### Activity 1 NCERT Class 6

**(a) To verify that addition is commutative for whole numbers, by paper cutting and pasting.**

**(b) To verify that multiplication is commutative for whole numbers, by paper cutting and pasting**

**Learning Objective : **To understand that addition as well as multiplication are commutative for whole numbers.

**Pre requisite : **(i) Knowledge of addition and multiplication of whole numbers.

(ii) Knowledge of commutative property of whole numbers.

**Materials required : **Grid papers, a pair of scissors and glue

**Procedure (a) : (a) **To verify 3 + 4 = 4 + 3

**Step 1. **Cut out two strips each of length 3 units from a grid paper and shade them with any colour (say Red) Fig. 1(a).

**Step 2. **Cut two strips each of length 4 units from a grid paper and shade them with different colour (say Blue ) Fig. 1(b).

**Step 3. **For representing 3 + 4, paste one strip of length 3 units and then paste another strip of length 4 units in the same line on the grid paper without

leaving any gap Fig. 1(c).

**Step 4. **For representing 4 + 3, paste one strip of length 4 units and then paste another strip of length 3 units in the same on the same grid paper line

without leaving any gap Fig. 1(d).

**Step 5. **Now, compare (by counting number of boxes) the length of strips obtained in Step 3 and Step 4.

**Step 6. **Repeat the activity for some more pairs of whole numbers and write your result.

**Observations:**

Number of shaded boxes in the presentation of 3 + 4 = …………….

Number of shaded boxes in the presentation of 4 + 3 = …………….
