Examples, solutions, videos, and lessons to help Grade 6 students learn to 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.
Common Core: 6.EE.3
Apply properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions (Standard 6.EE.3)
The Distributive Property (6.EE.3)
How does distributing work?
Why is distributing important for working with variables.
Factoring is the opposite of distributing.
