In this video, Sal Khan demonstrates how to solve equations with the distributive property. Mr. Khan uses the Paint Program (with different colors) to illustrate his points. Sal Khan is the recipient of the 2009 Microsoft Tech Award in Education. (...06:04) There is a lot of information on the screen--the viewer may want to open the video to 'full screen.'[more]

The tutor instructs students in how to use the distributive property in mathematics. The instructor uses familiar mathematical language and demonstrates each step on a dry erase board. He covers a more complicated example of distribution - one that i...ncludes two numbers to be distributed (one positive and one negative).[more]

This is the first video of a series of videos that use skateboarding to explain the distributive property. This video was meant for 8th grade Pre-Algebra, however, it could be used for any age level learning the distributive property. The animations ...were created by Jennifer Palmertree, however, the video clips in the title section, and the music, are copyrighted, so this video is for educational use only. (3:27)[more]

This animated video demonstrates using the distributive property to solve 7(3+9). The seven is described as a ninja "attacking" the other numbers. ( :57)

The distributive property is one of the most important and fundamental parts of algebra. In this video the math teacher shows how to break down the equation in to the simplier components. Shows negative numbers also. This is a great beginning video. ...Video is good quality and good for all students as review or initial learning of concept.[more]

In this video learn how to solve division problems using the
divisive identity property, zero property, and distributive property. Distributive properties states to divide the number outside the parentheses by each number in the parentheses, then a...dd the dividends together. Examples are shown.[more]

Students learn the distributive property, which states that a(b + c) = ab + ac. In other words, the number or variable that is outside the set of parentheses "distributes" through the parentheses, multiplying by each of the numbers inside. Note that ...a negative sign outside a set of parentheses can be thought of as a negative 1, so a negative 1 distributes through the parentheses. Video is good quality and good for all students as review or initial learning of concept.[more]
