This lesson introduces the field properties of the real numbers. Students will most likely have seen these properties before (closure, commutativity, associativity, etc.), but they may not be familiar with the concept of a field.
Also, the properties of equality are introduced (reflexivity, symmetry, transitivity, etc.) and they are used to justify simple proofs.
Detailed answer keys are included.
The topics covered include:
-Field Properties of Real Numbers
-Using the Field Properties
-Properties of Equality
-Using the Properties of Equality
