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. This lesson is then extended to looking at complex numbers and their properties.
Use a learning activity with your youngsters in order to establish an understanding of patterns in a small addition table. Help learners recognize that adding two odd numbers will produce an even number, and adding two even numbers will also produce an even number. Alternating patterns in the table show an even number plus an odd number will produce an odd number. Teacher commentary and directions through guided practice allow learners to be exposed to the associative property of addition by visualizing the different ways to write the sum of a number.
Commutative Property and Associative Property
Students study the properties of multiplication. In this multiplication properties lesson, students study the commutative and associative properties of multiplication. Students then complete the worksheets to apply the properties and solve the problems.
Multiplying Using the Commutative and Associative Properties
Third graders practice using the commutative and associative properties. In this multiplication instructional activity, 3rd graders simplify a series of problems using multiplication sentences and complete a worksheet.
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. A second worksheet gives a more challenging option, with less explanation and eight problems. Answers are provided.
Properties of Operations as Strategies- Independent Practice Worksheet
Find examples of math properties! On each of these two worksheets, learners examine five sets of number sentences, marking the ones which demonstrate the indicated property. The first page deals with the associative property. For each of the sets, there are four sentences, and some have more than one that fit the bill. On the second page, they do the same thing while looking for the commutative property. This will work well to reveal common misconceptions about these properties.
Challenge: Parentheses, Please!
Given a string of numbers and math symbols, learners take the challenge to insert parenthesis in the proper places to reach certain solutions. This is a challenge, indeed, an engaging enrichment for those who need a little more math!
Famous Public Properties
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!
Properties of Operations
In this algebra worksheet, students identify different properties of integers and their operations. There are 30 questions with an answer key.
Properties of Numbers
Use this math worksheet to have learners are given six problems involving the distributive, commutative and associative properties of numbers.
NUMB3RS Activity: A Group of Symmetries
Students investigate the symmetries of an equilateral triangle. In this geometry lesson plan, students explore and visualize the reflection and rotational symmetries of an equilateral triangle. The activity relates the geometry of the triangle to some of the axioms commonly studied by high school students.
Properties of Multiplication
Third graders explore the properties of multiplication. In this computation lesson plan, 3rd graders participate in a drill and answer several factorization and addition problems. Students then work independently and use counters to solve multiplication problems with the same factors.
Vocabulary: Addition Terminology
In this addition terminology learning exercise, learners complete many activities where they define and match addition terminology. Students complete 11 pages of activities.
Parentheses, Please! - Enrichment 5.6
Upper graders use the Associative Property to solve problems with groups of numbers in equations with several operations. They write answers to seven problems.
The Human Calculator
Young scholars amaze their friends and families with this human calculator trick. In this algebraic activity, students use the associative property of addition to act as a human calculator and stump their volunteers. The steps to the trick, along with further investigation suggestions are listed.
Easy Worksheet: Properties
For 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 identity properties of addition and multiplication. In this addition and subtraction properties instructional activity, students explore commutative, associative, and distributive properties as they design posters that feature the properties and examples of them in use.
Properties: Commutative, Associative, and Identity
Students 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. Students put examples of each property in the corresponding quadrant. Students use twelve tiles to explore the concept of dividing by zero. Students divide the twelve tiles into various size groups.
Addition Properties and Subtraction Rules: ELL
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.
