   Math:       Wall Math - 9 questions this week.  We added factors and multiples.
                       **Factors are numbers that multiply together to
                           make that number.  (Factors are equal to the number and smaller.)
                                                       Example:         10 = 1 x 10 or  2 x 5
                                                        so . . . the factors of 10:  1, 2, 5, 10
                      **Multiples are numbers that the number will go into evenly.  There
                          are a never ending number of multiples. (Multiples are equal to or
                          larger than the number.)
                          Example:  multiples of 3 are:  3, 6, 9, 12, 15 . . .
   Spelling:    study & story due Thursday
