Prime Numbers, a Poster

Prime Numbers - teachers posterThis maths poster lists the 25 prime numbers below 100, together with a short definition and a number of thought prompts.

It measures 21cm wide by 60cm in height, and can be used simply for information, or as a direct teaching aid. Its 'skyscraper' format makes it an ideal addition to any classroom.

It seems to me that shortly after they have learnt about squareClassroom poster for Prime Numbers numbers, some children encounter a strange fascination with prime numbers. And, in many ways, primes are the easier ones to identify and work with.

In the past, I've used it with post-it notes to cover some of the numbers - this gets the children to focus on the order and magnitude of the primes.

It works great stationed at the side of a display board.

The pdf download is spread across two A4 pages:
print, trim, glue, and... enjoy!

My weaker children struggle

My weaker children struggle with factors in general as they struggle with tables but the more able ones forget what prime numbers are when faced with a test question. This poster will keep the topic cooking for a while longer. Many thanks.

Nice One

I really like the vertical format of this.
You mention square numbers in the description. Do you have a similar sized poster with square numbers on? Triangular numbers would be useful too.
