Associative Property of multiplication Teacher Resources
Find teacher approved Associative Property of Multiplication educational resource ideas and activities
Middle schoolers add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers. They find the square and the cube of numbers. They create a game incorporating computation on rational numbers. Everyone works together to write and evaluate expressions. Note: the associate video is only available via purchase, but the other activities hold enough value to support the lesson without it.
These equations are missing numbers, and scholars must process multiple operations to complete them. There are addition, multiplication, and division problems here, each missing an addend, divisor, or factor. After completing 24 of these problems, pupils move on to equivalent equations, adding in missing numbers in eight problems demonstrating the associative and distributive properties. Unfortunately, these aren't numbered. Consider numbering the problems yourself before reproducing the activity in order to make review easier.
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.
What can a middle schooler do in 90 minutes? He can practice using the commutative, associative and distributive properties of addition and multiplication. He can also simplify expressions using the commutative, associative and distributive properties. Now that's time well spent!
In this worksheet, young mathematicians translate words into algebraic expressions. They define variables and write expressions for a given phrase. They identify numbers as rational or irrational, simplify expressions, solve basic matrix problems, and review the coordinate system and properties of real numbers. This six-page worksheet contains 40 problems. It provides a good review of basic algebra concepts.
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.
