What is the commutative property and how do you use it? Find out how to solve for unknowns using this very special property of addition. Excellent visuals and real-world stories are used to define the commutative property in a way that third graders will understand. The class will see that reordering numbers in an equation is a way they can determine an unknown number needed to complete the problem. 
In this addition learning exercise, students solve 26 addition problems with 4 addends each. Students use the commutative property of addition to change the order of the addends and to find the sum. The problems are in horizontal format.
These fact families need to be completed. Scholars use addition and subtraction to complete four number sentences for each set of three numbers. The sentences are all part of the number set's fact family, and demonstrate the commutative property of addition. They complete eight of these, and four from just a number pair. Next, scholars write out all four complete number sentences to form the fact families for four sets of numbers. Be sure to debrief the connection learners see between addition and subtraction, noting that multiplication and division will look very similar.
In this commutative property learning exercise, students fill in the missing one digit numbers to the equations of the commutative property. Students complete 16 problems.
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 activity are available through this site from grades 1 through Geometry!
In this addition worksheet, students solve 7 problems in which single digit numbers are added. Students learn the zero and commutative properties of addition on this page.
Young mathematicians investigate the commutative property of addition using manipulatives. They show that subtraction and addition are inverse operations.
The instructional activity says it is intended for 4th grade but it is suitable for grades 1-3 as well. The class discusses what it means to add, the commutative property of addition, and mathematical reasoning. This is an exercise in number sense, logic, and reasoning skills.
In this addition worksheet, 1st graders solve 5 problems in which picture clues are used to add numbers below 10. Students will discover the commutative property of addition.
A cute little frog helps learners hop from number to number on the number line as they count on to add. They use the commutative property of addition to add the same numbers two different ways. A cute, simple, and potentially helpful classroom tool.
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.
Hands-on learning in math is essential to all learners, especially youngsters. In a math learning activity, young mathematicians use dominoes in order to discover the commutative property of addition. Fact families and doubles facts can also be introduced. The activity is ideal for connecting the use of moveable objects to the use of numbers and symbols. Teacher commentary and solutions are included; however, the domino activity is not included. Appropriate for second grade as well.
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.
Learners 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 plan, 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. 
Pupils explore the concept of the associative, commutative, and distributive properties. In the associative, commutative, and distributive properties lesson plan, students discuss real world examples of each property. Pupils demonstrate each property using note cards with numbers on them.
Learners practice mental addition and use the associative and commutative properties of addition to solve problems.
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.
