Addition and Subtraction Number Stories

Family Note

In today’s lesson your child used diagrams to help solve addition and subtraction number stories. Diagrams help children organize the information from number stories, identify the missing information, and decide whether to add or subtract to solve the problem. Organizing information in a diagram also helps children write a number model using ? to represent what they don’t know.
Encourage your child to choose a diagram that best matches the way he or she sees the problem. There’s no right or wrong diagram for a problem. What matters is that it matches the child’s thinking.

Solving Problems

Family Note
In class today your child solved addition and subtraction number stories involving the heights and lengths of various animals. Some children used mental strategies to solve the stories. Others used tools such as base-10 blocks or open number lines. Others drew pictures or situation diagrams to help organize the information from the stories. Please do not teach your child a formal method, such as the addition method shown at the right. At this stage it is important for children to work with more concrete representations. Children will be introduced to a formal method for addition in Lessons 6-7 and 6-8.
Please return this Home Link to school tomorrow.

Solve the problems below. You may use base-10 shorthand, open number lines, or any other tool except a calculator to help. You may also draw pictures or diagrams.

Question 1.
How tall are the ostrich and polar bear together?
Together they are ___ feet tall. 20 feet
Explanation :
Height of the bear : 11 feet
Height of the ostrich : 9 feet
Height of ostrich and bear together = Height of the bear + Height of the ostrich
:                                                         = 11 + 9
:                                                         = 20 feet
Height of ostrich and bear together = 20 feet

Question 2.

Two-Step Number Stories

Family Note

In today’s lesson your child solved two-step number stories, which can be broken into two parts and then solved in two steps. For example: Jonathan had 6 tickets for rides at the fair. His mother gave him 9 more. Then he gave 5 tickets to his friend. How many tickets does he have now?
To break this story into two parts, ask: What do you know from the story? (Jonathan had 6 tickets.)
What happened first? (He received 9 more tickets.) What happened next? (He gave away 5 tickets.)
What do you need to find out? (The number of tickets Jonathan has now.)
The first step is to figure out how many tickets Jonathan had after receiving some from his mother. The second step is to figure out how many tickets he had after giving some to his friend. Children are encouraged to solve two-step number stories using a variety of tools: drawings, open number lines, number grids, manipulatives, and diagrams. They also learned to record either one or two number models for each number story—one for each part of the story or one number model to represent the whole story.

For example: Use one number model, such as 6 + 9 – 5 = ?, for both parts. Or, use two number models, such as 6 + 9 = ? and 15 – 5 = ?, one for the first part and one for the second part. Answer: Jonathan now has 10 tickets. Ask your child to explain the steps he or she takes to solve the problem below.
Discuss how his or her number model(s) relates to the number story.

children were still playing in the sand

### Everyday Math Grade 2 Home Link 6.6 Answer Key

For each problem:

• Make a ballpark estimate.
• Solve the problem using any strategy you choose. Use words or pictures to show your thinking.
• Check to make sure your answer makes sense.

Question 1.
34 + 59 = ?
Ballpark estimate:
30 + 60 = 90
Strategy:
Combining tens and ones
34 + 59 = 93
Explanation :
34 + 59 = ?
Nearest number to 34 is 30 and nearest number to 59 is 60
So ballpark estimate is 30 + 60 = 90
By using the 10’s and ‘s strategy
N30 +4] + [50 + 9]
Now add the tens and ones
30 + 50 = 80
4 + 9 = 13
34 + 59 = 80 + 13 = 93

Question 2.
17 + 68 = ?
Ballpark estimate:
20 + 70 = 90
Strategy:
Open line strategy
17 + 68 = 85
Explanation:
The nearest number to 17 is 20
The nearest number to 68 is 70
So the ballpark will be 20 + 70 = 90
By using open line strategy we can calculate 17 + 68
First we have to add 10 to 68
68 + 10 = 78
And then we have to add 7 to 78
78 + 7 = 85 So we get,
17 + 68 = 85

Choose one of the problems above. Explain your estimate to someone at home. Then explain how you checked to make sure your answer made sense.
(As in Question 1)
Explanation :
34 + 59 = ?
Nearest number to 34 is 30 and nearest number to 59 is 60
So, I knew that the ballpark estimate is 30 + 60 = 90
By using the 10’s and ‘s strategy i know
[30 +4] + [50 + 9]
I have add the tens and ones
30 + 50 = 80
4 + 9 = 13
34 + 59 = 80 + 13 = 93
I checked my answer using the calculator as 34 + 59 = 93
So I know that my answer is correct

