Instructional Ideas

  • Use the resource to develop a lesson presentation
  • Have classes create foldable books to record the different properties and examples
Classroom Considerations

  • Learners have difficulty with understanding the importance of knowing properties; provide non-examples of the properties to show what happens when properties are applied incorrectly
  • Begins an 11-part series on basic algebraic concepts
Pros

  • Provides a comprehensive list of key algebraic properties for this level
  • Includes examples of common mistakes and a set of practice problems
Cons

  • Does not include discovery, inquiry, or application to help pupils make connections to the material
  • Missing an answer key for practice problems
