For the past few math lessons, we have been learning about prime and composite numbers. In your own words, I would like for you to tell me what prime and composite numbers are. Please don't copy the definition down. I really want to see what you think they mean using your own words. And finally, I would like for you to tell me what the purpose of a factor tree is. Why do we use them and what do they tell us? I am not going to tell you how many sentences you need to write, but they need to be detailed sentences that get answers all of the questions. Please write 5th grade sentences. You will be graded on your answers, spelling, grammar, punctuation, and how much thought and detail you put into your answers. This is due Friday morning, not later than 8:20 am.
