This is a short video that shows students the distributive property by associating it with something they are familiar with. This video will ensure that students never forget to distribute to all the numbers inside the parenthesis. This video is great for English learners and students with learning disabilities because there are no words to read, the graphic will explain everything. It is short enough so that you can have your students watch it several times in class.
The video works best when you play it with no front loading. Let the students try to figure out the math on their own and then verbalize to a partner. Prior to the second example tell the students to try to come up with the answer before the video shows it to them.
