Classroom Instruction:

  1. Begin by asking students if they ever calculate math problems in their head. Explain that they no longer need to write down 1 + 1, because they have memorized it. Tell them that there are patterns we can memorize in math to make our lives easier.
  2. While reading the content pages, reinforce vocabulary and give students additional examples of mentally adding and subtracting 10 and 100 problems in order to help them practice the new algorithm. Use the additional resources to enhance understanding.
  3. Introduce the notes on mentally adding and subtracting 10 and 100. Have students practice problems with 10 and 100. Use the additional resources to enhance understanding.
  4. Have students practice problems using their hundreds board until they feel comfortable.
  5. Follow Activity page with students. Have students work individually and have them
    record their answers on a separate sheet of paper.
  6. Distribute Practice page. Check and review the students’ responses as a class.
  7. Distribute the Homework page. Have students work a few problems at the beginning of the next class to reinforce the algorithm.
  8. In closing, ask students to explain how to add or subtract 100 from a number.
  9. Allow for responses and discussion.
