Key concept: Order does not matter when multiplying. Numbers and groups can be moved to help simplify a problem or make it easier to solve.

### Associative Property Worksheet – Level 2

This one page worksheet covers the associative property. It explains how we can change groups (move parentheses) in a problem to simplify it. Includes variables.

Key concept: Students need to understand that the order does not matter when adding or multiplying. Numbers and groups can be moved to help us simplify a problem or make it easier to solve.

### Simplifying Expressions Worksheet – Level 1

This one page worksheet covers simplifying expressions. Students need to combine like terms using basic arithmetic and the associative, commutative, and distributive properties.

Student misunderstanding: To combine terms they need to have the same variable or no variable at all (constant).

### Simplifying Expressions Worksheet – Level 2

This one page worksheet continues simplifying expressions. Students need to combine like terms using basic arithmetic and the associative, commutative, and distributive properties. It includes using the distributive property with fractions.

### Simplifying Expressions Worksheet – Level 3
