Twins I have a twin sister. We share everything, but sometimes when we share things, it doesn’t come out even. She gets more than me. I wonder why that happens.

Look at these marbles. Will my sister and I get the same number of marbles?

We found that if numbers  make pairs, we can share them evenly. We call these even numbers.

 Mine Sister's Left over Even or Odd 2 even 4 even 6 even

All numbers that make pairs but have 1 left over are called odd numbers.

 Click only the even numbers on this chart.

 Odd Even 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Even numbers are used when counting by 2s.

Now that we know about odd and even numbers by looking at pairs and by counting by 2s, let’s look at some really large numbers.

436,973,751

Wow! That is a really big  number. Is it odd or even?

No matter how large or small the number, we can look at the digit in the ones place to know if the whole number is odd or even.
 Odd Even 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

4,927

The 7 in the ones place is odd so the whole number is odd.

I think I've got it!

Let’s practice a few more just to be sure we can tell if a number is odd or even.
 3,089 22 64,241 907 5,300

 There are two of us so we are an even number.
 BUT There’s only one of you.  Are you odd?
