T-Chart Factors

I have been teaching factors for a long time now, and it wasn’t until I came across a picture on Pinterest that I had an Ah-ha moment!  The T-chart!  Why have I never thought of this before?  I have always modeled finding factors by listing them horizontally.  Today, I used this with my 4th grade students and they got the hang of it pretty quick.  It was a GREAT visual!

Have you used the T-chart to help students list the factors of a number?

What an awesome idea to help them go through all of their numbers. Thanks for sharing!

This is how I do factors in my class - the textbook always shows the rainbow method, but I never liked it. I think the T-chart way is more effective in helping students see the pairs of numbers and working through the list of factors.
