Lead Speaker:

We motivate third- through eighth-grade students to master the prime factorization of numbers from 1 to 150; numbers are assigned Red, Yellow, or Blue colors based on a physical representation of the Mobius function. Student teams compete in “Flag-Way” games, running three numbers through a tree graph with 27 color-coded paths.
