The purpose of this lesson is for students to subtract from a teen number.
In previous lessons, students learned about the unit of ten and composed and decomposed teen numbers. They also subtracted one-digit numbers from teen numbers without decomposing a ten. The purpose of this lesson is for students to subtract from teen numbers with decomposing a ten. Students may use methods such as take away or relating subtraction to addition. The first activity invites students to solve a Take From, Result Unknown story problem in a way that makes sense to them. In the second activity, students play a game in which they subtract a number 1-9 from a teen number. The lesson synthesis focuses on taking away and counting on as methods for solving subtraction. These methods will be discussed further in the next lesson.
