Flip for Math: Step-By Step Prime Factorization
A step-by-step guide for finding the Prime Factorization of a given number!

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-in-1 flip-book.

• The first flip-book section provides definitions.

• The first section shows how to find prime factors using the Birthday Cake Method.

• The third section shows how to find prime factors using the Tree Method.

• Ready-made file tabs which can be used to divide each section.

• Two separate covers, so each method could be an individual book.
