In this math basketball game students will identify properties of multiplication and use them in mental math computations. These properties are:
- Commutative Property of Multiplication a x b = b x a
Changing the order of the factors does not change the product.
Example: 6 x 7 = 7 x 6
- Associative Property of Multiplication a x (b x c) = (a x b) x c
Changing the grouping of the factors does not change the product.
Example: (2 x 3) x 5= 2 x (3 x 5)
- Identity Property of Multiplication a x 1 = a
Any number multiplied with one is that number.
Example: 8 x 1 = 8 and 1 x 8 = 8
