Maths Focus- T Irwin

Numbers that add together to make the same number?

Learning Intention: We are learning to investigate numbers that add to equal the same number.

In Transition Irwin students have been learning about adding numbers together to make a larger number. During one of our ‘Problem Solving Friday’ lessons, students worked in pairs to investigate all of the different number combinations that can be added together to equal their chosen number. Exploring numbers this way teaches students that there are often many ways of solving math problems.

Students used a lady bug template to assist them with constructing a variety of number sentences, adding and taking dots from each wing of the lady bug to alter the numbers in their number sentence, while maintaining the same ‘total’ number.
