Students use problem-solving skills to find fact families, including those in which one addend is zero or in which the addends are alike.Thinkfinity Partner: IlluminationsGrade Span: K,PreK,1,2Subject: Language Arts,MathematicsTitle: Fact Families      Add Bookmark Description: In this lesson, one of a multi-part unit from Illuminations, students use books and connecting cubes to explore the relationship of addition to subtraction. Students search for related addition and subtraction facts for a given number using a virtual or actual calculator to find differences. They also investigate fact families when one addend is 0 as well as when the addends are the same. Several pieces of literature appropriate for use with this lesson are suggested.Thinkfinity Partner: IlluminationsGrade Span: K,PreK,1,2Subject: MathematicsTitle: Illuminations Activities      Add Bookmark Description: This Web page, from Illuminations, allows users to access all of Illuminations' online, interactive activities.

Students also explore recording the modeled subtraction facts and the related addition facts in equation form.Thinkfinity Partner: IlluminationsGrade Span: K,PreK,1,2Subject: MathematicsTitle: How Many More?      Add Bookmark Description: In this lesson, one of a multi-part unit from Illuminations, students write subtraction problems, model them with sets of fish-shaped crackers, and communicate their findings in words and pictures. They record differences in words and symbols. The additive identity is reviewed in the context of comparing equal sets. Several pieces of literature appropriate for use with this lesson are suggested.Thinkfinity Partner: IlluminationsGrade Span: K,PreK,1,2Subject: MathematicsTitle: Finding Fact Families      Add Bookmark Description: In this lesson, one of a multi-part unit from Illuminations, students explore the relation of addition to subtraction. Then the children search for related addition and subtraction facts for a given number. They also investigate fact families, including those where one addend is 0 and where the addends are alike. Several pieces of literature appropriate for use with this lesson are suggested.Thinkfinity Partner: IlluminationsGrade Span: K,PreK,1,2Subject: MathematicsTitle: Multiple Patterns      Add Bookmark Description: In this lesson, one of a multi-part unit from Illuminations, students explore patterns that involve doubling. They use objects and numbers in their exploration and record them using a table.Thinkfinity Partner: IlluminationsGrade Span: K,PreK,1,2Subject: MathematicsTitle: Finding Fact Families      Add Bookmark Description: In this lesson, one of a multi-part unit from Illuminations, the relationship of subtraction to addition is introduced with a book and with dominoes. Then, the children explore the concept of missing addends. They also add cards with sums of 4 to their individual set of triangle-shaped flash cards. Several pieces of literature appropriate for use with this lesson are suggested.Thinkfinity Partner: IlluminationsGrade Span: K,PreK,1,2
