Find the Number (4)

## Stage 1: Factors

### Narrative

Students find all the factors for a given number. One player chooses a number on the gameboard (1–36) and they get that many points. The other player covers all the factors of that number. Their score is the sum of all the covered factors. Students take turns choosing the starting number. If a player chooses a number that doesn’t have any uncovered factors, they lose their next turn. When there are no numbers remaining with uncovered factors, the player with the most points wins.

### Additional Information

Each group of 2 needs 36 centimeter cubes.

## Stage 2: Factors and Multiples

### Narrative

Students find factors and multiples for a given number. To start, one player chooses an even number less than 50. The other player covers either a factor or multiple of that number. Students take turns covering either a multiple or factor of the previous number. When there are no factors or multiples left to cover, the player who covered the last number gets a point. Students take turns choosing the starting number. Students play 10 rounds, as time allows, and the player with the most points wins.

### Additional Information

Each group of 2 needs 100 centimeter cubes.
