Mrs. Hassels' Math Class
On Tuesday we learned about break apart, counting on, and compensation. Break apart is when you break apart the numbers and then add up all the sums. Counting on is when you have a number and you want to add on to it you can just use your fingers. Compensation is when you estimate the number to make it easier to add. Then you add the number that you took away.
On Wednesday we did estimating. Estimating is when you take a number and you round it to what ever place value you want to. If you want a more specific answer than round down lower.
On Thursday we learned about the Addition Algorithm. Addition algorithm is just like addition steps.
On Friday we took a time test. We also played a center game. Finally we reviewed estimating.
