Starting mathematicians demonstrate strategies to add two or more numbers. In this computation lesson, learners use cubes to represent the associative property of addition and practice adding several numbers together. They also view an included PowerPoint presentation on strategies of addition.
A straightforward definition of the associative property of addition and multiplication, this resource could be used to help learners tackle the concept. You might consider giving the link to struggling class members so they can use it for reference as they complete homework and review for tests and exams.
Learners identify and define the rules of properties of real numbers. They rewrite each of the problems listed using the commutative or associative properties. Pupils apply problem solving strategies to clarify situations in a table provided and justify logical statements. Everyone describes how to use the distributive property to divide and subtract.
Pupils identify and define various mathematical properties, such as the commutative properties of addition and multiplication, and the associative property of addition. They also reason and communicate mathematically by making mathematical connections. Finally, learners create their own simple array and exchange with a partner.
