PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This 30 slide PowerPoint presentation reviews the meaning of multiplication and guides students through learning about the commutative, associative, and identity properties of multiplication. It uses animation, manipulatives,test practice, and real life examples in order to help students understand the properties and how they can help in problem solving. It is a step by step presentation that was created by Elizabeth Hill to use in her third grade classroom as a 3 day unit.

I purchased the multiplication properties powerpoint. I need to add the Zero Property and the Distributive property but I do not have permission to save. I have no problem editing, just can't save.
