# Lesson Plan: Equivalent Algebraic Expressions

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to find equivalent algebraic expressions using the associative, commutative, and distributive properties.

#### Objectives

Students will be able to

• show that two algebraic expressions are equivalent using the associative, commutative, and distributive properties,
• identify an algebraic expression that is equivalent to a given algebraic expression using the associative, commutative, and distributive properties.

#### Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

• writing algebraic expressions,
• evaluating algebraic expressions,
• the associative property of addition and multiplication,
• the commutative property of addition and multiplication,
• the distributive property of multiplication.

#### Exclusions

Students will not cover

• algebraic equations.
