Use these guided notes to introduce students to the commutative and associative properties with real-life applications! Students will use a map and distances between locations to discover the commutative property, and then a demonstration using grocery bags will give students an understanding of the associative property. After each activity, a graphic organizer (Frayer diagram) is included to help students remember the properties. Make learning fun with these applications-focused guided notes! Perfect for Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, or Math 1. Provided by Math With Mrs. Holst!
