There are several properties that apply to multiplying real numbers. Learning these rules helps to create a foundation for understanding the operations of multiplication. This tutorial will demonstrate two of these operations: the multiplication property of 0 and the multiplication property of -1.
Watch this tutorial for a quick explanation of the multiplication property of equality. Important for solving equations, this property is essential for pupils to master. Class members might watch this in class or at home for extra instruction or as a complement to a lesson on the property.
In this multiplication properties reteaching worksheet, 5th graders review 5 properties using the information given in the box at the top of the page. They write the name of the property shown in 4 problems, and find n in 2 equations. They tell which property they used in the final 2 equations.
In this multiplication properties worksheet, students determine which multiplication property to use to solve the first problem and explain why the Associative Property is the best way to evaluate the second problem. Students then write the expression from the box that represents the last three multiplication property questions.
In this multiplication properties worksheet, students use multiplication properties to complete the first set of expressions and identify each property used. Kids then evaluate the second set of expressions using the given variables. In the third set, students compare the expressions and finish with two test prep questions using multiplication properties.
Students use logical arguments and inductive reasoning to make or disprove conjectures. After observing a teacher led demonstration, students discover that the deductive process narrows facts to a few possible conclusions. In groups, they match definitions to a corresponding property. Students create a PowerPoint of vocabulary words, draw illustrations of mathematical properties, and use a FISH diagram to illustrate information.
Young mathemeticians observe and demonstrate how to use the commutative and identity properties of multiplication. They discuss the two multiplication properties, and as a class solve examples of each. Next, they complete a multiplication chart and with a partner test each other on the multiplication facts.
Fifth graders examine the processes of multiplication and explore the relationship between addition and multiplication. They observe the teacher model examples of the multiplication properties, illustrate number sentences, and use the multiplication properties to complete a multiplication chart.
Fifth graders examine the process of multiplication and the relationship between addition and multiplication. They observe the teacher model a variety of problems on the board, and identify properties of multiplication. Students independently complete a multiplication chart using the multiplication properties.
So what do you do when you have to solve an equation that has a negative variable? There are a couple of ways to solve this problem. In this video, the instructor first demonstrates how to use the multiplication property of -1 to get rid of the negative in front of the variable. She then uses the addition rule of equality to isolate the variable to solve the equation.
Students investigate the use of multiplication properties. In this multiplication properties lesson, 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.
Seventh graders explore the concept of properties. In this properties instructional activity, 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.
In this solving equations worksheet, 9th graders solve and complete 14 different problems that include multiplication and division. First, they solve each equations using either the multiplicative property of equality of the division property of equality. Then, students define a variable, write an equation, and solve each problem.
