In this lesson, your students will learn to multiply real numbers using the rule for the sign of a product. They will understand the properties of multiplication (closure, commutative, associative, identity, the property of zero, and the property of negative one) and apply noting the similarities that many of the properties have to addition. They will learn to calculate products with variable factors and they will learn to evaluate a variable expression, Finally, your students will find that calculations using multiplication properties and rules are now manageable, as they will calculate the displacement for falling objects, given velocity and time. Have a great day teaching!!!
