**MULTIPLES OF NUMBERS NOT EXCEEDING 48**

Pupil’s Activities 1 – Multiples of Whole Numbers Not Exceeding 48

Sample

Multiples of 1 =

1 x 1, 1 x 2, 1 x 3, 1 x 4, 1 x 5, 1 x 6, 1 x 7, 1 x 8, 1 x 9, 1 x 10

Multiples of 2 = 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 18, 20, 22, 24, 28, ….

Multiples of 3 = 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30, 33, 36, 39, 42, 45, 48.

Multiples of 4 = 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, 36, 40, 44, 48.

Multiples of 5 = 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45.

Quick Exercise (Oral Exercise) – 10 Minutes

Complete the following,

1. 6 = 6, (_12_), (_18_), 24, (_30_), (_36_), 42, 48.

2. 7 = (_14_), (_21_), 21, 28, (_35_), (_42_).

Teacher’s/Pupil’s Activities 2 – Successive Addition

Teacher’s comments – Multiples of numbers can be obtained by successive addition. For example, Multiples of 6 not exceeding 48.

6 = 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48.

1 x 6 = 6

2 x 6 = 6 + 6 = 12

3 x 6 = 12 + 6 = 18

4 x 6 = 18 + 6 = 24

5 x 6 = 24 + 6 = 30

6 x 6 = 30 + 6 = 36

7 x 6 = 36 + 6 = 42

8 x 6 = 42 + 6 = 48, stop.

Multiples of 7

= 7, 7 + 7, 14 + 7, 21 + 7, 28 + 7, 35 + 7, 42 + 7

= 7, 14, 21, 28, 35, 42, 49. Stop at 42 because 49 has exceed 48.

**Note – Assist pupils to make use of their fingers if not more 10 and other counting materials if above 10.**

Pupil’s Activities 3 – Class Exercise/Take Home

Find the multiples of the following numbers not exceeding 48,

1. 2 = 2, 4,

2. 4 = 4, 8,

3. 6 = 6,

4. 8 = 8,

5. 10 =

**LESSON TWO – FACTORS OF NUMBERS NOT EXCEEDING 48**

Teacher’s/Pupil’s Activities 1 – Factors as the Product of Two Numbers

Working Examples,

1. 2 x 5 = 10

10 is the product of 2 and 5.

While 2 and 5 are the factors of 10, because

10 ÷ 2 = 5

10 ÷ 5 = 2

2. 3 x 4 = 12

12 is the product 3 and 4. While 3 and 4 are known as the factors of 12.

Teacher’s remark – When two or more numbers are multiplied together the number obtained is called the product of those numbers. The factors of a given number are the numbers that can divide the given number without remainder.

Pupil’s Activities 2 – Class Exercise/Take Home

Find the factors of the following numbers,

1. 12 = 2 x (__)

2. 10 = (__) x 5

3. 20 = (__) x 4

4. 36 = 9 x (__)

5. 8 = (__) x 2

**LESSON THREE – FACTORS OF NUMBERS NOT EXCEEDING 48**

**Pupil’s Activities 1 – Factors as the Products Two or More Numbers **

Teacher’s comments – A number can have more than two factors.

1 is a factor of itself and of all numbers.

2 = 1 x 2, 2 x 1

1 and 2 are factors 2.

3 = 1 x 3, 3 x 1

1 and 3 are factors of 3.

4 = 1 x 4, 4 x 1, 2 x 2

1, 2 and 4 are factors of 4.

6 = 1 x 6, 6 x 1, 2 x 3, 3 x 2

1, 2, 3 and 6 are factors of 6.

**Guides pupils to express the numbers as products of two numbers.**

Teacher’s/Pupil’s Activities 2 – Working Examples

Find the factors of 12 and 18.

12 = 1 x 12

12 = 2 x 6

12 = 3 x 4

12 = 4 x 3

12 = 6 x 2

12 = 12 x 1

Factors of 12 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 12.

18 = 1 x 18

18 = 2 x 9

18 = 3 x 6

18 = 6 x 3

18 = 9 x 2

18 = 18 x 1

Factors of 18 are 1, 2, 3, 6, 9 and 18.

Pupil’s Activities 3 – Class Exercise/Take Home

Find the factors of the following,

1. Factors of 20 =

20 = (__) x 20

20 = 2 x (__)

20 = (__) x 5

20 = 5 x (__)

20 = 10 x (__)

20 = (__) x 1

2. Factors of 36

36 = (__) x 36

36 = 2 x (__)

36 = (__) x 12

36 = 4 x (__)

36 = 6 x (__)

36 = (__) x 4

36 = (__) x 3

36 = 18 x (__)

36 = 1 x (__)

**LESSON FOUR – ****QUANTITATIVE REASONING **

As stated in the quantitative books or textbooks.

**PRESENTATION**

To deliver the lesson, the teacher adopts the following steps:

1. To introduce the lesson, the teacher revises the previous lesson. Based on this, he/she asks the pupils some questions;

2. Guides pupils to write out multiples of a given number e.g. multiple of 3 = 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18.

3. Guides pupils in expressing whole numbers not exceeding 48 as product of their factors.

4. Leads pupils distinguish between factors and multiples of given numbers.

5. Emphasizes the need to be accurate in carrying out divisions in everyday activities.

6. Leads pupils to give examples of everyday activities where correct division is needed.

Pupil’s Activities – Follow the teacher’s guidelines and lead to find multiples and factors of numbers.

**CONCLUSION**

To conclude the lesson for the week, the teacher revises the entire lesson and links it to the following week’s lesson.

**LESSON EVALUATION **

**Pupils to:**

1. express given whole numbers not exceeding 48 as products of their factors.

2. construct rectangular pattern of numbers and use same to find factors of given numbers.

3. find missing factor of a given number.

4. distinguish between factors and multiples of given numbers.
