This product includes three worksheets that help students understand the basics of the distributive property of multiplication. In my experience, there are few worksheets out there that help kids learn about this property. In these worksheets, students are given a number sentence such as 2 x (4 + 6) and are asked to write an equal number sentence, such as 2 x 4 + 2 x 6. Students are also given number sentences such as 2 x 19 and are asked to write an equivalent number sentence such as 2 x 10 + 2 x 9. These worksheets have been successfully used in a fourth grade classroom, but they are also appropriate for students at any level who need an introduction to the distributive property.
