This lesson teaches the viewer how to write the prime factorization of a number using methods such as a factor tree and identifying prime numbers. The goal is to be given a number and be able to figure out its prime factorization. The lesson includes examples of prime factorization for numbers such as 10, 20, 36, and 150, and shows how there are multiple correct ways to write the prime factorization. The lesson also explains how to identify if a number is prime and includes an example of using the upside down division method to find the prime factorization of a number.
