This is a guided notes page I used for the Input page of an Interactive Student Notebook. It allows students to see how the Commutative Properties of Addition and Multiplication and the Associative Properties of Addition and Multiplication work. It also generalizes the rules for students. As part of this lesson, I had students write numbers on post-it notes, which I used to further demonstrate how these properties worked. On the Output page of their ISN, I had students complete a sorting activity, where they matched each property with the appropriate equation.
