Descompongamos decenas o centenas
The purpose of this lesson is for students to subtract from three-digit numbers using place value strategies that include decomposing a ten or hundred.
In a previous lesson, students subtracted from a three-digit number using place value strategies that included decomposing a ten.
In this lesson, students interpret representations of subtraction that show decomposing a ten and hundred. They use base-ten blocks and their understanding of place value to explain why the method works (MP7). Students may continue to use the base-ten blocks or any representation that makes sense to them to subtract within 1,000.
- Action and Expression
- Subtract numbers within 1,000 using place value strategies that include decomposing a ten or hundred.
