## Flashcard Content Overview

There is typically more than one way to write the same equation. These are called equivalent equations and they allow students to approach a problem in way that may help them solve it more easily. But what makes one equation equivalent and not another? The properties of equality and operations set the rules for creating equivalent equations. Most young students learn how to apply the properties far before they actually learn their names and definitions, but as a teacher, you need to understand the building blocks so you can teach the students appropriately. This flashcard set is a great overview of eleven of the properties of equality and operations. You will find a card that tests your knowledge of the definition and the formula for each property. There are also two application based cards for each that cover property identification, property within an equation or expression and using a given property to solve for an unknown. If you find that you struggle with any of the individual properties, be sure to review those lessons accordingly.

Identify the property that is represented by the following:

x - 8 = 10

x -8 + 8 = 10 + 8

x = 18

Identify the property that is represented by the following:

9 + x = 15

9 + x - 9 = 15 - 9

x = 6

Identify the property that is represented by the following:

a/5 = 7

a/5 x 5 = 7 x 5

a = 35

Identify the property that is represented by the following:

9x = -72

9x/9 = -72/9

x = -8
