Title of Lesson:
Divisibility Rules

## Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills/Standards:

Number and operations. The student applies mathematical process standards to develop and
use strategies and methods for whole number computations to solve problems with efficiency
and accuracy. The student is expected to determine if a number is even or odd using divisibility
rules.

Objective/Purpose:
Determine whether a whole number is divisible by the numbers 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, 10 using only
divisibility rules and no calculators.

Introduce Lesson:
Students have prior addition skills, an understanding of even and odd numbers, and understand
the concept of division. Students will gain an understanding of the new material with the use of
an example that is to be gone over with the class by the sub.

Example:
Without using a calculator, test 265,452 for divisibility by 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, 10
Write this number on the board as well as the numbers 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, 10.
Write the divisibility rules listed below on the board.
Divisible by 2 If the number ends in an even number which is 0, 2, 4, 6, 8
Divisible by 3 If the sum of digits of the number is a multiple of 3
Divisible by 4 If the last two digits of the number is a multiple of 4
Divisible by 5 If the number ends in a 5 or 0
Divisible by 6 If the number is divisible by both 2 and 3
Divisible by 9 If the sum of digits of the number is a multiple of 9
Divisible by 10 - If the number ends in a 0
Discuss and complete this example together as a class. The correct answer is: 265,452 is divisible
by 2, 3, 4, and 6.
Lesson:
Using the example, show the students the divisibility rules and how to apply them. The students
will complete the practice on the website provided below.
