### Activities for Exploring Number Sets

1) Who Has a Number Bingo Board:

Who Has a Number Bingo Board and Vocabulary Review (below) available here.

2) Students work in groups to review and learn vocabulary associated with number sets. (I plan to do the vocabulary review first to help student activate prior knowledge before playing the Bingo game above.)

3) Number Sets Search found on End of Year Resources post from Resourceaholic which came from here.

4) Number Experts: a Bitesize Gem from Resourceaholic.com: Assign a number to each student. They become an expert in that number, creating a display and giving a presentation about its interesting properties.

5) Find the Factors: I think these puzzles are brilliant and plan to use these during the first week of school to help my students practice their multiplication facts.

• Stand when the number is prime; sit if it is composite
• Stand when the number is even; sit if it is odd
• Stand when the number is a multiple of 3; sit if it is not a multiple of 3
• Stand when the number is a factor of 24; sit if it is not a factor of 24
• Stand when the number is a perfect square; sit  if it is not a perfect square

Try to "trick" the students by standing up or sitting down when they should be doing the opposite.
