Number Properties have Super Powers

6th graders learned about basic number properties, such as the Identity Property and the Zero Property, during their "Expressions and Equations" unit. After learning about each property as a whole class, students used their math notebooks to document their learning, while using their iPads to practice using and identifying each mathematical property. After mastering the concepts, they performed more in-depth research on a property of their choosing and created a 'super hero' to represent that particular number property. Examples include "Associative Man" who defeats evil villians no matter how they group themselves, and "Commutative Woman" who can save puppies and kitties in whichever order she prefers!
