7.3 The student will identify and apply the following properties of operations with real numbers: the commutative and associative properties for addition and multiplication; the distributive property; the additive and multiplicative identity properties; the additive and multiplicative inverse properties; and the multiplicative property of zero.

Activity: This activity helps you understand how to balance an equation. You input the term and the operation. The activity uses that term and operates on both sides of the equation. It then displays the resulting equation. Equation Solver is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers.

Activity: Visualize factors through building rectangular areas on a grid. As you draw each factor set on the grid, the factors will be listed. Factorize 2 is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers.

Activity: Students play a generalized version of connect four, gaining the chance to place a piece on the board by answering order of operations questions (addition/subtraction, multiplication/division, exponents, and parentheses). Parameters: time, difficulty level, types of questions. Order of Operations Four is one of the Interactivate assessment games.

Activity: Explore perimeter through rectangular and straight-line arrangements of tables, calculating the number of chairs needed to surround different arrangements. Tables and Chairs is one of the Interactivate assessment explorers.
