Primes & Factoring







After introducing the concept of using blocks to find all possible combinations, allow students to practice using our digital game Block Target.

In this game, students are given a target number of blocks. They use sliders to create rectangles to reach the target number. The goal is to find all possible ways to hit the target value.

Different modes make this a great game to come back to as students increase their fluency. We recommend students begin with Hints on and Count Reflections off. As they become more comfortable and confident, they may choose to try without hints as well as automatically include reflections. In addition, players may select to increase the challenge with a timer.
