Before we explore the multiplicative identity, let's first establish what the Identity Property is!
It's time to start gathering the materials you need to help your child slow down or stop the Math Summer Slide. Start with this resource of daily math facts practice.
The Identity property of an OPERATION is the unique number which when used with the operation on another number does NOT CHANGE that number!
Be sure your child also fully understands the additive identity. These two properties of arithmetic go hand in hand.
Why? Because if you multiply any number by one (1), it will not change that number.
