Description:

This lesson uses the context of a two-person game to develop the concepts of prime and composite numbers as well as strategic thinking. The game may be played on paper or with an online applet (cataloged separately). Students analyze the results of first moves to arrive at an effective game strategy. The included student worksheet (pdf) extends the range of numbers played and introduces students to abundant, deficient, and perfect numbers.
