Flip for Math: Step-By Step, Multiples and Finding Least Common Multiple

The purpose of a ‘We Flip for Math’ Flip Book, is to provide a struggling student with a step-by-step guide to take them through the process they are struggling with.

I have various flip books available in my classroom, but only after I’ve taught the concept and we have practiced it a number of times. The complexity of some skills can be quite challenging for many students. Being able to remember all the steps can become overwhelming for some. A flip-book can help walk these children through the process. In addition, I have found flip-books can be helpful when sending homework home . Including a flip book can make for very happy parents!

This packet contains a 2-part flip-book that focuses on multiples. In the first section, the step-by-step process for finding a single number's multiples is given. The second section, shows how to use The 'M' Method to find the Least Common Multiple of two numbers. Also included are 10 ‘Jumbo’ practice cards and two ready-made tabs for dividing the two parts. Answer key is included.

Just a note, The 'M' Method for finding LCM works well when first introducing the concept of finding the LCM. The method is quite different than finding GCF, which helps prevent confusing the two skills. The method also provides a very structured approach that makes the skill easier for most students to master.
