New Review Properties of + and x Foldable
Clarify for young scholars the basic properties of addition and multiplication with this foldable math resource. Written on the front flaps are the terms commutative, associative, identity, and inverse with algebraic equations on the inside that model the meaning of each property for both operations.

Properties: Are You Puzzled?
Apply the concept of algebraic properties. Learners take part in a jigsaw activity that teaches them the Commutative, Associative, and Distributive Properties. They read the opener activity provided and determine whether that is the equation on their computer, then use a chart to compare properties.

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.
5 mins 6th - 8th Math CCSS: Designed
Using an online activity, elementary mathematicians demonstrate an understanding of multiplication, the distributive property, and area using both visual and symbolic representations. This task features an attractive mural that is sure to capture the attention of all learners.

Using Proof in Algebra
In this using proofs in algebra learning exercise, students solve ten different problems related to solving proofs. First, they name the property of equality that justifies each statement given. Then, students complete each proof by naming the property that justifies each statement listing the reasons and solving the equation.

Scales of Equality
Using the proportional relationship between objects on a scale and the concepts of equity and equality, learners analyze, write, and balance algebra equations. Balanced scales help the learners explore the abstract concepts involved in solving algebra equations in a concrete and visual way.
