Hi, There is a site for perfect numbers at the Ask Dr. Math site: http://mathforum.org/dr.math/faq/faq.perfect.html There is also a site for all types of numbers: abundant, amicable, etc. at http://mathforum.org/dr.math/faq/faq.number.glossary.html The difficulty in teaching perfect numbers to sixth graders is that there are not too many perfect numbers less than 500: only three 6, 28, and I think 496! You might find more materials at the second site. Perfect numbers are related to divisibility and factors so the topic is appropriate for the age level. -Marielouise, for the Teacher2Teacher service
