Understanding the properties of addition makes problem-solving simpler and helps prepare students for solving algebraic expressions. Common Core standards for 2nd and 3rd grade math include using the properties of operations for computing and problem solving. This packet contains 2 interactive notebook pages, 5 practice worksheets, and a card game. Students learn to think of zero as a mirror in the Identity Property, to think of addends in different positions as commuting cars in the Commutative Property, and to think of addends grouped in different ways in the Associative Property as students who are grouped with different partners for class activities.
The practice worksheets and the card game would be great in a math center, and the worksheets are appropriate for homework assignments.
