Students 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. Students complete a worksheet on distributive property and combine like terms.
Ninth graders investigate algebraic properties.  In this Algebra I lesson, 9th graders identify the property of algebra given an example of the property. 
Full of info, this handout provides the rules, properties, and common mistakes found in an algebra course. This cheat sheet is a great resource for those hard-to-remember exponent rules and hyperbola equations, along with everything else your mathematicians need to remember. The first two pages are full of algebra topics, while the last page lists common errors and explanations. 
  • Great as a review for a big test
  • Provide as a resource for learners to keep handy during notes and homework
  • Use the margins to sketch graphs or extra notes
Students explore geometric proofs. In this math lesson, students prove the solution to an equation while using algebraic properties. Students write their own statements to be proven.
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.
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 In this algebra lesson, students review the six forms of equations of Al-Khwarizmi. They solve equations using different forms.
In this algebraic properties worksheet, students name the property illustrated in ten problems.  The solutions are not provided.
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.
Young scholars 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. Young scholars then write their own statements to prove their logic. Students then complete a series of geometric proof problems.
Students investigate and apply properties of math. In this algebra and physics lesson plan, students define important vocabulary words to create a basic understanding of keywords. They perform experiments using concepts of electricity and math.
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.
Young scholars 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.
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.
In this solving linear equations worksheet, students solve six equations and justify each step of their proofs by stating the algebraic property used.
Watch Sal employ the associative property and the power rule to simplify a complex exponential equation. This is video six in the seven-part series on the properties of exponents.
Here is the final video in a seven-part series on the properties of exponents. Sal recaps and expounds upon the properties of exponents to simplify a complex exponential equation.
Sal provides a simple example to explain what, 'raised to the 3rd power' means. This is the 5th video on the properties of exponents. It focuses on why raising exponential expression works.
In video four of the seven-part series on properties of exponents, Sal simplifies a complex exponential expression to show how to apply both the quotient property and power rule.
Here is the third video in the seven-part series focused on defining the properties of exponents. Sal defines and applies the power rule in order to simplify an exponential equation.
