Math Basketball - Properties of Multiplication

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
