Modeling Addition: Commutative Property and Zero Property
First graders practice modeling addition. In this hands-on addition lesson plan, 1st graders are introduced to the Commutative Property of Addition and the Zero Property of Addition through modeling and the use of manipulatives. This lesson includes a script for the teacher.
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!
Properties of Multiplication
Properties of multiplication can get confusing, and are incredibly important to mathematicians. This worksheet is helpful in that it first explains the properties (commutative, associative, and distributive), giving examples of each. Then, scholars complete six multiple-choice problems during which they must choose the equation which shows the property listed. A second worksheet gives a more challenging option, with less explanation and eight problems. Answers are provided.
Properties of Operations as Strategies: Step-by-Step Lesson
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.
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. On the second page, they do the same thing while looking for the commutative property. This will work well to reveal common misconceptions about these properties.
Properties of Operations as Strategies - Guided Lesson
Math properties can be tricky, but this worksheet's visual approach makes them accessible to young learners. First, they apply the associative property by filling in the blanks of an equivalent equation, concluding that the values are equal despite the parentheses' placement. Then, they examine a set of dinosaurs to understand the commutative property (consider having them write the corresponding numbers in). Lastly, students rewrite an expression to demonstrate the associative property.
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!
In this commutative property learning exercise, students use number cubes to create equations where they demonstrate the commutative property. Students fill in 8 equations to a chart and answer 3 questions.
In this multiplication worksheet, students roll cubes and multiply the numbers on the cubes using the commutative property of multiplication. Students complete 8 problems and answer 3 questions.
Properties of Operations
In this algebra worksheet, students identify different properties of integers and their operations. There are 30 questions with an answer key.
Properties of Numbers
Use this math worksheet to have learners are given six problems involving the distributive, commutative and associative properties of numbers.
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.
Developing Strategies for Addition and Subtraction
Primary graders develop strategies to assist them with addition and subtraction. They discover number combinations and numerical facts which enable them to add and subtract more effectively. Students use these techniques to complete story problems.
Young learners explore addition and subtraction in an activity designed around the food pyramid. Pairs work together to collect pictures of foods that fit in each of the categories, then they add and subtract their pictures to come up with different sums and differences. An excellent worksheet is included in this activity as well.
Properties of Multiplication
Third graders explore the properties of multiplication. In this computation lesson plan, 3rd graders participate in a drill and answer several factorization and addition problems. Students then work independently and use counters to solve multiplication problems with the same factors.
Looking Back and Moving Forward: Begin With Buttons
Students rotate through five stations to complete activities involving button math. They write subtraction sentences, play a dice and button game, create a bar graph online, play button bingo, and record buttons landing on a piece of paper.
Multiplication & Division with Arrays
Third graders work with fact families using the commutative property, arrange arrays with manipulatives, and multiply and divide symbolically with numbers.
One Hundred Hungry Ants (Multiplication and Division)
Fourth graders explore factors of numbers from 1 to 50. They gain practice with basic facts and multi-digit multiplication problems. Students practice the commutative property. They discover the link between multiplication and division. Students demonstrate using rectangular arrays to symbolically solve problems.
Miniature mathemeticians practice multiplication facts by playing card games and singing skip-counting songs.
