In this elaborate activity, students will independently solve metric measurement word problems involving length. The students will combine the same length (10 cm.) multiple times. Students will use strategies based on place value and the properties of operation to add within 1,000. The students will use drawings or equations to explain their strategy.
This activity was created as a result of the ALEX Resource Development Summit.
In this before activity, students will engage in a number talk to link strategies used with numbers within 100 to numbers within 1,000. The number talk uses numbers under 120.
Students will use strategies based on place value to subtract in this explore activity. Students will bridge from using a concrete model to using a number line drawing when subtracting within 1,000.
This activity requires students to solve a subtraction problem within 1,000, then show their computation strategy on a number line. The activity includes a parallel task. The parallel task uses the same word problem with different number magnitudes (within 1,000, within 100, and within 25). The students will be allowed to choose the word problem with the magnitude level with which they are most comfortable.
