Students practicing adding numbers up to 1,000 and focus on using multiples of ten. They also cross hundreds when adding the two numbers.
Students will be able to add numbers up to 1,000 with multiples of ten crossing hundreds.
Ask a student at random to come to the front of the class and drag the MAB blocks to the table on the interactive whiteboard. Then have a second student drag the next given number of MAB blocks to the table on the interactive whiteboard. Discuss the math problem that has been created by the two sets of MAB blocks.
Tell students that they can add by counting on. You start by counting how many you already have, that is the first number in the addition problem. Then you count how many are added, that is the second number in the addition problem. When you add these two numbers together, you find the sum or total. Show this on the interactive whiteboard using the blocks, and discuss the different math problems that you show. Check that students are able to do so by asking them to add the blocks and money together individually or in pairs. Next remind students that they can solve addition problems in different ways. You can use a number line to count on, you can add the hundreds and tens separately, and then add those two totals together. Have students practice a few methods individually. Ask students to explain their strategy in solving the problem. Finally show students how to solve a story problem. Remind them that they first determine what kind of math problem it is, they find the numbers important to the math problem, then they say or write the math problem, and finally they solve the math problem. Practice one story problem together and then ask students to solve a story problem individually or in pairs, following the steps given.
Check that students are able to add numbers to 1,000 with multiples of ten crossing hundreds by asking the following questions:
- Why is it useful to be able to add numbers to 1,000?
- How do you solve 260 + 90, and 350 + 170?
Students practice by adding two numbers to 1,000 with visual support. Then they are only given the problem and asked to solve. Finally students are given story problems to solve.
Remind students that it is important to be able to add using multiples of ten, because you can then easily find the total. Show the money on the interactive whiteboard and ask students which addition problem matches the image and what the total is. Then ask students to solve the abstract math problem, and end with a story problem. Ask students to explain their strategy for solving the problems. To close, have students create math problems in pairs. Ask each student to write a number less than 500 on a sheet of paper. Then have them find a partner, and solve the addition problem their two numbers create together. You can repeat this a number of times, with students finding new partners and adding their numbers together.
If students have difficulty adding multiples of ten, you can support their addition by making use of MAB blocks, other manipulatives, or a number line. Remind students that they can add in different jumps, including jumps of 1, 2, 5, 10, 50, and 100. Help students by starting with an easier problem that crosses hundreds like 150 + 60, and then increase the difficulty as they become more comfortable with the addition process.
Paper for students to write their number for the closing of the lesson.
