Students identity properties of addition and multiplication. In 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 identity property of addition worksheet, students complete a total of 10 simple, 1-digit problems. Page has multiple links to additional resources.
In this identity property of addition worksheet, students complete a set of 16 simple 1-digit problems. Page has multiple links to additional resources.
In this identity property of addition worksheet, students complete a set of 16 simple 1-digit problems. Page has multiple links to additional resources.
Identifying patterns is a crucial skill for all mathematicians, young and old. Explore the multiplication table with your class, using patterns and symmetry to teach about square numbers, prime numbers, and the commutative and identity properties of multiplication. A great resource for strengthening number sense and fluency with multiplication. 
Learners solve problems using the inverse. For this algebra lesson, students apply the identify property to find the reciprocal and opposites of integers. They relate the concept of inverses to the real world.
Students investigate the use of multiplication properties. In this multiplication properties lesson plan, students review basic multiplication facts while working in pairs. They work in groups to tell which multiplication property is shown on each of 6 flash cards such as the commutative, associative, zero, or identity property.
In this multiplication worksheet, learners solve 4 story problems that pertain to the zero and identity properties of multiplication.
These multiplication problems give scholars a chance to display their knowledge of math properties. They use the zero property to solve one problem, write a related multiplication fact for a division problem, and complete a final equation with the identity property. Each question has a visual which may help certain learners. Because the text and graphics are so large, this may be ideal to project as an all-class warm up.
Part of building solid number sense is understanding the laws and properties of multiplication and addition. Elementary school students can watch Sal multiply using the number 1. He explains that 1x any number equals that number. He provides several examples that show the Identity Property of 1.
Using the identity property of 0, Sal evaluates the expression 0+y+ (-7). He uses multiple colors and number lines, while providing a complete explanation of his thinking process.
For this inverse and identity problems worksheet, students solve and complete 10 different multiple choice problems. First, they determine which expression shows the identity property of addition and also of multiplication. Then, students find the value of the variable that makes the equation true.
In this properties worksheet, students read the information chart and learn the commutative, associative and identity properties of multiplication and addition. Students solve 5 problems.
In this multiplication properties worksheet, 5th graders review the associative, commutative, distributive, and identity properties using the information given at the top of the page. They write the name of the property in 4 examples, and find n in 2 problems.
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.
Third graders explore multiplication facts. In this multiplication lesson, 3rd graders examine methods for memorizing multiplication facts as they discuss and attempt 2 methods and play a multiplication game.
Students examine characteristics of a matrix. After identifying the determinant of a matrix, students explore the properties of matrix multiplication. They review the properties of matrix multiplication and identify determinants in a matrix.
Knowing the multiplicative properties of 1 and 0 makes life much easier for young mathematicians. Examples are provided in the third video of this series that clearly demonstrate the use of these properties in real world contexts. A Guided Practice video is also included that provides an opportunity for learners to demonstrate their understanding of these special properties. A great addition to an introductory unit on multiplication.
Eleventh graders learn how to use a consumer application to discover the algorithm for multiplying matrices. Then they explore the commutative, associative, identity and inverse properties for matrix multiplication.
Identity properties are operations to numbers that keep the numbers exactly the same. What? Does this sound confusing? The teacher explains all of the identity properties: 0 is the additive identity, and 1 is the multiplicative identity.
