Factoring rainbows are used in elementary math to teach children how to factor numbers.

For example: To factor 24, you would place 1 on the far left and 24 towards the far right. You draw a curve from the 1 to the 24. Next, you place all the other numbers in between that when multiplied together equal 24. You draw a curved line from each number to the other number that when multiplied equals 24. Thus a Factor Rainbow.
