Let us consider float division first.
Friday, September 7, Teaching the Distributive Property After having to reteach my Algebra 2 students the distributive property, I wanted to make sure my Algebra 1 students had a strong understanding of the distributive property.
Looking online for ideas, I found the idea of teaching the distributive property using combo meals. I cut them out and laminated them. Then, I glued magnets to the back. Instead, I wanted to use these again whenever I teach combining like terms using the banana rule for combining like terms.
I started off by asking students what the cheapest way to get a burger, fries, and a drink were at a fast food restaurant. I hoped they would suggest a combo meal.
While each class eventually did suggest that, many students instantly replied "The Dollar Menu.
We discussed how to write each combo meal as an algebraic expression. Of course, the students had to criticize my choices of foods for the combo meals. Apparently fritos are gross. Distributive Property Using the Concept of a Combo Meal I think my students thought that by making magnets of a certain food I was somehow endorsing it.
I only picked Diet Dr. When we talked about how many hamburgers we would get if you ordered 5 combo meals, the students knew the answer straight away.
Students could see why we would multiply everything in the combo meal by the number outside of the parentheses. But, one student wanted to argue that since there was only 1 number outside of the parentheses, we could only multiply one of the terms inside of the parentheses by that number.
I had students create a foldable with the four different variations of the distributive property.
It was nothing spectacular, but it was better than just writing down the four rules. Student example of left side page. Students created their own combo meal to demonstrate the distributive property.
Finally, I had students create their own combo meal on the left side of our INB. Students had to draw a combo meal of their own. Then, they had to write it as an algebraic expression.
Finally, they had to choose how many of that combo meal they wanted and use the distributive property.About This Quiz & Worksheet. With this quiz and worksheet, you will be able to test what you know about coterminal angles.
