Prime and Composite Numbers Chart

I created the prime and composite numbers chart to glue in our Algebra 2 interactive notebooks at the beginning of our unit on radicals.

Before we could delve into simplifying radicals, I needed to refresh my students’ memories regarding prime and composite numbers.  We color-coded a hundreds chart to keep in our notebooks for reference.

On the sides of the chart, we wrote definitions for prime and composite numbers.  Two of my students decided we should color our prime number definition the same color as our prime numbers on the chart and likewise for the composite numbers.  

Color With A Purpose.  I like it!

We used highlighters that I had ordered from Amazon.  They worked well for this activity.
