Properties of Multiplication

Properties of Multiplication

Learning Target:

I can apply properties of multiplication as strategies to multiply and divide.

1. Commutative– It doesn’t matter what order you multiply 2 numbers. The answer is always the same. Ex: 2×3=3×2
2. Associative-When multiplying 3 or more numbers together, it doesn’t matter how you group them together. The answer will always be the same. Ex: (3×4)x7=3x(4×7)
3. Identity-When multiplying a number by 1 the answer is always the same number. Ex: 7×1=7 

4. Distributive– When multiplying 3 or more numbers, understanding that 8×7 can be broken apart by saying that 8×5=40 and 8×2=16, then adding 40+16=56 which is the same as 8×7.
