Youngsters find sums by adding equal sets. They also explore commutativity and record known facts on a personal addition chart. Learners find the sums of two one-digit numbers and explore the commutative property of addition. This excellent plan has many terrific activities clearly described, terrific worksheets, and an excellent assessment plan at the end. Wonderful!
If you are looking for a visual warm-up on the commutative property, this might be the one. There is just one problem here, and you will need to guide learners through it since the objective isn't clear. They practice the commutative property of addition, first observing a numerical example, then solving an equation involving flowers. Have them draw in the equivalent equation, solving each for the same sum. There is an explanation below, so be sure to cover it up while kids are working on the problem.
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.
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!
In this algebra worksheet, students identify different properties of integers and their operations. There are 30 questions with an answer key.
Students find the sums of two one-digit numbers. They explore the commutative property of addition. They record sums on an addition chart.
Ninth graders investigate the property of closure.  In this Algebra I lesson, 9th graders explore the concept of closure and create closure tables.  Students analyze different sets of numbers and the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division to determine closure. 
In this equations and inequalities activity, 9th graders solve and complete 14 different multiple choice problems. First, they name an example of the commutative property of addition. Then, students use the distance formula to determine the value of a variable given the distance and rate. They also find the width of a rectangle given its perimeter.
Young scholars 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. Young scholars demonstrate each property using note cards with numbers on them.
Students practice mental addition and use the associative and commutative properties of addition to solve problems.
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.
Students complete a math worksheet. They go over five "topsy turvey" (commutative property of addition) examples as a class and determine how many fish are in the fishbowl. They write the number sentence and then rewrite the sentence using topsy turvey.
Learners use paper cups and colored chips to observe properties of operations with real numbers. As a class, students brainstorm and use manipulatives to demonstrate associative, commutative, distributive identity and inverse properties. In groups, they write a "properties poem" and create a slide show explaining the properties. Additional multi-sensory projects are listed.
Let's build a castle! Dennis and Cody have big plans, but do they have enough blocks between the two of them to accomplish their goal? A great context that requires students to add and compare mixed numbers. Encourage the use of pictures or diagrams to support answers. An excellent problem to assign following a lesson on the addition of mixed numbers. 
Straight to the point, learners are asked to compare a set of five expressions, determine which are equivalent, and then write equivalent equations for those that do not have any. A benefit is that they will review using properties of operations with the expressions. This activity was designed for and successfully meets one of the sixth grade math Common Core standards. You will find a commentary attached that provides a detailed explanation of the solution. 
While this activity is centered around expressions that represent the perimeter of a rectangle, it also hits at the fundamental concept of equivalent expressions, simplifing expressions, and like-terms. Classmates express their understanding and reason about these concepts. 
Use diagramming to multiply three numbers together in this fourth of a series of five on using operations to multiply and divide. A visual sample reviews the commutative property of addition, and then applies the concept to a multiplication word problem. The word problem is put into a number sentence and solved in a variety of ways.
The addition and subtraction of decimals is a relatively simple process. The most important thing to remember is to have all of the decimal points lined up. This presentation gives that strategy, plus some others to use when performing these types of calculations. A good presentation!
Practice basic operations for young mathematicians in fun ways! Using two decks of cards (Ace through 10 plus the joker), learners play "memory" by matching numbers that can be added to make 10 and writing number sentences. In another game, scholars examine clear bags with small items to determine how many more would be needed to make 10. They can use missing addend sentences and search for other groups whose bag has the needed amount to combine! A word problem is also included.
Starting mathematicians demonstrate strategies to add two or more numbers. In this computation lesson, learners use cubes to represent the associative property of addition and practice adding several numbers together. They also view an included PowerPoint presentation on strategies of addition.
