1.4 The Distributive Property

Standard(s):

3.OA.B5:

  • Understand properties of multiplication and the relationship between multiplication and division.  
  • Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide.  Examples: Knowing that 8 × 5 = 40 and 8 × 2 = 16, one can find 8 × 7 as 8 × (5 + 2) = (8 × 5) + (8 × 2) = 40 + 16 = 56. (Distributive property.)
6.EE.A.3:
  • Apply the properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions.
  • For example, apply the distributive property to the expression 3 (2 + x) to produce the equivalent expression 6 + 3x; apply the distributive property to the expression 24x + 18y to produce the equivalent expression 6 (4x + 3y); apply properties of operations to y + y + y to produce the equivalent expression 3y.


Essential Questions:

  • How can the properties of the real number system be used?
  • How can properties of algebra be used to describe the relationship between sets of numbers?


Learning Targets:

  • I can identify the property used. (Knowledge)
  • I can apply properties. (Application)
  • I can demonstrate the concept of equality. (Comprehension)
