The multiplication most people are familiar with which you probably learned in school, IS commutative - that's the multiplication of integers, as well as real numbers in general.There are some other operations which mathematicians call "multiplication" which are NOT communitative; for example, the multiplication of matrices, or the cross-product of vectors.

Probably, but the word you're looking for is "commutative." It's that too.
