Commutative Property of Addition
a + b = b + a; two numbers can be added in either order without changing the sum.
Commutative Property of Multiplication
a X b = b X a; two numbers can be multiplied in either order without changing the product.
Two or more numbers in a product. 2 X 3 = 6, the factors are 2 and 3.
factor pairs
Two factors of a number. 18 has three factor pairs: 1 and 18; 2 and 9; 3 and 6
The answer in a multiplication problem. 2 X 3 = 6, the product is 6.
The answer in a division problem. 35/ 7 = 5, the quotient is 5.
The number that divides another number in a division problem. 35/ 7 = 5; the divisor is 7.
The number in a division problem that is being divided. 35/ 7 = 5; the dividend is 35.
even number
A number (integer- ex: 2, -2) that is divisible by two.
odd number
A number (integer- ex: 3, -3) that is not divisible by two.
prime number
A whole number greater than one that has only two whole-number factors. 2, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, ...
composite number
A whole number greater than one that has more than two factors. 4 has the factors: 1, 4 and 2.
name-collection box

rectangular array
An arrangement of objects into rows and columns that form a rectangle. All rows and columns must be filled. Each row has the same number of objects. Each column has the same number of objects.

A rectangular array that has an equal number of rows and columns.
number model
A number sentence or expression that models a number story or situation.
3 * 4 = 12 Three boys each had 4 marbles.
factor rainbow
A way to show factor pairs in a list of factors of a number. Can be used to check whether a list of factors is correct.
divisible by
If the larger of 2 counting numbers, divided by the smaller with no reminder, the larger is divisible by the smaller.
divisibility rule
A shortcut for determining whether a counting number is divisible by another counting number without actually doing the division.
turn-around rule for multiplication
A rule for solving addition and multiplication problems based on the Commutative Properties of Multiplication and Addition. For example: if you now that 6 8= 48, then by the turn-around rule you also know that 8 6 = 48.
An amount left over when one number is divided by another number
square number
The product of two factors that are the same.
exponential notation
a way to show repeated multiplication by the same factor
A number that stands for the power, or the number of times the base is to be multiplied.
square root
one of the two equal factors of a number
factor string
A counting number written as a product of two or more of its counting-number factors other than 1. The length of the factor string is the numbers in the string. 234 is a factor string for 24 with length 3.
prime factorization
A whole number expressed as a product of factors that are all prime numbers
