Descompongamos para restar
The purpose of this lesson is for students to decompose a ten in order to subtract within 1,000.
In previous units, students used methods based on place value to decompose a ten when subtracting within 100. In this lesson, students extend their understanding of decomposing tens to subtract by place within 1,000. In the first activity, students are invited to use whatever method makes sense to them to subtract one- and two-digit numbers from a three-digit number. In the following activity, they use base-ten blocks to subtract from a three-digit number and reason about when a ten is decomposed when subtracting by place.
- Subtract numbers within 1,000 using place value strategies that include decomposing a ten.
- Restemos hasta 1,000.

Teacher Reflection Questions
In previous units, students decomposed a ten when subtracting two-digit numbers. How did you see students use this understanding as they subtracted from three-digit numbers in this lesson?
