TITLE : Unit 03: Addition and Subtraction without Algorithms SUGGESTED DURATION : 25 days

Unit Overview

Introduction
This unit bundles student expectations that address generating, representing and solving addition and subtraction problem situations without algorithms, recalling basic facts with automaticity, and determining the value of a collection of coins. According to the Texas Education Agency, mathematical process standards including application, a problem-solving model, tools and techniques, communication, representations, relationships, and justifications should be integrated (when applicable) with content knowledge and skills so that students are prepared to use mathematics in everyday life, society, and the workplace.

Prior to this Unit
In Grade 1, students applied basic facts, strategies, and properties of operations to generate, represent, and solve addition and subtraction problems within 20. In Grade 2 Unit 02, students determined the value of a collection of coins and used the dollar symbol and decimal or the cent symbol to name the value of the coins.

During this Unit
Students apply strategies based on place value and properties of operations to add up to four two-digit numbers or subtract two-digit numbers. Students also explore flexible methods and models to solve and represent addition and subtraction situations within 1,000, which may include up to three-digit numbers. Strategies may include mental math, concrete models, pictorial representations, number sentences, and open number lines. Addition and subtraction situations, where the unknown may be any one of the terms in the problem, should include numbers that require regrouping to solve the problem. The relationship between place value and each flexible method and/or model should be emphasized in order to prepare students for the transition to algorithms in Unit 06. Within this unit, students also experience generating addition and subtraction situations when given a number sentence involving addition or subtraction of numbers within 1,000. Continued use of basic addition and subtraction fact strategies to solve problems leads to automatic recall and fact fluency. Students revisit determining the value of a collection of coins up to one dollar using formal money notation, including the dollar symbol and decimal or the cent symbol. Students also experience exchange of coins to create sets of equivalent value and to create minimal sets of coins for a given value.

After this Unit
In Unit 06, students will extend representing and solving addition and subtraction problems within 1,000 as they connect flexible methods to the standard algorithm.

Additional Notes
In Grade 2, generating, representing, and solving addition and subtraction situations, and recalling basic facts are subsumed within the Grade 2 Texas Response to Curriculum Focal Points (TxRCFP): Using place value and properties of operations to solve problems involving addition and subtraction of whole numbers within 1,000. Determining and representing the value of a collection of coins are identified within the Grade 2 Texas Response to Curriculum Focal Points (TxRCFP): Developing proficiency in the use of place value within the base-10 numeration system. This unit is supporting the development of the Texas College and Career Readiness Standards (TxCCRS): I. Numeric Reasoning A2, B1; II. Algebraic Reasoning D1, D2; V. Statistical Reasoning A1, C2; VII. Problem Solving and Reasoning A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, B1, C1, D1, D2; VIII. Communication and Representation A1, A2, A3, B1, B2, C1, C2, C3; IX. Connections A1, A2, B1, B2, B3.

Research
Research has shown the need for educators to develop the foundation for mental math relationships in order for students to be successful problem solvers utilizing a solid understanding of addition and subtraction properties and strategies before computational algorithms are introduced so students do not rely on rote procedures without comprehension. Clements and Sarama (2009) state that “the use of written algorithms are introduced too soon and that the use of mental computation is a more beneficial approach” (p. 148). The authors also indicate that “there are two primary categories when addressing mental calculation strategies: decomposition and jump are the main two strategies which align with the two ways of interpreting two-digit numbers; the ‘collection-based’ (base-10 models) and the ‘sequence-based’ (number line and 100-chart) interpretations” (p. 149-150). The direct teaching of number relationships related to operations relies on a variety of methods and strategies so that students do not become dependent on a single approach. The research in Adding It Up: Helping Children Learn Mathematics indicates there is not a single preferred instructional approach and suggests the use of instructional supports (classroom discussion, physical materials, etc.). This allows students to focus on the base-10 structure of our number system and how the structure is used in the algorithms. The authors state, “It is important for (non-algorithmic) computational procedures to be efficient, to be used accurately, and to result in correct answers. Both accuracy and efficiency can be improved with practice…students also need to be able to apply procedures flexibly” ((National Research Council, 2001, p. 121). Flexibility allows the student to think through their solutions, justify their answers, and communicate their thinking.

MISCONCEPTIONS / UNDERDEVELOPED CONCEPTS

Misconceptions:

  • Some students may think they must add or subtract in the order that the numbers are presented in the problem rather than performing the operation based on the meaning and action(s) of the problem situation.
  • Some students may think subtraction is commutative rather than recognizing the minuend as the total amount and the subtrahend as the amount being subtracted (e.g., 5 – 3 is not the same as 3 – 5, etc.).
  • Some students may think you record the dollar symbol after the numerals when recording one dollar because you orally say “dollar” after “one” rather than recording the dollar symbol, numeral, decimal, and 00.
  • Some students may think you can use the dollar symbol, decimal, and cent symbol in the same representation when describing the value of coins rather than either using the dollar symbol with a decimal or using the cent symbol.
  • Some students may think a given amount of money can be represented only one way rather than recognizing that the value of coins and bills may be represented with different combinations of coins as long as the total value remains the same.

