Find Associative Property of Multiplication educational ideas and activities
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.
Seventh graders use properties of addition and subtraction to solve equations. In this algebra lesson, 7th graders explore addition, subtraction and multiplication of properties as it relates to working mental math. Knowing which numbers to multiply or add first, allows the students the opportunity to compute at a faster rate.
In this simplifying expressions worksheet, 9th graders solve and complete 19 various types of problems where students select the best choice from each multiple choice item. First, they simplify a number of given expressions by using the order of operations. Then, students determine the property that justifies each expression.
For 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.
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.
Ninth graders work with the commutative, identity, associative, and distributive properties while using variables. They review the definitions of the number properties in the direct instruction section of the lesson. In the guided practice section the work on each property with variables. Finally, in the student practice section they answer questions using the chart provided.
