This post explains and give practice opportunities related to TEKS 6.7D:
generate equivalent expressions using the properties of operations: inverse, identity, commutative, associative, and distributive properties
Students have learned various properties over the years but really put them into practice in the sixth grade. They first learn about the commutative property of operations.
The distributive property is one they'll use the rest of their educational career.
Between 2016 and 2023 (including redesign practice), this readiness standard has been tested 13 times on the STAAR test. Videos explaining the problems can be found below. If you'd rather take a quiz over these questions, click here. The videos below are linked to the questions in the quiz as answer explanations after the quiz is submitted.
