**Lesson:**3.1 – Multiplication Properties

**Subject:**Math

**Grade:**5th

**Integration of Learning Outcomes**

**Standards**

**Anticipatory Set**

**Procedures**

- Students will work in pairs.
- Write both equations on board (3 x 6 = 6 x 3). Ask which property this is (Commutative Property of Multiplication)
- Use iTools website to show both problems.

Ask: What is the associative property of multiplication? Show the problem (2x5) x 3 = 2 x (5 x 3). “What do the parenthesis mean?” (You have to do the numbers in the parenthesis first). Have students explain the Associative Property of Multiplication to a partner in their own words.

Ask: What is the Identity Property of Multiplication? Have a student raise his/her hand to answer. Have students solve the following problems on their whiteboards:

- 6 x 1 = (6)
- 187 x 1 = (187)
- 2,350 x 1 = 2,350

- 8 x 0 = (0)
- 207 x 0 = (0)
- 3,454 x 0 = (0)

Have students explain to a partner the difference between
the identity property and the zero property of multiplication.

Complete the guided practice on p. 64 as a class.

If time remains, students will make a picture representing
each property. Show a model as an
example. Students must label the
property with their pictures and use the appropriate signs.

· Drawing pictures and foldable will help visual learners or those who like/are good at art.

· Using counters/manipulatives is a hands-on activity that helps kinesthetic learners.

· Foldables are copied and labeled so students can easily follow along.

**Closure**

**Formative/Summative Assessment**

· Students will be tested on the properties at the end of the unit through a summative assessment.

· Collect exit slip as formative assessment

· Walk around and observe during group/independent work

**Reflection on Planning**

I found the foldable online and thought it was an engaging
activity to help students remember the properties. I also thought it was a
better way than taking ordinary notes.
They can glue it into their notebooks to keep and use. I also found the picture activity and I felt
that students would have fun with it, but still learn the properties.

I thought that the counter activity from the textbook was a
great idea. We haven’t had a chance to
use a lot of manipulatives outside of centers for math because the textbook
hasn’t really had too many examples. In
“Hands-on is Minds-on,” Samantha Cleaver states that students “learn from their
senses.” Hands-on activities certainly
use all senses. Using more hands-on
activities will help students become more successful. Students will also be more interested when
they can use physical objects rather than strictly listening and watching.

**Reflection of Instruction**

Students seemed to like the foldable. This will help them study. They were able to grasp the properties for
the lesson. I think they need to
continuously review the properties in order for them to stick. Students had trouble realizing the difference
between addends/sum in addition compared to factors/products in
multiplication. The identity property
may also be hard to remember. It will be
useful to continuously go back to the foldable and review the properties so it
will stick.

Students really liked that they got to use
maniuplatives. They don’t get too many
opportunities to do so, but I think it helped visual learners. They were able to figure out the answers by
using the chips.

I wass recommended this blog by my cousin. I'm not sure whetger this post is written by him as no

ReplyDeleteone else know such detailed about my trouble. You're incredible!

Thanks!
