Greatest Common Factor Landscaping
The Ships of the Sea Museum North Garden
As part of our greatest common factor lesson, students redesigned the North Garden of the Ships of the Sea Museum! We took on the role of a landscape architect and discovered many other ways that the 24 pear trees in the garden could be planted in a square or rectangle matrix. When we were done, we realized that our work lead us to a list of all the factors of 24! Perhaps a few of you would like to add "landscape architect" to your list of possible future careers!
