"The Grapes of Math" by Gregg Tang
Students practice mental addition and use the associative and commutative properties of addition to solve problems.
Fourth graders use grid paper, M&M's, and vocabulary words, to correctly complete multiplication problems. In this multiplication lesson plan, 4th graders complete number sentences, use symbols, solve equations, and more.
Multiplication as Replication
Students explore the basic concepts of multiplication. In this multiplication lesson, students watch an episode of "Cyberchase" and then use table and construct patterns to solve multiplication problems.
How To Subtract
In this how to subtract worksheet, 1st graders read six number problems, look at the pictures, cross out the amount taken away, then write the answer.
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. This one-page instructional activity contains 13 problems.
More and More Buttons
I love lessons that use everyday objects. Using dice, scrap paper, and buttons learners create random number sets, chart the number sets made, and then use the commutative property of addition to create joining sets. This is a good lesson which really conveys the concept.
"How Many Fish in the Fishbowl?"
Students complete a math worksheet. They go over five "topsy turvey" (commutative property of addition) examples as a class and determine how many fish are in the fishbowl. They write the number sentence and then rewrite the sentence using topsy turvey.
Prime and Composite
Sixth graders practice implementing manipulative's to assess composite and prime numbers. They formulate representations of rational numbers in a variety of ways including graph paper, sieves of Eratosthenes and multiple worksheets.
Looking for Calculator Patterns: Lesson 2 of 7
Students use a web-based calculator to create and compare counting patterns using the constant function feature of the calculator.
Combining Foods: Lesson 4 of 6s
Students explore addition and comparison subtraction by modeling and recording related addition and subtraction facts for a given number.
Multiply With Tenths and Hundredths
First graders participate in a lesson that is focused on the skill of multiplication with tenths and hundredths. They use blocks that represent different place values in order to group them in the right column to read a decimal number.
Looking for Calculator Patterns
Students use a Web-based calculator to create and compare counting patterns using the constant function feature of the calculator. Students make connections between multiple representations of counting patterns reinforcing ther understanding.
Focusing on Retention: Lesson 6 of 7
Students, by playing card games and singing skip-counting songs, practice multiplication facts. They modify their multiplication charts to record the facts that they now are sure of. Communication is the Process Standard highlighted in this activity.
Commutative Property and Associative Property
Students observe and complete various math problems involving the commutative and associative properties of multiplication. They observe the teacher solve examples of each property, and complete two worksheets.
Multiplying by Using the Commutative Property
In these multiplication worksheets, students examine the use of the commutative and associative properties. They use the communative property to find the product in the first 30 problems. They read about the use of the associative property in multiplication at the top of the second page before using the property to find the product in 30 problems.
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.
In this commutative property instructional activity, students solve and complete 10 different problems by applying the commutative property to each. They rewrite each equation using the commutative property. Then, students write the reversed order on the line provided.
Exploring Properties - What is the Stock Market?
Preteens create a foldable in order to review the properties of operations. They apply their knowledge to write equivalent equations using stock market scenarios. A neat homework page is provided that has four expressions to be simplified using the distributive property, as well as a few word problems to solve. This lesson succeeds in addressing the Common Core standard that it was designed for.
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. Additional multi-sensory projects are listed.
New! Expand Linear Expressions Using the Distributive Property
The easiest way to show algebra learners how to expand linear expressions using the distributive property is with an area model. This is the second resource in a series that applies the properties of operations as strategies to develop linear expressions. It shows learners how to change subtraction to addition of a negative and use the commutative property to help gather like terms. The guided practice, extension activities, and quick quiz all come with an answer key found in the Slides.
