Students` Learning Outcomes
 Verify the Commutative property of multiplication of fractions.
 Verify the Associative property of multiplication of fractions.
Information for Teachers
 There are properties involving multiplication that will help make problems easier to solve.
 Commutative Property: Change the place in multiplication of two fraction does n`t change the product.
 Associative Property: When three or more fractions are multiplied, the product is the same regardless of the grouping of the factors.
 While teaching the lesson, the teacher should consult with textbook where and when it is required.
Material / Resources
Writing board, chalk, marker, duster, chart paper, textbook
Introduction
 Write following statements on the board and recall the properties of commutative and associative for addition, as; 4 + 2 = 2 + 4, (5 + 3) + 2 = 5 + (2 + 3)
 Which properties are being used? (Expected answer would be as; Commutative and Associative Properties)
 B + a = a + b, (a + b) + c = a + (b + c)
 Now tell that these properties are also verified for multiplication.
 4 x 2 = 2 x 4 (Expected answer would be as; Commutative Properties)
 (5 x 3) x 2 = 5 x (2 x 3) (Expected answer would be as; Associative Properties)
 Announce that in this lesson we will verify these properties for the multiplication of fractions.
Development
Activity 1 Individual & Pair Group Task:

Activity 2 Group Task:

Sum up / Conclusion
 Recap the main points of the lesson and conclude by giving one example of each that multiplication of fractions is commutative as well as associative.
Assessment
 Write following questions of fractions on the board and ask students to work in pairs, and groups.
 Select any 2 questions and verify both properties.
 Each student in pair or group must select different questions.
 Then swap their copies for peer checking.
Follow up
 Ask students to work in groups and show in groups and show with examples that whether these properties are verified in division as well.
