An even number is an integer that is divisible by 2 without a remainder.

## Description

An even number is an integer that can be divided by 2 without leaving a remainder. Examples of even numbers include 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10. This concept is fundamental in mathematics and helps in understanding number patterns and properties.

In mathematics, even numbers are important for various operations, including addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Understanding even numbers helps students recognize patterns and develop problem-solving skills. For example, the sum of two even numbers is always even, and the product of an even number and any integer is always even.

In real-world applications, even numbers are used in various scenarios, such as dividing objects into equal groups, pairing items, and more. For example, if you have 8 apples and want to divide them equally among 4 friends, each friend gets 2 apples, showing that 8 is an even number.

**Teacher's Script:** "Let's talk about even numbers. An even number is a number that can be divided by 2 without any leftovers. For example, 4 is an even number because we can divide it into 2 groups of 2. Can you think of other even numbers?"
