1. Dear Miss Hunichen,
‘Prime Factors’ was a very interesting game. It showed the difference between prime numbers and composite numbers. And it also helped me to understand what factors were again.
I found that the game was very helpful for me to understand all the things I stated before, though I did find that the same problem would appear quite often, and that I would end up with the same solution that I got before because there was no other solution for it. Beside that it was a very good game and I think everyone should try it out at least once.

2. Hi Miss Hunichen,
I enjoyed playing the factor tree game because I found it fun, challenging and interesting.

Last year with Mrs Condon we did a similar thing, except we wrote it on paper and didn’t do it in a factor tree form and Mrs Condon gave us numbers that it would take a while to get to the prime number.

I disliked it when a number like 82 came up to start off with because all I knew that would divide evenly into 82 was 2, and then 41 came up as well so that factor tree was finished because 41 is a prime number.

I also found that the square for the composite number and the circle was helpful so that you knew when a branch or tree was finished.

I enjoyed playing this game because it helped me practice my prime number and factor skills in an easy fun way.
