## Learning objective

Students will be able to add partial sums to 1,000 with regrouping of the tens and hundreds number.

## Introduction

You have the students add to 1,000 in groups. To do this they add either 50 or 100. The first student starts with a hundreds number or a fifties number and states whether 50 or 100 must be added to it. The next states the answer and then says how much should be added to that number. They keep calculating until they reach 1,000. Then you show two answers on the interactive whiteboard. The students must determine which of the two numbers form the answer together. Drag the numbers to the right place.

## Instruction

Check whether the students can add using partial sums using the following questions/exercise:
- Why is it useful to be able to add using partial sums?
- What do the letters H T O mean?
- In solving partial sums, where do you always start?
- Calculate these using partial sums: 436 + 66 and 287 + 162 + 131

## Quiz

The students are given ten questions in which they first practice partial sums by stating what the intermediate steps are. Then they solve a few problems using partial sums. These sums consist of two or three numbers that the students must add together.

## Closing

You discuss again with the students that it is important to be able to solve partial sums to 1,000, because that is how you can solve problems in steps. Check whether the students know that for partial sums they must solve from left to right and when they go over a tens number or a hundreds number, they also must add this number to the diagram. Have the students practice partial sums addition in pairs. They both write a number and must figure out how they solve this together using partial sums. First they practice this with two numbers. Also have the students practice using a sum with three numbers.

## Teaching tips

For students that have difficulty with partial sums addition, you can remind them of the meaning of H T O and how you put the numbers into an HTO-diagram. Write out the intermediate sums. You can label the hundreds numbers, tens numbers and ones values, so that it is more obvious what you are adding together.
