Let’s start building numbers! Just as building skyscrapers is a visual representation of mathematics, students will use the visual representation of base-ten blocks to add—or build—onto a two-digit number.
Do your students ever want to just hurry and finish their homework? Your students can use the number line jumping strategy to quickly add two-digit numbers and show their understanding of place value and expanded form in the process.
Make It Work! Adding Fractions with Unlike Denominators
Adding fractions with unlike denominators just doesn't work like it does when the denominators are the same. Let's make it work! Students will add fractions with unlike denominators with sums between one and two.
Fractions are everywhere! In this hands-on lesson, your class will work together in groups to find real-world examples of fractions. As they discover more complicated fractions, students will create their own word problems with them.
