What are prime numbers?A Prime Number is any numbers that
can not be divided by any number other
than itself and the number one.
For example, 11 is a prime number
because there are no other numbers
other than 1 and 11 that will divide 11
Still dont get it? Take the number 12,
12 can be divided by 1 and 12 but it
can also be divided by the numbers
2, 6, 3 or 4. Therefore 12 is not a Prime
Number but 11 is!

Prime numbers and fractions made easy!
Special design of the book and game make learning prime numbers fun and easy to learn today!
math game interactively challenges you to "factor down" a number into
it’s prime numbers. Lessons start out easy and get progressively
helping you to build on your knowledge.
The math book on CD contains a clear explanation of
what prime numbers are, and then reinforces each lesson using fractions. The reason why fractions are used when teaching prime numbers is to help you to
think of larger numbers as combinations of smaller ones, smaller ones that become prime
As you get better at learning and
underdstanding prime numbers working with fractions then becomes easier and easier!

How do prime numbers help when working with fractions?
Again, consider the number 12. Twelve
easily divided by 2, 6, 3, 4 (and its most
basic factors 1 or 12). Prime numbers
help when working with fractions because
every number can be factored down to
