Represent Numbers with Expressions
The purpose of this lesson is for students to demonstrate their understanding of place value by composing and decomposing numbers within 1,000 in different ways.
In this lesson, students practice using place value reasoning to compose and decompose units to find unknown numbers and create equivalent forms of three-digit numbers. They find the unknown numbers that make expressions equivalent and match expressions that represent the same number.
Although students should have access to base-ten blocks and tools to create base-ten diagrams as needed, students should also be encouraged to reason mentally based on their understanding of place value. The work of this lesson will support students’ work with adding and subtracting within 1,000 and developing students’ fluency in adding and subtracting within 100.
The cool-down should be completed before the lesson synthesis so that students can share their responses during the lesson synthesis.
- Compose and decompose numbers within 1,000.
- Create and match expressions of numbers within 1,000.
