7. Use the distributive property to express the sum of two whole numbers with a common factor as a multiple of a sum of two whole numbers with no common factor.

8. Find the greatest common factor (GCF) and least common multiple (LCM) of two or more whole numbers.

a. Use factors and multiples to determine prime factorization.

The Illuminations tool, Product Game, is an excellent resource for students to gain a deeper understanding of factors and multiples. This tool challenges students to make offensive and defensive moves to obtain four products in a row by selecting factors ranging from one to nine. The challenge comes when one of the factors must be from your opponent’s last move. Students can either play against the computer or with a partner in their class.

28. Apply previous understanding of volume of right rectangular prisms to those with fractional edge lengths to solve real-world and mathematical problems.

a. Use models (cubes or drawings) and the volume formulas (*V = lwh* and *V = Bh*) to find and compare volumes of right rectangular prisms.

[DLIT] (6) 12 : 6) Identify steps in developing solutions to complex problems using computational thinking.

In this activity, students will compute real-world problems involving the volume of rectangular prisms. Students are provided models of rectangular prisms with fractional edge lengths and asked to compute how many smaller prims with a given measure are needed to pack the model. They will compute volume measurements using two different methods. Students are provided a link to an online rectangular prism calculator to check their calculations. An answer key with detailed explanations is provided for this activity.
