This is a quarter-page sized, no staple booklet of the Algebraic Properties. This is the pdf version, but once purchased, feel free to email me for the original editable version. My email is on the directions sheet. This product includes cut and fold directions, student fill-in-the blank booklet, and teacher answer key booklet.
There is a student friendly definition, algebraic notation, examples, and mnemonic for each property. This product was designed for a geometry classroom. Examples of properties include both algebraic and geometric examples.
Properties included: Transitive, Symmetric, Reflexive, Commutative, Associative, Distributive, Combine Like Terms (not actually a property, but I let students use it as a reason on proofs), Addition of Equality, Subtraction of Equality, Multiplication of Equality, Division of Equality, Identity, Inverse, and Substitution.
Properties are arranged strategically so the most confused together concepts are on facing pages. Other misconceptions such as Segment GH is congruent to Segment HG is not commutative, but reflexive is also addressed. Helpful Notes at the beginning include a table of contents, a definition of terms, and an explanation of how to write subtraction as addition and division as multiplication.
My students have found this to be extremely helpful when writing proofs. It normally takes my 1.5 classes to make the booklet and explain the concepts. I use the remaining 0.5 of class to practice using an online program such as Plickers or Kahoots (both of which are free).
Feel free to email me after purchase for the editable versions. If you would like to share this product, please direct the other person to my TPT store. Thank You.
