Use a learning activity with your youngsters in order to establish an understanding of patterns in a small addition table. Help learners recognize that adding two odd numbers will produce an even number, and adding two even numbers will also produce an even number. Alternating patterns in the table show an even number plus an odd number will produce an odd number. Teacher commentary and directions through guided practice allow learners to be exposed to the associative property of addition by visualizing the different ways to write the sum of a number.
