 How to do mental math with numbers up to 100.
 How we can use place value to add and subtract in our heads.
 Explore how doing mental math can help us build a tower, color a rainbow, and take care of mice!

Discussion Questions
 Before VideoWhat does mental math mean?ANSWER
Doing math in your head without pencil and paper.
Using manipulatives, drawing, charts, and writing the numbers by lining them up by place value.
10 + 5 is easier to add because 10 is an easy number to use. To add, we just change the ones place.
A number that is easier to add or subtract with, like 10, 20, or 30. Skip counting means adding the same number over and over, which is also easier.
We can ask “5 plus what number is equal to 9?”
 After VideoHow can we use mental math to add 6 + 9?ANSWER
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.
Yes. We can count on from 17: 18, 19, 20. We counted 3 numbers, so 20 – 17 = 3.
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.
The tens place changes but the ones place stays the same.

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.

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.

You have 8 red flowers and 9 blue flowers. How many flowers in all? Use a double fact: 8 + 8 = 16. 8 + 9 is one more, so 8 + 9 = 17.

There are 24 mice in a basket. 11 mice leave. How many are left? Find 24 – 11. It is easy to subtract 10. 11 is 10 and 1 more. 24 – 10 = 14. 14 – 1 = 13. There are 13 mice left.

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.
