Real world applications for rewriting addition expressions using the greatest common factor!
This lesson sometimes gets "tossed in" when students first learn about the Distributive Property. Without much context though, students will struggle to understand "why" rewriting an addition expression using the GCF can be useful for solving problems.
Well, let me help you and your students! Include are five stations, a student recording sheet, a note sheet, a note sheet guide, and a small homework assignment all centered on providing students with real-world scenarios for rewriting addition expressions by using the GCF.
All problems are fully customizable, so feel free to include your student's names in the problems, or alter the note sheet as you see fit.
Please shoot me a message if you have any other questions about this product! Take care!
