Commutative Property

In our Commutative Property lesson plan, students learn what the commutative property is in mathematics for both addition and multiplication and how to use it. Students practice identifying problems that use the commutative property as a part of this lesson.

Our Commutative Property lesson plan explains the commutative property, covering both addition and multiplication. Several examples are provided for the teacher to review with the students. During this lesson, students are asked to use their collaborative skills to work with a partner on an activity in which they roll dice to generate numbers and then write an equation using the commutative property. Students are also asked to identify equations that show the commutative property and solve equations in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to understand the commutative property of addition and multiplication.
