Commutative Property of Addition Teacher Resources
Find Commutative Property of Addition educational ideas and activities
Skills and drill practice may not thrill your class but as they say, practice makes perfect. They solve 16 single digit addition problems that require them to use the commutative property. Additional worksheet are available through this site from grades 1 through Geometry!
What can a middle schooler do in 90 minutes? He can practice using the commutative, associative and distributive properties of addition and multiplication. He can also simplify expressions using the commutative, associative and distributive properties. Now that's time well spent!
Pupils identify and define various mathematical properties, such as the commutative properties of addition and multiplication, and the associative property of addition. They also reason and communicate mathematically by making mathematical connections. Finally, learners create their own simple array and exchange with a partner.
Seventh graders use properties of addition and subtraction to solve equations. In this algebra instructional activity, 7th graders explore addition, subtraction and multiplication of properties as it relates to working mental math. Knowing which numbers to multiply or add first, allows the students the opportunity to compute at a faster rate.
I love lessons that use everyday objects. Using dice, scrap paper, and buttons learners create random number sets, chart the number sets made, and then use the commutative property of addition to create joining sets. This is a good lesson which really conveys the concept.
Ninth graders work with the commutative, identity, associative, and distributive properties while using variables. They review the definitions of the number properties in the direct instruction section of the lesson. In the guided practice section the work on each property with variables. Finally, in the student practice section they answer questions using the chart provided.
Students explore the concept of the associative, commutative, and distributive properties. In the associative, commutative, and distributive properties lesson, students discuss real world examples of each property. Students demonstrate each property using note cards with numbers on them.
Seventh graders practice using different types of properties for algebra, The properties include the commutative and distributive. They must differentiate when it is appropriate to use each. Students master the properties to progress in the simplification of mathematical number sentences.
Eighth graders examine the commutative, identity, associative, and distributive properties with variables. They practice solving equations using variables while identifying each property. Finally, they complete tables by adding the name of the property or the value of the variable.
Second graders work with a partner using objects to solve problems. They show their work on paper and write sentences clearly to show their thinking and the steps necessary. They then switch the numbers around after solving the problem again using the same numbers in the addition problem.
