Fifth graders observe and demonstrate a variety of ways to recall their basic multiplication facts and the different properties of multiplication. They discuss and examine how multiplication is repeated addition, complete a multiplication chart, and read and discuss multiplication stories.
Students study the commutative and multiplicative properties and play a multiplication game. In this multiplication lesson students find products of factors containing 6 or 7. Students practice with the commutative property, multiply by 1 and 0, practice multiplication facts of 6 and 7, and create learning tool for multiplication.
In this addition properties worksheet, 7th graders review the commutative property, associative property, and identity property. Students then evaluate the algebra equations using one of the addition properties and identify the property used. Students then use a greater than, less than, or equal to sign to make each statement true for the second set of equations and complete one word problem.
Seventh graders practice using different types of properties for algebra, The properties include the commutative and distributive. They must differentiate when it is appropriate to use each. Students master the properties to progress in the simplification of mathematical number sentences.
Eighth graders examine the commutative, identity, associative, and distributive properties with variables. They practice solving equations using variables while identifying each property. Finally, they complete tables by adding the name of the property or the value of the variable.
Ninth graders investigate the different properties of numeration found in an introduction to algebra. They use the identity, commutative, associative, and distributive in the appropriate situation. The lesson has a hands on component to help the kinesthetic learning style.
Second graders work with a partner using objects to solve problems. They show their work on paper and write sentences clearly to show their thinking and the steps necessary. They then switch the numbers around after solving the problem again using the same numbers in the addition problem.