Adding with Base-10 Blocks

Family Note

Today children used base-10 blocks to help them add numbers. Three types of base-10 blocks were used: A cube represents 1. A long (a rod that is 10 cubes long) represents 10. A flat (a square that is 10 cubes long and 10 cubes wide) represents 100.
To solve 24 + 32 with base-10 blocks, children first represent each number with blocks or base-10 shorthand:
Then children combine the blocks according to type (longs with longs; cubes with cubes) and count each type of block: 5 longs show 5 tens, or 50; 6 cubes show 6 ones, or 6. The 50 and the 6 are called partial sums because they are parts of the final sum. Finally, children add the partial sums to find the total: 50 + 6 = 56.
Children also use base-10 blocks to add 3-digit numbers by adding the 100s, 10s, and 1s separately and then combining the partial sums to find the total.
Please return this Home Link to school tomorrow.

Use base-10 shorthand to show each number. Then write the partial sums and find the total sum.

Question 1. 34 + 41 = 75
Explanation : 1 rod = 10 cubes
So total number of rods = 3 + 4 = 7
Total number of cubes = 4 + 1 = 5
Partial sums are 70 and 5
Sum = 70 + 5 = 75

Question 2. 27 + 25 = 52
Explanation : 1 rod = 10 cubes
So total number of rods = 2 + 2 = 4
Total number of cubes = 7 + 5  = 12
Partial sums are 40 and 12
Sum = 40 + 12 = 52

Explain to someone at home how you use base-10 blocks to add.

Question 3.
__ = 500 + 30 + 2
500 + 30 + 2 = 532
Explanation :
By adding the hundreds, tens and the unit digits we get :
500 + 30 = 530
530 + 2 = 532
So,
500 + 30 + 2 = 532

Question 4.
340 = __ + __
340 = 300 + 40
Explanation :
By splitting the number we get the 2 partial sums
300 and 40
So
340 = 300 + 40

Question 5.
400 + 5 = __
400 + 5 = 405
Explanation :
By adding the 2 partial sums we get :
400 + 5 = 405

Question 6.
609 = __ + __
609 = 600 + 9
Explanation :
By splitting the number into its partial sums we get
609 = 600 + 9

More Partial Sums

Family Note

In the previous lesson your child used base-10 blocks to help find partial sums. Today your child used expanded form. Expanded form shows numbers broken apart into a sum of place-value pieces, such as hundreds, tens, and ones. For example, the expanded form for 324 is 300 + 20 + 4.
To solve 324 + 255, your child can first write or think about each number in expanded form, then use the expanded form to help find the partial sums: Encourage your child to use place-value language when working with this method. For example, when adding the 100s in this example, guide your child to say “300 + 200 = 500,” not “3 + 2 = 5.” Writing the expanded form can help children remember to use the correct language.
This method of finding partial sums and then combining the partial sums to find the total is called partial-sums addition. Partial-sums addition was introduced only recently, so allow plenty of time for practice before expecting your child to use it easily.
Please return this Home Link to school tomorrow.

Fill in the unit box. For each problem:

• Make a ballpark estimate. Solve the problem using partial-sums addition. Show your work.
• Use your ballpark estimate to check if your answer makes sense.

Question 1. Ballpark Estimate :
50 + 30 = 80
Answer : 53 + 36 = 89
Explanation :
According To Ballpark Estimate :
50 + 30 = 80
Add the tens digits:
50 + 30 = 80
Now add the units digits :
3 + 6 = 9
Now add them together
80 + 9 = 89
53 + 36 = 89

Question 2. According To Ballpark Estimate :
30 + 80 = 110
27 + 81 = 108
Explanation :
Ballpark Estimate : 30 + 80 = 110
Add the 10s digits
20 + 80 = 100
7 + 1 = 8
100 + 8 = 108 so we get
27 + 81 = 108

Question 3. Ballpark estimate :
125 + 240 = 365
Explanation :
Ballpark estimate : 125 + 240 = 365
Now add the hundreds
100 + 200 =  300
Now add the tens
20 + 30 = 50
Now add the ones
6 + 7 = 13
Now add the hundreds, tens and ones
300 + 50 + 13 = 363
So we get,
126 + 237 = 363
