This is a cut and paste activity for properties of real numbers. It worked great for a review activity before the test! This activity is aligned to Virginia Standards of Learning 7.17 which are very similar to Common Core.
Students will cut out each "proof" and determine which property is being used. The examples are two steps each, and students use the properties to determine the difference between the first and second step. There are 6 examples for each property heading. The properties included in this activity are:
Associative Property of Addition/Multiplication
Commutative Property of Addition/Multiplication
Inverse Property of Addition/Multiplication
Identity Property of Addition/Multiplication
Multiplicative Property of Zero
Answer key is included!
