Description:

This Focus on Math blog post presents a dot diagram by Brent Yorgey of the consecutive natural numbers. The configuration of each number of dots reveals quickly whether it is prime or composite and provides information about its prime factorization. Included are two links: one to Stephen Von Wordley's animated factorization diagrams and the other to Malke Rosenfeld's blog describing a game based on the diagram.
