# Ch 3: MTEL Middle School Math/Science: Numerical & Algebraic Properties

This chapter will help you prepare for the MTEL Mathematics/Science (Middle School) exam by providing an opportunity to review the different numerical and algebraic properties of math.

## MTEL Middle School Math/Science: Numerical & Algebraic Properties - Chapter Summary

In this chapter, our professional instructors teach a series of lesson videos about the different numerical and algebraic properties used in mathematics. Study these lessons to improve your mathematical skills for the Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure (MTEL) Mathematics/Science (Middle School) exam. Afterwards, you should be able to use or understand the:

• Commutative property
• Multiplication property of zero
• Distributive property
• Identity property
• Inverses of common operations
• Associative property

All of the lessons and written transcripts were created with the goal of helping you refresh your memory of numerical and algebraic properties. The video tags allow you to go to specific areas of the videos so that you don't watch material you're already familiar with. To make certain that you're retaining the fundamentals of the chapter, take the self-assessment quizzes.

### MTEL Middle School Math/Science: Numerical & Algebraic Properties Chapter Objectives

The state of Massachusetts uses the MTEL Mathematics/Science Middle School exam to certify middle-grades math and science teachers. It is a computer-based certification exam composed of 100 multiple-choice questions and two open-response assignments. You'll have up to four hours for completion. Your score for the exam is based on your understanding of several subareas. Eight percent of the exam is allocated to the Number Sense and Operations subarea, and twelve percent of the exam questions belong to the Patterns, Relations and Algebra section.
