Description

Distributive Property (concept & practice): "doodle notes" -

When students color or doodle in math class, it activates both hemispheres of the brain at the same time. There are proven benefits of this cross-lateral brain activity:
- new learning
- relaxation (less math anxiety)
- visual connections
- better memory & retention of the content!

**This resource is also available in a DISCOUNTED bundle: Expressions & Equations Bundle

Students fill in the sheets, answer the questions, and color, doodle or embellish. Then, they can use it as a study guide later on.

Content includes:
- concept of distributing (based on doubling, tripling a recipe and how it applies to each ingredient)
- definition of the distributive property
- distributing a negative
- practice applying the property without any variables
- how to distribute with variables
- simplifying and combining like terms to write distributed expression in simplest form
- higher level practice with variables

Check out the preview for more detail about this item and the research behind it.


Visual note taking strategies like sketch notes or doodle notes are based on dual coding theory.ย  When we can blend the text input with graphic/visual input, the student brain processes the information differently and can more easily convert the new learning into long-term memory.

This strategy also integrates the left and right hemispheres of the brain to increase focus, learning, and retention!

Apply the properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions. For example, apply the distributive property to the expression 3 (2 + ๐˜น) to produce the equivalent expression 6 + 3๐˜น; apply the distributive property to the expression 24๐˜น + 18๐˜บ to produce the equivalent expression 6 (4๐˜น + 3๐˜บ); apply properties of operations to ๐˜บ + ๐˜บ + ๐˜บ to produce the equivalent expression 3๐˜บ.
