Least Common Multiple - Problem Solving 3.5

Want to show advanced students a real world application for finding a Least Common Multiple? This resource shows young mathematicians one possible use for understanding the concept of LCM. In four word problems revolving around beading necklaces, students have to activate critical thinking skills to problem solve. Moreover, two of the four problems ask students to explain their thinking in writing making it an excellent Common Core or cross-disciplinary literacy resource.

I am a first year homeschool mom. I found Lesson Planet and was impressed with the amount of resources that are available online! I have been able to find content that was age appropriate and relevant to the areas my 3 kids are studying. And knowing that these are plans created by teachers makes me confident in presenting the material to my children.
