## Factors + Dancing

This is a mesmerizing visualization of the prime factorization of the natural numbers. If you go to Stephen Von Worley’s site Data Pointed you get the full experience along with the ability to pause and skip forward and back. It would be very interesting to give these diagrams to students and see if they could produce a next in series diagram. If they could do that, the diagrams could be used as a way to introduce primes and prime factorizations.

I stumbled on it via Teq another great blog.
