  • Prime and composite numbers
  • Graphing rational numbers on a number line
  • The commutative and associative properties of numbers
  • The multiplication property of zero
  • Determining a number's least common multiple and greatest common factor
  • In what order you should perform operations in mathematical equation
  • Calculating the prime factorization of a number

Our expert instructors will walk you through each video lesson, helping to make learning these principles easy and fun. After studying, test your skills with our self-assessments.

ORELA Math: Properties of Real Numbers - Chapter Objectives

The Oregon Educator Licensure Assessments (ORELA) Mathematics exam has been replaced with the National Evaluation Series (NES) Mathematics exam. This exam tests teaching candidates' understanding of basic mathematical principles to obtain licensure. The topics in the chapter will assist you in the Mathematical Processes and Number Sense section of the exam, which will test your competency in solving mathematical problems. This section of the test accounts for 19% of the questions.

This is a multiple-choice question test that will ask you to solve theoretical and real-world mathematical problems. Make sure you try out our practice tests to get a better understanding of the types of questions you will be answering on the test.

What are the Different Types of Numbers?

1. What are the Different Types of Numbers?

Learn all of the different types of numbers: natural numbers, whole numbers, integers, rational numbers, irrational numbers, and real numbers. This video lesson teaches you how to classify any numbers you come across.

Graphing Rational Numbers on a Number Line

2. Graphing Rational Numbers on a Number Line

Number lines have many uses both in mathematics and everyday life. This lesson will teach you how to graph numbers on a number line and give real-world examples of how to use number lines.

The Commutative Property: Definition and Examples

3. The Commutative Property: Definition and Examples

There are three major properties that deal with the addition and multiplication of numbers. One of those properties is the commutative property. This lesson will define and give examples of the commutative property and how it works.

The Associative Property: Definition and Examples

4. The Associative Property: Definition and Examples

There are three basic number properties that help to form the backbone of algebra. One of those properties is the associative property. This lesson will define the associative property and give some examples of how it works.

The Multiplication Property of Zero: Definition & Examples

5. 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.

How to Find the Greatest Common Factor

6. How to Find the Greatest Common Factor

If the factors of a number are the different numbers that you can multiply together to get that original number, then the greatest common factor of two numbers is just the biggest one that both have in common. See some examples of what I'm talking about here!

How to Find the Least Common Multiple

7. How to Find the Least Common Multiple

The least common multiple of two numbers is the smallest number that can be divided evenly by your two original numbers. See some examples of what I'm talking about here!

What Is The Order of Operations in Math? - Definition & Examples

8. What Is The Order of Operations in Math? - Definition & Examples

The order of operations is the steps used to simplify any mathematical expression. In this video, learn how to solve problems using these steps and easy tricks to remember them.

How to Find the Prime Factorization of a Number

9. How to Find the Prime Factorization of a Number

The prime factorization of a number involves breaking that number down to its smallest parts. This lesson will show you two different ways to discover the prime factorization of any number.
