Unit 2

Place Value and Problem Solving using Addition and Subtraction with Units of Measure

Math

Unit Length and Description:

30 days

In Unit 2, students use place value understanding to round whole numbers. Students add and subtract using strategies and algorithms.  Students solve one- and two-step word problems involving addition and subtraction, units of measure and telling time. Students continue to practice fluency of basic facts involving factors of 2, 3, 4, 5, and 10 and their related division facts.

Place Value and Rounding…

Estimation helps us see whether or not our answers are reasonable.

Using rounding is an appropriate estimation strategy for solving problems and estimating.

Addition and subtraction are inverse operations.

Addition means the joining of two or more sets that may or may not be the same size. The counting up strategy can be used to make change.

Subtraction denotes finding the difference between sets or comparing sets.

Measurement:

·         The duration of an event is called elapsed time and it can be measured.

·         Mass and volume are important parts of everyday life and can determined a variety of ways.

Essential Questions:
