How do you solve addition equations?

We worked in strategy groups to solve addition problems. 

We can use tens frames. 

We can use objects. 

We can draw the equation. 

We can use a number line. 


  1. Math is such a cool subject and these are great ways to solve problems. Learn these concepts well because these are the basics that you will need for future math.

  2. Thank you, Mr. Baker! The students have enjoyed learning all the strategies they can use to help them add. They are excited about getting their "Math Tool Kits" tomorrow! I will be sure to post a picture. Thank you for you comment.

  3. I can't wait to see your students utilzing their math tool kits! Sure wish I had a tool kit when I was their age; this just makes so much sense! We, as adults, use tools everyday in our work...our students should too!
