Discussion Questions
 Before VideoWhat are 3 different ways to show 88 using baseten blocks?ANSWER
Answers will vary. The total amount should be 88.
10 ones blocks are equal to 1 tens block.
Yes, I can exchange 50 of them for 5 tens blocks. Then I have 2 ones blocks left over.
2 tens blocks plus 1 tens block is 3 tens blocks. 6 ones blocks plus 3 ones blocks is 9 ones blocks. 3 tens blocks and 9 ones blocks is 39, so 26 + 13 = 39.
I can show 38 as 3 tens blocks and 8 ones blocks. 24 is 2 tens blocks and 4 ones blocks. I take away 2 tens from 3. 1 ten is left. I take away 4 ones from 8. 4 ones are left. I have 1 ten and 4 ones left, which is 14. 38 – 24 = 14.
 After VideoDo you need to regroup when you add 25 + 15?ANSWER
Yes! After adding, I have 3 tens blocks and 10 ones blocks. 10 ones blocks can be regrouped into 1 tens block, so I have 4 tens blocks, or 40.
No. 7 is greater than 2, so to subtract the ones, I can subtract 7 – 2. 4 is also greater than 1 so to subtract the tens, I can subtract 4 – 1. The answer is 35.
Yes. 7 is less than 9, so I cannot subtract 7 – 9. I have to borrow a ten and regroup it as 10 ones. I take one of the 4 tens blocks and regroup it into 10 ones blocks. Now I have 3 tens blocks and 17 ones block. I need to subtract 1 ten and 9 ones. To subtract the ones, I can subtract 17 – 9. To subtract the tens, I can subtract 3 – 1. The answer is 28.
Cathy got the right answer, but she did not have to regroup the two numbers into ones blocks first. She could have added together the tens and the ones, and then regrouped 10 of the ones into 1 ten.
It does not help to regroup parts of 27. He should regroup 1 ten from 34 into 10 ones, because he needs more than 4 ones.

Place value
Place value tells us the value of each digit based on its position in a number. For example, 39 has 3 in the tens place and 9 in the ones place.

When we have more than 10 ones, we can regroup some of them to make a ten. For example, if we have 13 ones, we can regroup them as 1 ten and 3 ones.

53 is 5 tens and 3 ones. We can regroup 1 ten as 10 ones. 53 is 4 tens and 13 ones. 53 is also 53 ones. We can regroup 10 ones as 1 ten. 53 is 1 ten and 43 ones.
Regroup 53 53 is 5 tens and 3 ones. We can regroup 1 ten as 10 ones. 53 is 4 tens and 13 ones. 53 is also 53 ones. We can regroup 10 ones as 1 ten. 53 is 1 ten and 43 ones.Regroup when adding
Add 36 + 25. Add the ones: 6 ones + 5 ones = 11 ones. Regroup 11 ones to make 1 ten and 1 one. Add the tens: 3 + 2 = 5 tens. 5 tens + 1 ten + 1 one is 6 tens and 1 one, or 61. 36 + 25 = 61.
Regroup when adding Add 36 + 25. Add the ones: 6 ones + 5 ones = 11 ones. Regroup 11 ones to make 1 ten and 1 one. Add the tens: 3 + 2 = 5 tens. 5 tens + 1 ten + 1 one is 6 tens and 1 one, or 61. 36 + 25 = 61.Regroup when subtracting
Subtract 42 – 15. Try to subtract the ones. We can't take away 5 ones from 2 ones! Regroup 1 ten in 42 into 10 ones. Now we have 12 ones. 12 – 5 = 7 ones. Subtract the remaining tens. 3 tens – 1 ten = 2 tens. There are 2 tens and 7 ones left, or 27. 42 – 15 = 27.
Regroup when subtracting Subtract 42 – 15. Try to subtract the ones. We can't take away 5 ones from 2 ones! Regroup 1 ten in 42 into 10 ones. Now we have 12 ones. 12 – 5 = 7 ones. Subtract the remaining tens. 3 tens – 1 ten = 2 tens. There are 2 tens and 7 ones left, or 27. 42 – 15 = 27.
