Question:

What's the difference between a prime number and a composite number?

Answer:

A prime number only has 1 and itself as factors. 17 is an example of a prime number because only 1X17=17. A composite factor has more factors than 1 and itself. 12 is a composite number because 1x12=12, but so does 2x6 and 3x4.

Question:

What's the difference between past tense and a past participle.

Answer:

We use the past tense to show something had happened at one point in the past. For example: Bobby picked his nose yesterday. We use the past participle form of a verb to show something that started in the past but continues to the present. A past participle contains the main verb plus the helping verb have/has/had. For example: Bobby has picked his nose since first grade.

Answer:

The most effective teachers are warm demanders. They care about their students as individuals, but they have high expectations for their students. They convey those expectations through respectful feedback.
