In previous lessons, students explored different methods for addition and subtraction with and without composing or decomposing a ten. Students used base-ten blocks, drawings, and equations to represent their methods.
In this lesson, students choose their preferred methods and representations to add and subtract. Throughout the lesson, students are asked to connect expressions and diagrams, choose their own methods for adding and subtracting, and make sense of others thinking (MP2, MP3, MP6). Listen for the ways students explain their methods to others and look for ways to help students provide feedback to one another when their representations or explanations are not clear.
- Add and subtract within 100 using strategies based on place value, including composing and decomposing a ten, and the properties of operations.
- Let’s find the difference in our own way.
