## Illustrate properties of operations by showing that two expressions are equivalent in a given context (e.g., using an area model for distributive property, and grouping/set models for commutative and associative properties). 0606.1.5

1. Apply the distributive property: using area models - In this lesson you will learn how to apply the distributive property by using area models.
2. Area Models for Multiplication and Division - an Annenberg lesson plan from their Learning Math series
3. Basic Number Properties: Associative, Commutative, and Distributive - explanation from Purple Math
4. Commutativity - the ability to change the order of something without changing the end result [Wikipedia]
5. Distributive Property - short animation that loops
6. Distributive Property - examples of this topic
7. Distributive Property - five slide PowerPoint show which uses animation very effectively
8. Model the Distributive Property - examples of this property.
9. Number Properties - from Online Math Learning
10. Use the distributive property to simplify numerical and variable expressions - an eleven slide PowerPoint show which use animation effectively to teach the concept
