Our Associative Property lesson plan explains the associative property, discusses both addition and multiplication, and provides several examples for teachers to do with students. Students learn that associative property allows you to add or multiply regardless of how the numbers are grouped. Students are asked to complete a matching game and use the associative property to determine whether or not two equations are equal. Students are also asked to fill in the missing numbers in equations, further demonstrating their understanding of the lesson.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to understand the associative property of addition and multiplication.
