Dear Parents,        Here is a quick refresher if you need it:                                                                         What is a fact family?  A fact family is a group of numbers that use the same numbers to make addition,subtraction, division or a multiplication sentence or equation.                           For example: 3+2=5, 2+3=5, 5-2=3, 5-3=2. 

What is the commutative property?          The "Commutative Laws" say you can swap numbers over and still get the same answer ... ... when you add: a + b = b + a.   Chances are if you are at this website your eager to support your child in math.
