Our Commutative Property lesson plan explains the commutative property. It covers 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. In the activity students 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.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to understand the commutative property of addition and multiplication.
