This graphic organizer and maze will provide your students with an engaging opportunity to identify the properties of real numbers, including: associative, commutative, identity, inverse, distributive, and zero product (or multiplicative property of zero).

This no-prep resource contains two versions. In the first version, the properties used are: associative property (of addition & multiplication), commutative property (of addition & multiplication), identity property (of addition & multiplication), inverse property (of addition and multiplication), zero product property, and distributive property. The second version uses the properties: associative property (of addition & multiplication), commutative property (of addition & multiplication), additive and multiplicative identity properties, additive and multiplicative inverse properties, multiplicative property of zero, and distributive property. Please know that the problems in both versions are the same. The only difference is the naming of the properties.

In my classroom, I used the graphic organizer as a warm up/do now and the maze as a review before my students took their quiz. The resource can be used in many other ways though; as an in class activity, homework assignment, quiz, and so much more!

This resource includes two versions of the same maze and graphic organizer, activity directions, and an answer key. Please see the preview for a list of all the problems included.
