Learners explore the concept of addition and multiplication properties. In this addition and multiplication properties lesson, students create a foldable with the properties commutative, associative, identity, and distributive written in four quadrants. Learners put examples of each property in the corresponding quadrant. Students use twelve tiles to explore the concept of dividing by zero. Learners divide the twelve tiles into various size groups.
Learners identity properties of addition and multiplication. For this addition and subtraction properties lesson, students explore commutative, associative, and distributive properties as they design posters that feature the properties and examples of them in use.
In this ELL addition property and subtraction rule worksheet, students read about the commutative and associative properties, then underline the correct term in 7 sentences. Houghton Mifflin text is referenced.
Students study the commutative and associative properties. In this multiplication lesson, students review the properties and solve several multiplication problems.
In this addition property activity, students review the definitions for commutative, zero, and associative property. Students then find the sums using the properties for the nine problems.
Students create a shape sorter and consider all possible moves that will return a shape to its original position. They investigate the results when two of these moves are performed consecutively, to learn about the commutative and associative properties.
Pupils use the associative property to solve six pairs of multiplication of three numbers problems. A good, solid instructional activity.
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, students solve 8 short answer and multiple choice questions. Students determine which algebraic property is represented by the given example.
Third graders investigate word problems that demonstrate the commutative and associative properties for addition. The teacher guides the students through an initial discussion of a variety of strategies for solutions, informally assessing students' working knowledge.
Middle schoolers identify and use the commutative properties of addition and multiplication.They demonstrate associative properties of addition and multiplication, and  practice the distributive property of multiplication over addition.
Seventh graders discuss the associative property of math. They are to find examples of the property and others. They also write in their journals about what they learned.
In this properties activity, students complete 4 matching problems regarding recognizing properties. Students then simplify 10 problems by combining like terms.
In this associative property learning exercise, students solve 10 different problems that include using the associative property to solve each one. First, they rewrite each equation by using the associative property. Then, students solve each equations by following the order of operations and writing their answer on the line provided.
Students identify the different properties of integers. In this algebra instructional activity, students solve problems using the correct order of operation. They differentiate between associative and commutative properties and give examples to prove their answers.
An addition table supports third graders as they learn strategies to improve their math fluency. When finding sums greater than ten, students are taught how to first make a ten and then add on the rest. A similar method is also introduced for adding nine to a single-digit number. Use as a guided practice activity, modeling each approach for the class before allowing them time to work independently.
Use diagramming to multiply three numbers together in this fourth of a series of five on using operations to multiply and divide. A visual sample reviews the commutative property of addition, and then applies the concept to a multiplication word problem. The word problem is put into a number sentence and solved in a variety of ways.
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.
Watch Sal employ the associative property and the power rule to simplify a complex exponential equation. This is video six in the seven-part series on the properties of exponents.
Having a good working knowledge of math vocabulary is so important for learners as they progress through different levels of mathematical learning. Here is 125 pages worth of wonderfully constructed vocabulary and concept review cards.  This is a fantastic resource that you can use throughout the school year.
  • Display cards and change them out as you progress through different topics
  • Use the cards as review throughout the year to remind students of past learning
  • Laminate the cards and allow students to sort them into topics they definitely understand, somewhat understand, and don't yet understand
