Commutative, Associative and Distributive Comic Book

Commutative, Associative and Distributive

Math definitions rank up there with fractions as some of the most dreaded material for students to study. Here is a cute way to lighten up the classroom a bit.

Have students create their own super hero’s labeled Commutative Man, Associative Man and Distributive Man. The only catch is that the super powers must be related to the math properties. For example, Associative man may use parenthesis for force fields or since order doesn’t matter commutative man may be able to use his powers from both hands.
