This unit contains all the activities you will need while introducing and reviewing properties of operations at the middle school level. Introduce the associative, commutative, distributive, identity, and inverse properties of operations with a matching activity that shows how properties of operations can be used in real world situations to make problem solving easier.
Use the information learned in the introductory activity (pictured below) to fill out vocabulary flip notes for each property (pictured below). A practice page is included for each property (associative, commutative, distributive, identity, and inverse) for students to continue practice the vocabulary and the property with numeric and algebraic expressions.
There are two station work activities included. The first is a card sort that uses equivalent algebraic expressions that students group by the property used. The second activity is a game (pictured below) that uses numeric expressions. The student must rewrite the expression using one of the properties of operations or using factoring. Both stations include full answer keys and recording sheets.
A 10 question assessment is included. It has five multiple choice questions and five matching questions.
Every activity has a full answer key included, as well as a teacher guide to help you get set up for your unit! Check out the preview to see everything included!
Note: This is a unit for middle school students grades 6 through 8. Students will need to understand concepts related to equivalent expressions such as order of operations and basic factoring.
