Third graders discover the associative property of multiplication. In this multiplication lesson, 3rd graders explore visual examples of using the commutative and associative properties of multiplication. They also practice solving problems that their instructors model.
Students solve math problems. In this multiplication lesson, students review the multiplication facts for factors 0 through 10. Students learn and practice the associative property of multiplication.
Numbers with lots of zeros, lots and lots of zeros. Decimal points to the left and decimal points to the right. Now multiply these numbers. Daunting. There's a shorter way to do it, use scientific notation. The teacher demonstrates just how to use scientific notation and the associative property of multiplication to solve this problem.
Here is a new twist on teaching the associative property of multiplication. The author of this presentation makes an analogy between the associative property and a couple getting married. The numbers, like people, are separate, but when they are in parenthesis, like a married couple, they are considered one. This is a well thought out and interesting way to think about this concept, and could be useful for some students.  
Pupils use the associative property to solve six pairs of multiplication of three numbers problems. A good, solid activity.
Properties of multiplication can get confusing, and are incredibly important to mathematicians. This worksheet is helpful in that it first explains the properties (commutative, associative, and distributive), giving examples of each. Then, scholars complete six multiple-choice problems during which they must choose the equation which shows the property listed. A second worksheet gives a more challenging option, with less explanation and eight problems. Answers are provided.
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.
In this properties worksheet, 10 short answer problems are solved. Learners name the property illustrated such as the inverse property or associative property of multiplication.
Seventh graders explore the concept of properties. In this properties lesson, 7th graders discuss the various math properties including the commutative, associative, distributive, multiplication properties and so on. Students create foldables with examples of various properties.
Students observe and complete various math problems involving the commutative and associative properties of multiplication. They observe the teacher solve examples of each property, and complete two worksheets.
Students study the properties of multiplication. In this multiplication properties activity, students study the commutative and associative properties of multiplication. Students then complete the worksheets to apply the properties and solve the problems.
What does baking cupcakes have to do with multiplication? Watch this video and find out as your class learns that multiplication is the repeated addition of equal groups. Properties of multiplication are also introduced with illustrations that reinforce their meaning. Includes key vocabulary and a short assessment; making this a great resource to transition students from addition to multiplication. 
Length times width times height. Yes, the formula for the volume of a rectangular shape. But the values are monomials. Use the knowledge you have to multiply the monomials and then write it in simplest form.
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.

There is a step-by-step example here to help young multipliers solve 12 equations, all of which have one 2-digit and one 1-digit factor. The method displayed encourages breaking the two-digit number into tens and ones, multiplying each out and adding the products for the final answer. Each problem has plenty of room for learners to show work, but you might consider numbering them for smoother review.
Using an online activity, elementary mathematicians demonstrate an understanding of multiplication, the distributive property, and area using both visual and symbolic representations. This task features an attractive mural that is sure to capture the attention of all learners. 
Help third graders make sense of the Common Core math standards with this simple checklist. By rewording each standard as an I can statement, children are provided with clear goals to focus on as they participate in math lessons.
  • Post an enlarged copy of the checklist in the classroom, serving as a reference for students and teacher alike
  • Make individual copies of the checklist for each student to keep in their math folder, allowing them to monitor their progress throughout the year
Support young mathematicians' interpretation of place value in order to multiply single-digit numbers by 10. The task builds upon and enhances a learners' understanding of place value, a second grade skill, while introducing them to products of single and two-digit multiplication. The learning activity can be used as guided practice or independent practice, in which base-ten blocks and a number line are necessary tools.
Explore patterns in the multiplication table in order to deepen your third graders' understanding of this essential skill. Implement this activity as a whole-class lesson, allowing students to work in pairs or small groups to support discovery of key ideas. An understanding of even/odd numbers as well as a solid grasp of multiplication is essential for success with the concepts addressed. If appropriate for you class, use this as a chance to introduce the commutative and associative properties of multiplication.
