## Multiplying Larger NumbersUsing the Distributive PropertyLevel 1

This one page worksheet uses the Distributive Property to multiply larger numbers.

Key concept: Students should know that a number can be taken apart and operations can be changed to create an easier problem that produces

## The Distributive Propertyof MultiplicationWord Problems – Level 2

This one page worksheet uses the distributive property of multiplication to solve word problems.

Key concept: Students should know how to use the distributive property to help solve multiplication problems quicker.

These one page, art worksheets review the distributive property. Level one has students fill in the blanks, and level 2 and 3
has them solve equations. The drawing is the same but the questions are different for each level.

## Associative Property of AdditionLevel 1

This one page worksheet introduces the associative property. It explains how we can change groups (move parentheses) in a problem to
make it easier to solve.

Key concept: Students need to understand that the order does not matter when adding. Numbers and groups can be moved to
help us simplify a problem or make it easier to solve.

## Associative Property of MultiplicationLevel 1

This one page worksheet introduces the associative property. It shows that we can change groups (move parentheses) to make problems
easier to solve.

Key concept: Order does not matter when multiplying. Numbers and groups can be moved to help simplify a problem or make it easier to solve.

## Associative Property – Level 2

This one page worksheet covers the associative property. It explains how we can change groups (move parentheses) in a problem to simplify
it. Includes variables.

Key concept: Students need to understand that the order does not matter when adding or multiplying. Numbers and groups can be moved to
help us simplify a problem or make it easier to solve.

## Simplifying Expressions – Level 1

This one page worksheet covers simplifying expressions. Students need to combine like terms using basic arithmetic and the associative,
commutative, and distributive properties.

Student misunderstanding: To combine terms they need to have the same variable or no variable at all (constant).

## Simplifying Expressions – Level 2

This one page worksheet continues simplifying expressions. Students need to combine like terms using basic arithmetic and the associative,
commutative, and distributive properties. It includes using the distributive property with fractions.

Student misunderstanding: If terms differ in at least one variable, then they are unlike terms and cannot be combined.

## Simplifying Expressions – Level 3

This one page worksheet finishes simplifying expressions. It includes using the distributive property with fractions and
multiple variable and square terms. Students need to combine like terms using basic arithmetic and the associative, commutative, and distributive properties.

Student misunderstanding: After simplifying fractions don’t forget to distribute any negative signs or numbers.

These one page worksheets have students use the distributive, associative, and commutative properties to simplify expressions.
The drawing is the same but the shading and questions are different for each worksheet.
