Transcript Using place value to add
: "What a beautiful day in the park!" : "Imani, look! Butterflies!" : "There are SO many!" : "Hmm... how can we add ALL of them?" : "Using Place Value to Add" We can help Mr. Squeaks add using place value! When we talk about place value, we are discussing the value that each digit has depending on where it is in the number. Mr. Squeaks is adding the blue and the pink butterflies together. There are twenty-five blue butterflies and twenty-two pink butterflies. In order to see how many butterflies there are TOTAL, we will add twenty-five and twenty-two. When you add using place value, start by representing the first addend using base ten blocks. Our first addend is twenty-five, which is made up of two tens and five ones. We can represent two tens with two base ten rods and five ones with five ones blocks. Our next addend is twenty-two, which is represented by two tens and two ones. We can represent two tens with two base ten rods and two ones with two ones blocks. Now that we have represented the addends with base ten blocks we can begin adding. We can start with the ones place How many ones are there? Five ones plus two ones equals seven, so there are seven ones in total. After that we can add all of the TENS rods that we see together, how many tens rods are there? There are four tens rods (...) and if we add them together we get the number forty. Last, we can add the tens and ones together If we add forty plus seven we get the sum, forty-seven. Wow, there are forty-seven butterlies all together! Next, Mr. Squeaks and Imani found flowers (...) and are adding to find out how many there are. If there are thirty-five dandelions, and twenty-three tulips, how many flowers are there in total? Remember, FIRST we need to represent the numbers using base ten blocks. There are three tens and five ones in thirty-five, so we will need three tens rods and five ones blocks. Next, we can represent our second number using place value. There are two tens and three ones in twenty-three, so we will need two tens rods and three ones blocks. Now that we have represented the numbers with base ten blocks, we can begin adding. Remember to start by adding the ones place (...) five ones plus three ones equals eight ones. Then, we can add the tens together. Three tens plus two tens equals five tens, or, the number fifty. Last, we can add our five tens and eight ones together, how many are there? Fifty plus eight equals fifty-eight, so there are fifty-eight flowers in total! Next Imani and Mr. Squeaks have found some mushrooms! If there are forty-six small mushrooms, and thirty-one big mushrooms, how many are there in all? Try this one on your own, how many mushrooms are there in total? Remember, start by adding the ones place. Then, add the tens place together. Finally add the tens and ones together. There are seventy-seven mushrooms! Let's summarize! When adding using place value remember... always start by representing the addends using base ten blocks. Next, add the ones place together. Then, add the tens place together. Finally add the tens and ones together to get the sum. Now, let's see what Mr. Squeaks has found next! : "Wow, look at all the pretty clouds!" : "Wait a second, that one looks just like Imani!" : "Imani?"
