Cutouts that line up with practice sheets to assist students in knowing which parts of an equation to multiply and add when using the distributive property
1) Print 1 sheet per person or group
2) Laminate for future use
3) Cut out entire distRIButive piece (don't separate the parts)
4) Print 1 practice sheet per student
5) Show students how to line the distRIButive pieces up with the equations to assist them in solving equations using the distributive property.
The cutouts show students where to multiply parts of the equation together and when to add the parts together at the end. The cutouts line up with the practice sheets attached.
