Sample Classroom Procedure / Teacher Instruction

  1. Ask: When you hear the word property, what do you think of?
  2. Allow for responses and discussion. Ask students what the word property means to them when it is used in mathematics.
  3. Allow for responses and discussion. Introduce math properties.
  4. Distribute Math Properties content pages. Read and review the information with the students. Use the additional resources to enhance understanding.
  5. Distribute Activity page. Read and review the instructions. Distribute scissors. Circulate through the room checking for understanding. Once students have completed the activity, allow each student to exchange with a peer for correction. Allow volunteers to display an example for each property using the board or other method. Ask students which property is the most difficult to remember. Ask students if they can think of a pneumonic device to help remember the property terms.
  6. Allow for responses and discussion.
  7. Distribute Practice page. Check and review the students’ responses.
