LET’S BREAK IT DOWN!

What are friendly numbers?

Friendly numbers are numbers that are easy to add. It is easy to add 10 and another number. 10 + 2 = 12. It is easy to add together numbers that make a ten. 4 + 6 = 10. Doubles are also easier to add. 6 + 6 = 12.

Find how many crayons in all.

You have 11 crayons. A friend has 7 crayons. How many crayons in all? 11 + 7 = ? To make friendlier numbers, take 1 away from 11 to get 10. Then move 1 to the 7 to get 8. 10 + 8 = 18. There are 18 markers in all.

Towers

There is a tower of 20 blocks. You add stacks of 10 blocks on top. To add groups of 10 you can skip count by 10. 20 + 10 = 30. To add 34 + 50, skip count by 10. Start at 34, then jump to 44, 54, 64, 74, 84. So, 34 + 50 = 84.

MENTAL MATH WITHIN 100 DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

How can we use mental math to add 6 + 9?

We can subtract one from 6 and add one to 9. Then we have 5 + 10. We can also first add 4 to 6, so that we have 10, and then we can add the remaining 5, so we have 10 + 5 = 15. There is more than one way.

Is there an easier way to subtract 20 – 17 than counting backward from 20?

Yes. We can count on from 17: 18, 19, 20. We counted 3 numbers, so 20 – 17 = 3.

How can we use mental math to subtract 11 – 4?

We can first subtract 1 from 11 to make 10. Then subtract 3 more so we are subtracting 10 – 3, which is easier. We can also count on from 4 to 11.

What happens to the tens place when we add 40 + 30? What happens to the ones place?

The tens place changes but the ones place stays the same.
