Understanding and Evaluating Exponents
In this video lesson we will Investigate index notation and represent whole numbers as products of powers of prime numbers.
We aim that kids will achieve the following in this series
- defining and comparing prime and composite numbers and explaining the difference between them
- applying knowledge of factors to strategies for expressing whole numbers as products of powers of prime factors, such as repeated division by prime factors or creating factor trees
- solving problems involving lowest common multiples and greatest common divisors (highest common factors) for pairs of whole numbers by comparing their prime factorisation
