Factors: Numbers we multiply to get a certain number. Think, what numbers can we multiply to get 12? 1 x 12 2 x 6 3 x 4 So, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12 – are FACTORS of 12.

Greatest Common Factor:
The largest common factor of two or more numbers: To find factors, build T-charts: Common factors are: 1, 2, 3, 6 GREATEST COMMON FACTOR is 6

For Factors – build a T-chart; For Multiples just skip count!
Rhyme: For Factors – build a T-chart; For Multiples just skip count! (Say it 6 times. Learn it at home)
