Greatest Common Factor and Least Common Multiple Math Detective Activity
Your students will love taking on the role of math detectives with this engaging way to practice and review greatest common factor and least common multiple problems. Students follow clues to solve a mystery that takes students "traveling" around Brazil. Problems include word problems and 3 and 4 digit numbers.

A great addition to your middle school math curriculum. I like to use this after we complete interactive notebook notes on GCF and LCM.
