The purpose of this lesson is for students to add one-digit numbers and two-digit numbers, and recognize when a new ten will be composed. They write equations to represent their addition methods.
In previous lessons, students added one-digit and two-digit numbers with composing a ten. They discussed methods that involved counting on, adding ones and ones then tens, and decomposing the one-digit number to make a new ten with the two-digit number.
In this lesson, students consider when a new ten will be composed before they find the value of a sum. When students recognize that they can compose a new unit of ten whenever the ones digits make 10 or more ones, they look for and make sense of the base-ten structure of numbers (MP7). Students write equations that represent their thinking.
