Prime Numbers Chart - Prime Numbers Under 100

I originally created this prime numbers chart for my pre-calculus students to use as a reference while simplifying radicals. My students used this chart as a quick way to tell if a number was prime since they knew that if a radical had a prime radicand that it would never simplify. 

It has a wide range of other uses in the middle school and high school math classroom. I also included this printable prime numbers chart along with a few other math charts for my students to use as a reference to create a foldable reference chart for my high school math students to reference. Also included are pythagorean triples, factors of 1-100, perfect squares, and perfect cubes.

What is a Prime Number Chart? 

This prime number chart is a number grid (specifically a hundreds chart) which has each of the prime numbers under 100 highlighted in gray. The non-highlighted numbers (other than 1) are composite numbers. The number 1 is neither prime nor composite.

Uses for Prime Number Charts

  • Determining if a number is prime or composite 
  • Identifying Radicals which do not Simplify 
  • Finding the Prime Factorization of a Natural Number
  • Finding Common Denominators – If One of the Denominators is Prime, you will need to multiply the two denominators to find a common denominator.

Create Your Own Prime Number Chart

Do you want to have students create their own prime number chart? I offer several free printable number charts which could easily be color-coded to create prime and composite numbers charts. 

You could also have students work through a Sieve of Eratosthenes activity to determine if given numbers are prime or composite.
