Tuesday, September 24, 2013For the first 30 minutes of class, we went over our test that students took on Friday. Most students did well, while some need to slow down and read questions more carefully.

Students learned about the 4 properties of multiplication today. We discussed Commutative Property, Associative Property, Identity Property and Zero Property of Multiplication. Students took the following notes:
Students then took turns at their table groups to identify each property of multiplication. I wrote a multiplication fact/property on the board and students held up cards to identify which property I wrote.
