Factors & Multiples Doodle Notes
Factors, Multiples, LCM, and GCF: 2 page visual "doodle notes" set- visual note taking pages with interactive tasks for building stronger retention of concepts with factors, multiples, least common multiple, and greatest common factor
Boost your students' focus and memory! The blend of graphic and linguistic input in these guided visual notes helps students' brains to convert the information to long-term memory more easily.
When students color or doodle in math class, it activates both hemispheres of the brain at the same time. There are proven benefits of this cross-lateral brain activity:
- new learning
- relaxation (less math anxiety)
- visual connections
- better memory & retention of the content!
Students fill in the sheets, answer the questions, and color, doodle or embellish. Then, they can use it as a study guide later on.
- difference between a factor and a multiple
- practice and examples
- analogies & visual memory triggers
- greatest common factor
- least common multiple
- practice and examples finding LCM and GCF with 2 or 3 numbers
Check out the preview images for more detail about this item and the research behind it.
Visual note-taking strategies like sketch notes or doodle notes are based on dual coding theory. When we can blend the text input with graphic/visual input, the student brain processes the information differently and can more easily convert the new learning into long-term memory.
This strategy also integrates the left and right hemispheres of the brain to increase focus, learning, and retention!
2 pages are included, plus answer keys, samples, and info.
Reviews from other teachers:
-My students love using doodle notes! Some of the content is beyond my grade's content, but I use it as a differentiation piece for my higher level students.
-Great and engaging way to take notes on factors and multiples. Students loved the doodling and it was a great and fun way to introduce vocabulary
-This product was a great way for us to take notes, practice, and work on something out of the ordinary other than the math book. I appreciate the time put into this product. Thank you!
-This was a quick and easy way to introduce this topic to my students. They seemed to really understand it as we discussed the different aspects to the graphic. Thank you very much for this resource. I will use it again for sure.
-I used this in 4th grade to help students understand the difference between factors and multiples, it was a really great addition to our lesson.
-No matter how many times you go over GCF and LCM, there are always students who confuse the 2. I used this in 6th grade as well in 7th (to review). Students love the doodling aspect and this also goes in our math notebooks,