Underdeveloped Concepts:

  • Some students may not recognize the difference between an addition situation and a subtraction situation based on the context of the problem.
  • Some students may interpret the equal sign to mean that an operation must be performed on the numbers on one side and the result of this operation is recorded on the other side of the equal sign rather than understanding the equal sign as representing equivalent values (e.g., 10 + 8 = 13 + 5).
  • Some students may confuse the –, +, and = symbols due to not fully understanding the meaning of each symbol.
  • Some students may correctly determine related addition number sentences but have difficulty determining the subtraction number sentences within a fact family.
  • Some students may view addition and subtraction as discrete and separate operations due to not recognizing the inverse relationship between the operations.
  • Some students may recognize the traditional views of coins and bills but not recognize new or commemorative views (e.g., state quarters, buffalo nickels, new paper money, etc.).

ELPS.c.3 The ELL speaks in a variety of modes for a variety of purposes with an awareness of different language registers (formal/informal) using vocabulary with increasing fluency and accuracy in language arts and all content areas. ELLs may be at the beginning, intermediate, advanced, or advanced high stage of English language acquisition in speaking. In order for the ELL to meet grade-level learning expectations across the foundation and enrichment curriculum, all instruction delivered in English must be linguistically accommodated (communicated, sequenced, and scaffolded) commensurate with the student's level of English language proficiency. The student is expected to:
ELPS.c.3A practice producing sounds of newly acquired vocabulary such as long and short vowels, silent letters, and consonant clusters to pronounce English words in a manner that is increasingly comprehensible
ELPS.c.3B expand and internalize initial English vocabulary by learning and using high-frequency English words necessary for identifying and describing people, places, and objects, by retelling simple stories and basic information represented or supported by pictures, and by learning and using routine language needed for classroom communication
ELPS.c.3C speak using a variety of grammatical structures, sentence lengths, sentence types, and connecting words with increasing accuracy and ease as more English is acquired
ELPS.c.3D speak using grade-level content area vocabulary in context to internalize new English words and build academic language proficiency
ELPS.c.3E share information in cooperative learning interactions
ELPS.c.3F ask and give information ranging from using a very limited bank of high-frequency, high-need, concrete vocabulary, including key words and expressions needed for basic communication in academic and social contexts, to using abstract and content-based vocabulary during extended speaking assignments
ELPS.c.3G express opinions, ideas, and feelings ranging from communicating single words and short phrases to participating in extended discussions on a variety of social and grade-appropriate academic topics

ELPS.c.4 The ELL reads a variety of texts for a variety of purposes with an increasing level of comprehension in all content areas. ELLs may be at the beginning, intermediate, advanced, or advanced high stage of English language acquisition in reading. In order for the ELL to meet grade-level learning expectations across the foundation and enrichment curriculum, all instruction delivered in English must be linguistically accommodated (communicated, sequenced, and scaffolded) commensurate with the student's level of English language proficiency. For Kindergarten and Grade 1, certain of these student expectations apply to text read aloud for students not yet at the stage of decoding written text. The student is expected to:
ELPS.c.4A learn relationships between sounds and letters of the English language and decode (sound out) words using a combination of skills such as recognizing sound-letter relationships and identifying cognates, affixes, roots, and base words
ELPS.c.4B recognize directionality of English reading such as left to right and top to bottom
ELPS.c.4C develop basic sight vocabulary, derive meaning of environmental print, and comprehend English vocabulary and language structures used routinely in written classroom materials
ELPS.c.4D use prereading supports such as graphic organizers, illustrations, and pretaught topic-related vocabulary and other prereading activities to enhance comprehension of written text
ELPS.c.4E read linguistically accommodated content area material with a decreasing need for linguistic accommodations as more English is learned
ELPS.c.4F use visual and contextual support and support from peers and teachers to read grade-appropriate content area text, enhance and confirm understanding, and develop vocabulary, grasp of language structures, and background knowledge needed to comprehend increasingly challenging language
ELPS.c.4G demonstrate comprehension of increasingly complex English by participating in shared reading, retelling or summarizing material, responding to questions, and taking notes commensurate with content area and grade level needs
ELPS.c.4H read silently with increasing ease and comprehension for longer periods

ELPS.c.4J demonstrate English comprehension and expand reading skills by employing inferential skills such as predicting, making connections between ideas, drawing inferences and conclusions from text and graphic sources, and finding supporting text evidence commensurate with content area needs
ELPS.c.4K demonstrate English comprehension and expand reading skills by employing analytical skills such as evaluating written information and performing critical analyses commensurate with content area and grade-level needs.
ELPS.c.5 The ELL writes in a variety of forms with increasing accuracy to effectively address a specific purpose and audience in all content areas. ELLs may be at the beginning, intermediate, advanced, or advanced high stage of English language acquisition in writing. In order for the ELL to meet grade-level learning expectations across foundation and enrichment curriculum, all instruction delivered in English must be linguistically accommodated (communicated, sequenced, and scaffolded) commensurate with the student's level of English language proficiency. For Kindergarten and Grade 1, certain of these student expectations do not apply until the student has reached the stage of generating original written text using a standard writing system. The student is expected to:
ELPS.c.5A learn relationships between sounds and letters of the English language to represent sounds when writing in English
ELPS.c.5B write using newly acquired basic vocabulary and content-based grade-level vocabulary
ELPS.c.5C spell familiar English words with increasing accuracy, and employ English spelling patterns and rules with increasing accuracy as more English is acquired
