Ninth graders investigate algebraic properties.  In this Algebra I lesson, 9th graders identify the property of algebra given an example of the property. 
Young scholars are introduced to the basic algebraic properties then build, draw and explain area models.  In this algebraic properties lesson, students work in groups to complete a worksheet then discuss what it means to be a property in algebra. Young scholars complete a worksheet on distributive property and combine like terms.
What can a middle schooler do in 90 minutes? He can practice using the commutative, associative and distributive properties of addition and multiplication. He can also simplify expressions using the commutative, associative and distributive properties. Now that's time well spent!
Students study the islamic achievement in mathematics For this algebra lesson, students review the six forms of equations of Al-Khwarizmi. They solve equations using different forms.
Middle schoolers identify and use the commutative properties of addition and multiplication.They demonstrate associative properties of addition and multiplication, and  practice the distributive property of multiplication over addition.
Eighth graders reinforce their skills with the order of operations and their knowledge of the algebraic properties in a game format.  In this eight grade mathematics lesson, 8th graders use standard playing cards and the basic operations to create one number using four cards.  Students justify their solution in written and/or oral format. 
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.
Learners consolidate and extend understanding of simple properties of the four arithmetic operations. They use these properties as an aid to easy calculation. They discover and use some more complex properties of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
Help learners translate word problems into algebraic equations. They will rewrite words using symbols and evaluate algebraic expressions using real life scenarios, animation sequences, video presentations, and activities to help students engage in learning. Activity pages are included.
Students evaluate the area of a picture frame and write algebraic representations. In this algebra lesson, students work in groups to find the area of different picture frames.  Students then write algebraic expressions and present then to the class.
Students examine their prior knowledge of algebra to explore geometric proof. In this proving supplementary and complementary lesson, students prove a solution to an equation using algebraic properties. Students then write their own statements to prove their logic. Students then complete a series of geometric proof problems.
Middle schoolers create a method for finding the area of a fame for a picture and then transfer their shared methods into algebraic expressions. They develop the algebraic language to communicate and solve problems effectively and use variables and symbols to write equations. Pupils use the computer to examine graphic representation of their equations.
Students investigate rational expressions by playing a game. In this algebra lesson, students solve rational expression using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. They apply the correct order of operation to get the answer.
Middle schoolers explore geometric proofs. In this math activity, students prove the solution to an equation while using algebraic properties. Middle schoolers write their own statements to be proven.
When comparing pricing models, young mathematical consumers, create linear equations and analyzing them graphically and algebraically. They look at the meaning of slope and intercepts, as well as the intersection points of lines. 
Students apply the correct method when distributing inside a parentheses. In this algebra lesson, students solve polynomial functions using the distributive method. They use negative distribution correctly to solve problems.
Students analyze logarithmic functions. In this algebra lesson, students rewrite exponential equation in to logarithmic expressions and vice verse. They solve problems using the properties of logs and exponential functions.
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.
First graders investigate the Commutative Property of Addition. It is introduced using models such as students, counters, balances and dominoes. They discover the order of the numbers in an addition sentence does not change the result of the sum.
First graders use various models to learn the Commutative Property of Addition. In this Commutative Property lesson, 1st graders use other students, counters, balances, and dominoes to apply the addition property. Students solve addition sentences using the property and complete measurement problems with the property.
