How Factor Race Boosts Speed and Accuracy with Finding Factors
Factor Race is a unique game specifically designed to boost speed and accuracy with finding all the factors of a number. In each round of the game, the team leader flips over a card to reveal the target number, and all players race to see how many factors they can find in a given amount of time. They earn one point for each correct factor, one bonus point for finding ALL the factors, and another bonus point for listing the factors in order. The catch? If they include even ONE number that is not a factor of the target number, they don’t earn any points for that round! Players are highly motivated to find factors quickly, but they also learn that accuracy is as important as speed!
