Area and the Distributive Property on the Mulitplication Chart


SKU: 2477487 Category:


I love finding new ways to use the multiplication chart to tie concepts together for my students. I created an activity to reinforce area and connect area to the distributive property…and I love it!!! Many students find it difficult to know exactly what numbers to put inside the parentheses and which operational symbols to use to demonstrate the distributive property. This fun activity demonstrates the math that is actually happening in all of those symbols.
