Complex Number Properties
High schoolers experiment with complex numbers to see which properties of real numbers apply to the system of complex numbers and practice computations. The study of these properties is first explored by looking at rotational transformations and completing a chart of the rotations.
10th - 12th Math CCSS: Adaptable
Bring this easy shortcut to your first grade addition lesson! By adding doubles (6+6, for example), and then adding or subtracting 1, kids learn how to solve simple addition problems with ease. This trick is especially helpful for pupils who have a hard time memorizing numbers or solving addition problems cognitively.

Properties of Real Numbers
Students use paper cups and colored chips to observe properties of operations with real numbers. As a class, students brainstorm and use manipulatives to demonstrate associative, commutative, distributive identity and inverse properties. In groups, they write a "properties poem" and create a slide show explaining the properties.

Properties of Addition and Multiplication
Middle schoolers examine equations and identify the property that is exemplified. They select from the commutative property of addition and multiplication, the associative property of addition and multiplication, distributive property, identity property of addition and multiplication and the inverse property of addition and multiplication.
6th - 8th Math
Properties of Multiplication
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.
