4 Lesson ObjectiveStudents will be able to apply the distributive property to write equivalent expressions. Students will be able explain how to use the distributive property verbally and in writing. Lesson DescriptionThis lesson is the second lesson for the standard 6.EE.3. The Distributive Property is a crucial concept in mathematics. The warm up in the lesson is a multiplication problem where the Distributive Property was used. This will trigger students to start to think about multiplication this way to prep them for the Distributive Property. The Launch uses a basketball court to introduce finding the area, which can be solved using two methods, one being the Distributive Property. Students then continue in their groups using divided rectangles to find their areas. Again, students will be asked to use both methods to later connect them as being equivalent; one method being the Distributive Property. The Summary part of the lesson is where students will be given the definition and explanation of the Distributive Property. Students are asked to finish the activity with challenging problems. The lesson finishes with an Exit Slip that contains three terms inside the parentheses. This was designed to push students to think about the process of the Distributive Property. Lesson Overview (1 of 4).
5 Lesson VocabularyDistributive Property: an mathematical property which helps to multiply a single term and two or more terms inside parenthesis. Expression: numbers and symbols grouped together that show the value of something. Commutative Property: changing the order of numbers does not change the sum or product. MaterialsCopies of the class work assignment, Exit Slip, and homework. Common Core State Standard 6.EE.3 Apply the properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions. For example, apply the distributive property to the expression 3 (2 + x) to produce the equivalent expression 6 + 3x; apply the distributive property to the expression 24x + 18y to produce the equivalent expression 6(4x + 3y); apply properties of operations to y + y + y to produce the equivalent expression 3y. Lesson Overview (2 of 4)
6 ScaffoldingThis lesson is designed around using area models as supposed to an algebraic way to show Distributive Property. Therefore, this lesson tailors to ELL students and students with learning disabilities providing visuals throughout the lesson to access this relatively abstract algebraic concept. EnrichmentIn the Activity portion of this lesson, there is an opportunity provided for students who seem to have grasped the Distributive Property relatively quickly. These questions challenge students a bit more by writing equivalent expressions using Distributive Property.

7 Lesson Overview (4 of 4) Before and After Expressions and Equations is a crucial topic for students to become successful in a future Algebra course. This content standard concepts and processes are a critical part in students’ career in mathematics. Thus far in this unit, students have been exposed to writing, reading and evaluating numerical and algebraic expressions. The lessons for this standard continue working on those topics, but taking their understanding of expressions to the next level. The first lesson for this standard deals with the properties of mathematics, where this lesson strictly focuses on the Distributive Property. It is advised that both lessons be used consecutively. With a strong background of the properties and the Distributive Property, students will be successful in continuing their wok in this standard; where students are expected to prove equivalent expressions and then solve equations. Topic Background The link below is a quick reference to the properties in mathematics. This link is a also a helpful resource for students. The link below is an article, “I See It: The Power of Visualization”. This supports the basic idea behind the lesson of using the idea of visuals as means to the lesson.

Back to Overview 24 1 st Time Users of 21 st Century Lessons Welcome to 21 st Century Lessons! We are a non-profit organization that is funded through an AFT (American Federation of Teachers) Innovation Grant. Our mission is to increase student achievement by providing teachers with free world-class lessons that can be taught via an LCD projector and a computer. 21 st Century Lessons are extremely comprehensive; we include everything from warm–ups and assessments, to scaffolding for English language learners and special education students. The lessons are designed into coherent units that are completely aligned with the Common Core State Standards, and utilize research-based best practices to help you improve your students’ math abilities. Additionally, all of our lessons are completely modifiable so you can adapt them if you like. Description of 21 st Century Lessons: Next Slide
25 1 st Time Users of 21 st Century Lessons The lesson that you are currently looking at is part of a unit that teaches the following Common Core Standards: Standards for This Unit Back to OverviewNext Slide
26 1 st Time Users of 21 st Century Lessons In order to properly use 21 st Century Lessons you will need to possess or arrange the following things: Required: PowerPoint for P.C. (any version should work) Note: Certain capabilities in the PowerPoint Lessons are not compatible with PowerPoint for Mac, leading to some loss of functionality for Mac PowerPoint users. An LCD projector Pre-arranged student groups of 2 – (Many lessons utilize student pairings. Pairs should be seated close by and be ready to work together at a moment’s notice. Scissors – at least 1 for every pair Requirements to teach 21 st Century Lessons: Back to OverviewNext Slide
27 1 st Time Users of 21 st Century Lessons Computer speakers that can amplify sound throughout the entire class “Calling Sticks” – a class set of popsicle sticks with a student’s name on each one A remote control or wireless presenter tool– to be able to advance the PowerPoint slides from anywhere in your classroom Personalize PowerPoints by substituting any names and pictures of children we included in the PowerPoint with names and pictures of your own students. Since many lessons utilize short, partner-processing activities, you will want a pre- established technique for efficiently getting your students’ attention. (“hands- up”, Count from “5” to “0” etc.) Project onto a whiteboard so you or your students can solve problems by hand. (Lessons often have a digital option for showing how to solve a problem, but you may feel it is more effective to show the work by hand on a whiteboard.) Internet connectivity – without the internet you may not have full functionality for some lessons. Strongly Suggested to teach 21 st Century Lessons: Back to OverviewNext Slide
28 1 st Time Users of 21 st Century Lessons We suggest spending minutes reviewing a lesson before teaching it. In order to review the lesson run the PowerPoint in “Slideshow “- Presenters View and advance to the “Lesson Overview” slide. By clicking on the various tabs this slide will provide you with a lot of valuable information. It is not necessary to read through each tab in order to teach the lesson, but we encourage you to figure out which tabs are most useful for you. Note: All of our lessons are designed to be taught during a minute class. If your class is shorter than this you will have to decide which sections to condense/remove. If your class is longer we suggest incorporating some of the “challenge” questions if available. Lesson Preparation (Slide 1 of 2) Back to OverviewNext Slide
29 1 st Time Users of 21 st Century Lessons After reviewing the overview slide, click your way through the PowerPoint. As you go, make sure to read the presenter note section beneath each slide. The note section is divided into two sections: “In-Class Notes” and “Preparation Notes.” The In-Class Notes are designed to be concise, bulleted information that you can use “on the fly” as you teach the lesson. Included in In-Class Notes are: a) a suggested time frame for the lesson, so you can determine whether you want to speed up, slow down, or skip an activity, b) key questions and points that you may want to bring up with your students to get at the heart of the content, and c) answers to any questions being presented on the slide. The Preparation Notes use a narrative form to explain how we envision the activity shown on the slide to be delivered as well as the rationale for the activity and any insight that we may have.
