Rewrite Multiplication Problems with Rational Numbers Using the Commutative and Associative Property
Review and practice with the commutative and associative properties using rational numbers. The video goes step by step through the reasoning why the narrator chose to group different numbers together before solving. Go through one example with fractions and one with decimals, use additional slides for more practice.

Associative Property of Addition - Mathematics 4
Using an envelope of colored shapes, learners practice using the associative property of addition. Each group is given a set of colored shapes, they arrange and rearrange the shapes, showing a variety of addition problems. They discuss their answers and understanding, then complete a series of practice problems.

Properties of Operations as Strategies- Independent Practice Worksheet
Find examples of math properties! On each of these two worksheets, learners examine five sets of number sentences, marking the ones which demonstrate the indicated property. The first page deals with the associative property. For each of the sets, there are four sentences, and some have more than one that fit the bill.

Commutative Property for multiplication
Sal uses both the commutative and associative properties of addition to solve one equation. He demonstrates that using either property will yield the same answer. This video is very well done. Sal establishes strong examples to show both properties and how they work.

Making a Ten
An addition table supports third graders as they learn strategies to improve their math fluency. When finding sums greater than ten, students are taught how to first make a ten and then add on the rest. A similar method is also introduced for adding nine to a single-digit number.

Associative Property of Multiplication
Third graders discover the associative property of multiplication. In this multiplication lesson, 3rd graders explore visual examples of using the commutative and associative properties of multiplication. They also practice solving problems that their instructors model.
Here is a new twist on teaching the associative property of multiplication. The author of this presentation makes an analogy between the associative property and a couple getting married. The numbers, like people, are separate, but when they are in parenthesis, like a married couple, they are considered one.
