# Finding the LCM

This lesson is on teaching the LCM (Least Common Multiple).

This lesson could also be used for fourth and fifth grade students.

First, you will copy the worksheet so that each student will have a copy.

Then, you will write an example on the board about LCM

Example:

Multiples of 6 - 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48, 54, 60

Multiples of 4 - 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, 36, 40

The common multiples are 12, 24, 36.

The LCM is 12.

After you have gone over the example, then you will pass out the worksheets so they can work on them independently.
