Page 10 Vocabulary Words Twin Prime: A twin prime means that when you don’t have only one number in between two primes but more than one. Alphabetic numerical value: Means when you write down the alphabet and underneath write 1,2,3.. And so on then you will see a number under the letters in your name. Then you add up all the numbers and that is your alphabetic numerical value. Abundant: When a numbers proper factors add up to be less than the number itself. My Special Number
