Arithmetic Commutative Property of Addition 1 Worksheet
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!
Famous Public Properties
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!
Properties of Operations
In this algebra worksheet, students identify different properties of integers and their operations. There are 30 questions with an answer key.
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.
Finding Addition Patterns: Lesson 1 of 6
Students find the sums of two one-digit numbers. They explore the commutative property of addition. They record sums on an addition chart.
Closure Tables-ID: 8641
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.
Commutative, Associative, and Distributive Properties
Middle schoolers 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. Middle schoolers demonstrate each property using note cards with numbers on them.
"The Grapes of Math" by Gregg Tang
Students practice mental addition and use the associative and commutative properties of addition to solve problems.
More and More Buttons
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.
"How Many Fish in the Fishbowl?"
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.
Properties of Real Numbers
Students 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.
New! Plastic Building Blocks
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 instructional activity on the addition of mixed numbers.
Understanding Rational Numbers and Proportions
Here is an excellent lesson on fractions, decimals, unit rates, proportions, and problem solving. In it, learners engage in six activities in an "investigation center." The activities are based on a fictitious trip to a bakery, and involve several important concepts of rational numbers and proportions. Outstanding blackline masters are embedded in the plan, which will make it easy to successfully implement the lesson with your class.
6.EE.4 Equivalent Expressions
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.
Rectangle Perimeter 2
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.
New! Use the Commutative and Associative Properties to Solve 3 Factor Word Problems
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.
Show that Changing the Order of Two Addends Does Not Affect the Sum
Wow, I give this lesson plan perfect for little learners, 4 stars! To convey the commutative property of addition and build foundational math skills, learners play a game called Kangaroo Jump. They review flash cards, play the game, the put it all to practice with a set of well-developed problems.
Addition becomes much simpler once scholars understand its properties. They examine the commutative property through five equation pairs. For each, the addends have been switched and scholars must fill one in. The next six problems give an equation and ask scholars to choose an addition fact with the same sum from three options. Debrief this instructional activity by asking scholars what patterns they notice, introducing the commutative property if you haven't already. Encourage kids by explaining that this means they know two addition facts for every one they learn!
You Can Add!
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.
Third graders examine word problems and find two different methods of solution. In this commutative and associative properties lesson, 3rd graders understand how those properties can aid them in solving problems different ways.
