The worksheets in this unit go about teaching the associative property of multiplication in fun and creative ways. The associative property is sometimes a difficult concept for students to learn AND for teachers to teach. I have broken the property down in three easy to comprehend worksheets.

What's Included:

  • Worksheet 1 (copied in pink) helps your students with the definition and how to recognize the associative property of multiplication.

  • Worksheet 2 (copied in orange) is a matching worksheet where students will draw a line to the matching number sentence.

  • Worksheet 3 (copied in yellow) allows students to fill in the missing factors in the number sentence.

  • Worksheet 4 (copied in green) Word search with associative property vocabulary words. Introduce students to the words before they start the unit.

Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide. Examples: If 6 × 4 = 24 is known, then 4 × 6 = 24 is also known. (Commutative property of multiplication.) 3 × 5 × 2 can be found by 3 × 5 = 15, then 15 × 2 = 30, or by 5 × 2 = 10, then 3 × 10 = 30. (Associative property of multiplication.) Knowing that 8 × 5 = 40 and 8 × 2 = 16, one can find 8 × 7 as 8 × (5 + 2) = (8 × 5) + (8 × 2) = 40 + 16 = 56. (Distributive property.)
