Building Blocks


This prompt is around the visualisation of prime decomposition.  I’m not convinced by the colours I’ve used, as in the last section this could be thought of differently.  I’d offer this as a prompt and then ask pupils to generate their own building block using division by primes.  This could then act as a lead into prime decomposition.  Further it may also provide a platform for new insights into multiplicative relationships for some pupils. Also links into area.
