Topic Notes
?

In this lesson, we will learn:

  • The addition strategies of: (1) using friendly numbers with adjustment, (2) creating friendly numbers using addends, (3) adding on from left to right, and (4) adding by counting on
  • Understanding adding by 9

Notes:

  • Method 1: change into a "friendly" number and then adjust (by subtracting)
    • Round one of the addends to the nearest multiple of 10
    • Then adjust by taking away how much you rounded up by to get the answer
Addition Strategies
  • Method 2: make a "friendly" number using the addends
    • Use the numbers that were given for the addition equation
    • Move values from one number to the other number to make a multiple of 10
Addition Strategies
  • Method 3: adding from left to right
    • Add by going through one place value at a time
    • i.e. hundreds of 1st # + hundreds 2nd # + tens of 1st # + tens of 2nd # + . . .
Addition Strategies
  • Method 4: adding by counting on
    • Start with the first number, then add the second number one place value at a time
