Our Distribution lesson plan introduces students to the distributive property, including what it is and when and how to use it. During this lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively to solve distributive property problems and compare answers, checking each other’s work. Students are also asked to simplify expressions using the distributive property on their own, demonstrating their understanding.
At the end of the lesson, students will investigate and apply the distributive property with positive integers and variable expressions.
