### Description

Teaching Properties of Numbers is essential and necessary - but usually not very interesting or fun. This game is an interesting way to gain students' interest on this subject.

Before class, print off the Property Posters on slides at the end of this presentation. These are the slides with the WHITE background. Hang them up in various locations around your room where they are clearly visible to students.

To begin the game, show students where each of the Property Posters are hanging and have students pick randomly pick one to stand by. You might have a rule that there must be at least one person by each property name. When students are ready, advance the slide show to the first slide. Students standing beside the property displayed are “out” for this round and must return to their seats. All other students select a new property and the process is repeated until only one or two students remain. This “survivor” wins the game. If the slide comes up that has the property they are standing by, they have to sit down. The last “survivors” win.

Although many Common Core standards can be met through this activity, the one that might be best served is:
CCSS.Math.Content.6.EE.A.3 Apply the properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions. For example, apply the distributive property to the expression 3 (2 + x) to produce the equivalent expression 6 + 3x; apply the distributive property to the expression 24x + 18y to produce the equivalent expression 6 (4x + 3y); apply properties of operations to y + y + y to produce the equivalent expression 3y.
