About This Chapter
Number Properties - Chapter Summary
Take advantage of the video lessons in this chapter to further your elementary students' understanding of the number properties they have been examining in class. Entertaining videos explain the differences between the commutative property of addition, the commutative property of multiplication, the multiplication property of zero and the distributive property of multiplication as well as the relationship between the commutative property and place value. You can use the condensed, multiple-choice lesson quizzes to see if your students have grasped the overall concepts. The chapter exam also provides useful feedback.

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.
