## Number Properties - Chapter Summary

Through the video lessons in this Number Properties chapter, you could enhance your 3rd graders' ability to solve equations related to place value and the commutative property. The lesson quizzes and a chapter exam are designed to assess your 3rd graders' understanding of the commutative and zero property of multiplication as well as related topics.

Lesson | Objective |
---|---|

Commutative Property of Addition | Students learn to demonstrate the order property of addition by completing examples. |

How Commutative Property Relates to Place Value | Instructors teach students to solve equations that highlight the relationship between the commutative property and place value. |

Commutative Property of Multiplication | In this lesson, students complete examples of the commutative property of multiplication. |

Zero Property of Multiplication | Students learn the rules for applying the zero property of multiplication. |

Distributive Property of Multiplication | Through this lesson, instructors teach their 3rd graders about the distributive property of multiplication and allow them to apply the method in examples. |

### 1. Commutative Property of Addition: Definition & Examples

In this video lesson, we talk about the commutative property of addition and what it means when you are adding numbers together. Learn how it can help you solve addition problems faster.

### 2. How Commutative Property Relates to Place Value

In this lesson you will briefly review commutative property and place value. Then you will understand how the commutative property and place value are related.

### 3. Commutative Property of Multiplication: Definition & Examples

In this video lesson, we talk about the commutative property of multiplication. We will see how it works in action and what it means for you when you are solving multiplication problems.

### 4. The Multiplication Property of Zero: Definition & Examples

The number zero has different rules than other numbers; it behaves according to it's own unique properties. This lesson will define the multiplication property of zero and give some examples of how it works.

### 5. Distributive Property: Lesson for Kids

Sometimes you need to multiply with large numbers or use addition and multiplication together to solve a problem. In this lesson we will explore one method you can use to help make these tasks quicker and easier: the distributive property.
