Our Distributive Property lesson plan explains the distributive property to students, listing its rules and providing examples using both positive and negative numbers. The Distributive property is a very important algebraic property, combining addition and subtraction as well as multiplication. Students are asked to simplify expressions using the distributive property. Students are also asked to solve problems on their own to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to understand and apply the distributive property.
