The lessons in this chapter provide you with the opportunity to brush up on your knowledge of various mathematical properties and their applications. Developing a deeper understanding of these topics will help you demonstrate college-level proficiency when taking the CUNY Assessment Test in Math. You should be able to answer questions on the following properties once you have completed this chapter:

  • Commutative properties for addition and multiplication
  • The distributive property
  • Properties of equality for addition, subtraction multiplication and division
  • Reflexive property of equality
  • Symmetric and transitive properties

This material is explained using visual examples and simple and direct language, making these math concepts fun to learn. The accompanying quizzes require that you answer multiple choice questions, which is helpful in preparing for the same format found on the CUNY Assessment Test in Math.

CUNY Assessment Test in Math: Properties of Numbers Chapter Objectives

The CUNY Assessment Test in Math is essentially a measurement of your comprehension of various mathematical principles and practices. The Properties of Numbers chapter is designed to help you ensure your full understanding of facts and formulas relating to the properties of numbers and math operations. These topics are addressed in the numerical skills/pre-algebra portion of the CUNY Assessment Test in Math. You will be required to take this test if you score 40 or less on the Math 2 exam.

The City University of New York (CUNY) administers admissions tests in writing, reading and math. The tests are used for placement purposes. Students not using New York Regents or SAT test results are required to take these exams.
