Teacher, do your students have access to computers such as tablets, iPads or Laptops? This page was really designed for projection on a whiteboard but if you really want the students to have access to it here is a concise URL for a version of this page without the comments: Transum.org/go/?Start=January1 However it would be better to assign one of the student interactive activities below. 

Here is the URL which will take them to a related student activity.
Students could use a spreadsheet to find the answers to these questions. Use the help menu in your spreadsheet and look up "dates" to discover how to do these calculations.

Justin Thyme has made a New Year's resolution in 2024 to go jogging on days in January after the 1st of the month. He will jog on a day only if its date is neither a multiple of any date on which he has already jogged nor a factor of 2024. How many days in January will Justin be able to go for a jog?
