## Description

This 5-day project-based math resource applies math concepts in a real-world scenario to teach students about the properties of multiplication, including the associative property, distributive property, and commutative property. In this 5-day unit, students will learn about and apply the properties of multiplication as they create and design cookies for a class cookie decorating contest. This multiplication math project is engaging and authentic. Plus, it’s available as both a digital and print resource.

This project-based math resource covers concepts of rounding and is aligned with the following 3rd Grade Math Common Core State Standards:

• Understand properties of multiplication and the relationship between multiplication and division.
• CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.OA.B.5
Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide.2¬†Examples: If 6 √ó 4 = 24 is known, then 4 √ó 6 = 24 is also known. (Commutative property of multiplication.) 3 √ó 5 √ó 2 can be found by 3 √ó 5 = 15, then 15 √ó 2 = 30, or by 5 √ó 2 = 10, then 3 √ó 10 = 30. (Associative property of multiplication.) Knowing that 8 √ó 5 = 40 and 8 √ó 2 = 16, one can find 8 √ó 7 as 8 √ó (5 + 2) = (8 √ó 5) + (8 √ó 2) = 40 + 16 = 56. (Distributive property.)

This resource is available in both Printable & Digital Google Slides versions.

What’s included in this resource:

• Background Knowledge: Using a KWL, students will build background knowledge around cookie decorating contests and learn about the judging criteria.
• Multiplication Review: Students will review the basics of multiplications and arrays.
• Associative Property: Students will learn about the associative property and practice solving equations using the associative property. The students will then create a cookie for the decorating contest and apply the associative property in their design.
• Distributive Property: Students will learn about the distributive property and practice solving equations using the distributive property. The students will then create a cookie for the decorating contest and apply the distributive property in their design.
• Commutative Property: Students will learn about the commutative property and practice solving equations using the commutative property. The students will then create a cookie for the decorating contest and apply the commutative property in their design.
• Wrap Up: Students will plan and review their final design for the class cookie decorating contest.
• Optional Extension: Students can create a model of their cookie using real cookies and decorating supplies to enter into a real class cookie decorating contest.
