# Math Vocab Unit 1

### Vocabulary Terms for Unit 1

Term | Definition |
---|---|

array | A grouping with rows and columns. Each row and column has the same number of objects. **** **** **** |

number model | A number sentence that models a number story . Example: 3 x 4 = 12 |

commutative property of multiplication | Two numbers can be multiplied in either order without changing the product (answer). Example: 3 x 4 = 12 4 x 3 = 12 |

factor | The smaller numbers multiplied together to get the product (answer) 4 and 3 are the factors of 3 x 4 =12 |

product | The answer when you multiply two numbers together. 12 is the product of 3 x 4 = 12 |

factor pair | Any two numbers that can be multiplied together to get a product. 3 and 4 are a factor pair of 12. So are 6 and 2. |

even number | A counting number that is divisible by 2 2,4,6,8,10,….. |

odd number | A counting number that is NOT divisible by 2 1,3,5,7,9,11…. |

divisible by | If a larger number can be divided by a smaller number with no remainder. Ex. 12 / 4 = 3. 12 is divisible by 4. 13 / 4 = 3 r1, so 13 is NOT divisible by 4. |

remainder | The amount left over when one number is divided by another. 13 / 4 = 3 r 1. R = the remainder. |

factor rainbow | A way to show factor pairs in a list of factors of a number |

quotient | The result of dividing one number by another. 12 / 6 = 2. 2 is the quotient. |

prime number | A counting number greater than 1 that can only be multiplied by 1 and itself. 2,3,5,7,11 are all prime numbers. |

composite number | A counting number greater than 1 that has more than two factors. 8 is composite because it has factors of 1,8,2, and 4. |

square number | Numbers that are the product of counting number and itself. 5 x 5 = 25. Can be shown with an exponent 25 = 52 |

exponential notation | A way to show repeated multiplication by the same factor. 23 = 2 x 2 x 2 = 8 3 is the exponent (or power). |

exponent | A small, raised number used to tell how many times the base number is used as a factor. 23 = 2 x 2 x 2 = 8 2 is the base number 3 is the exponent |

square root | The smaller number that when multiplied by itself equals a square number. The square root of 25 is 5. (5 x 5 = 25) |

factor string | A counting number written as the product of 2 or more factors other than 1. 2 x 3 x 4 = 24 There are 3 factors in this factor string. |

prime factorization | A counting number written as a product of prime number factors. 24 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 |
