Subject: multiples vs factors
One of my students taught me a great way to remember the difference between multiples and factors. When you list factors, list them under the number so that your students will know that factors FALL. For Example 12 1 x 12 2 x 6 3 x 4 When you list multiples, list them next to the number so that your students will know that multiples MARCH. For Example 5= 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 EXC Hope this helps!
