PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Your students are going to love matching expressions using the Distributive Property with these tangram puzzles. There are 3 levels of difficulty if you would like to differentiate or students can do all three. These could also be great for stations or math centers. Students will enjoy discovering what the puzzle are and gluing them on a sheet of paper for coloring and decorating.

This activity addresses Common Core standard 3.OA.B.5, but is also relevant to higher grades as well.

CCSS.Math.Content.3.OA.B.5
Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide.2 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.)

I have several other property activities which include commutative, associative, and identity properties at:
