Adding Negative Numbers Using a Number Line
The video starts with a review of general subtraction. Using the commutative property for addition they show how a + b = b + a, then they move into subtraction. When you subtract and you get a negative, you need to add more to the negative number to get the same answer. For example 7 - 2 = 9, so 7+ (-2) = 5 and 7 - 2 = 5, it is discussed what is the same in the last two equations. Adding a -2 is the same as subtracting 2. Other problems are then done.

Commutative Property of Addition
Students learn the following addition properties: the commutative property of addition, which states that a + b = b + a. Video is good quality and good for all students as review or initial learning of the concept.
This video discusses the properties of addition. The video startes with solving a simple addition problem using a number line, they then change the order of the problem. This shows the commutative property for addition. Then they show commutative using negative numbers. Then other examples are shown. Then they show problems with parenthesis, which tells the student to do this part first. This shows the associative property for addition. More examples are given. Video is good quality and good for
