The associative property is reviewed by discussing the properties of addition and then built upon by examining the associative property of multiplication. Students are asked to solve equations to justify and deepen their understanding of the concept through out the presentation. If you have a smart board use the pens to add and adjust the parenthesis in the equations.
This prezi's background is amazing. It is built around a roller coaster ride and at the end of the presentation students are shown a roller coaster that goes backwards and forwards similar to how you can solve an equation when you have more than three factors. It almost seems as though the viewer is riding the roller coaster themselves. Be sure to click on the video to play it and leave a rating. Please consider becoming a follower.
